FORMAT (Points System)

This year the committee has decided to modify the format for the Senior Handicap & Consolation Competition.

All players have been individually handicapped, so each individual game will have a handicap start and we are using up to 21 instead of 11. The winner of the set will earn one point for their team. The winners will be the team with the most points at the end of set 9. No Doubles will be played.

The change to the format is to attempt to address the problem where one players handicap or performance on the night can make it impossible for the team to win.

Please ensure you are using this year’s sheets as there have been minor adjustments to the rating – handicap calculations.

 

Singles

A set will be the best of three games, points being scored up to 21. Five serves each (as per the old table tennis laws).  A game will be won when the first player reaches 21 and is two points clear (No sudden death).

Example A : Player A (Group 7) v Player X (Group 15). Subtract the lower group from the higher group to determine the difference. Then refer to the handicap sheet (Diff in rating is 8 equals a start of 9 to player X). When the game starts the player serving 1st, would serve once, then each player will have 5 serves each. Repeat this process for each game.

Example B : Player A (Group 9) v Player X (Group 15). Subtract the lower rating from the higher rating to determine the difference. Then refer to the handicap sheet (Diff in rating is 6 equals a start of 7 to player X). When the game starts the player serving 1st, would serve three times, then each player will have 5 serves each. Repeat this process for each game.

 

Please ensure both team captains are happy with the handicap start before each match.

Home team captains must contact their opponents to inform them if their match is not going to be played on the normal home night.

All players registered prior to 30th October, who have played one league match in the proceeding or current season are eligible to play and additional players can apply for a handicap when they have played in one league match. All teams who have played once and lost in the senior cup will play in the consolation cup competition stating in the week commencing 11th March.

Please note – You must play in the main cup to qualify for the Consolation Cup. If you concede in the main cup you are out of the competition (see Rule 16.5).

Please note Rule 16.6– A Player can only play for the team they are Registered for. You cannot play up in the cup.
