Table tennis matches are scheduled, in groups. You will be responsible for checking your time slot at the score desk to ensure you know when your group is playing.

 

Format:

Ladies singles are played in groups of 8. Each Group will complete their games in the allocated time slot. A win will be counted as 3 points and a loss as 0. Once all group games have been played, the top 4 in each group will progress to the quarter final. Where there is a tie on points, goal difference will be taken into account. Therefore points won and conceded in group games are imperative.

 

Ladies doubles will be played as a single group of 5. A win will be counted as 3 points and a loss as 0. Once all group games have been played, the top 4 will progress to the semi-final. Where there is a tie on points, goal difference will be taken into account. Therefore points won and conceded in group games are imperative.

 

Kids table tennis will be played in groups of 4. Each Group will complete their games in the allocated time slot. A win will be counted as 3 points and a loss as 0. Once all group games have been played, the top 2 in each group will progress to the quarter final. Where there is a tie on points, goal difference will be taken into account. Therefore points won and conceded in group games are imperative.

 

Scoring:

Group games - first to 15 points (no 2 point difference)

Knockout games – first to 15 points with a 2 point difference required to win. Play will continue until a 2 point difference is achieved.

 

Rules:

All players are expected to be on their allocated tables on time. We will allow up to 1 minute to warm up before the game. If you are late to your game by more than 5 minutes then that game will be forfeited. The only exception is if you are playing another sport and your next game is scheduled. You will be allowed more time in this case.

Before play commences, a toss shall be conducted and the side winning the toss will choose between serving first or what side you would like to receive the opening serve from.

 

Singles:

  • Players can serve anywhere across the table. It is no necessary to serve diagonally.

  • Each player has 2 consecutive serves before service passes to the opponent.

  • If a serve touches the net and crosses to the opponent's side, the serve must be taken again as service must be clear of the net.

  • If a serve hits the net and falls on the server’s side, the point goes to the opponent.

  • After service, play continues until a fault is made or the ball goes out of play.

 

Doubles:

  • Players must serve diagonally and always from the right-hand half of the table to the opponent's right- hand half.

  • Each player has 2 consecutive serves before service passes to the opponent.

  • At the change of serve, the previous receiver becomes the new server and the partner of the previous server becomes the receiver.

  • A doubles pair must strike the ball alternatively

  • If a serve touches the net and crosses to the opponent's side, the serve must be taken again as service must be clear of the net.

  • If a serve hits the net and falls on the server’s side, the point goes to the opponent.
