Event description

Description

A short-format table tennis singles competition for social players, league players and everyone in between.

Open to players of all standards and ages from 11+ (under 11s at the discretion of the organisers).

Play will be in groups of 5 players of a similar standard. Each player plays the others in their group, three games up to 11, no deuces.

“Every point counts!” Final positions in the group will be determined by total points won, not sets. Points difference will be used in the event of a tie

Group winners will receive a medal, a certificate, and a small prize.

Doors open 19.00, matches played between 19.15 and 21.15.

Register in advance by 1 pm on the 19th December by online booking (£3 + 40p processing fee) or contact the organiser and pay £3 cash on the door.

The competition is run by the Oxford and District Table Tennis Association (ODTTA) with support from Table Tennis England and Oxford City Council Ping! Oxford. An organiser with DBS clearance will be in overall charge on the night, and there will be at least one person present with up-to-date first aid training.

The organisers reserve the right to change the format to accommodate the number of entries to ensure all players get a good level of play.

We will use additional tables at Temple Cowley United Reformed Church OX4 2ES if numbers are high. We will tell you in good time if your group is playing there.


FAQs

Is there parking?

The school has plenty of bike racks and free parking spaces. Several buses stop nearby.

We may have additional tables at the former Temple Cowley United Reformed Church, where there is also free parking.

Can I just turn up and play?

You must register to play by 1 pm on the 19th December online, by email or text, stating your level of play. Pay online or with cash on the door. If you don't have current membership of Table Tennis England, you need to take out free Associate membership.

What group will I be in?

The organisers will place players in the appropriate group for their level of play, based on the information available (including previous summer league results and/or league form).

I don't have my own bat, is equipment provided?

Yes, we provide balls, and bats for those who don't have their own.

Does it matter what I wear?

Whatever you want - but avoid wearing white tops as this makes the ball hard to see, and wear appropriate shoes for exercise.

Does it matter if I can't serve properly?

Players in the higher level groups should follow normal service rules as far as possible. Service rules in the lower level groups will be more relaxed to accommodate inexperienced and social players, but we will help you to learn how to serve properly.

I'm a beginner, is this competition for me?

As long as you can knock the ball over the net, you can give it a go, as you will be in a group with players of a similar level.

I'm a pretty good player, is this competition for me?

Yes, we'll put you in a group with players of a similar standard. Why not bring your fellow players along to make certain of competitive games? The top group(s) will play on good ITTF standard tables using 3* 40+ balls.
