The 2016/17 tournament was held on Saturday 21st January 2017 at the Kingfisher Table Tennis Club.
The event started 30 minutes late, due to really bad, icy conditions that morning and to allow for latecomers who hadn't paid attention to the time they were told to report. Some didn't as they thought they didn't need to arrive until the time of their first match. (If everyone had done this, there would have been no-one to umpire the first set of matches!)
One reserve stepped in to replace a late withdrawal and another arrived at very late notice to take the place of a "no show", so the full complement of 40 players enjoyed a full day's play through to the presentation at 5:40pm.
The 8 round-robin groups each produced a clear winner who went through to the knock-out quarter-finals. After some closely contested semi-finals the final was between two OLOP players, Felix Thomis (of Division 1) and Tamir Slobodskoy (of Division 4), but it was the lower ranked player who ran out winner.
Entry for this season's tournament was done online, using Doodle Poll which seemed to go down well. The Tournament itself was run using a new piece of software "Tournament Planner" and it's online equivalent "Tournament Software" which enabled the match results to be published online throughout the day as the tournament progressed. This allowed many players to use their smartphones to check the results. group standings and the knock-out draws as the day went on.
If anyone who took part has any comments on the tournament or how it was run, please email email@example.com
Many thanks to Wendy Porter who ran the event on the day and managed to get her head around using the new software.
