Devon Schools Table Tennis Team Championships

Devon Schools Table Tennis Association are holding the Annual Team Championships on WEDNESDAY 9th NOVEMBER 2016 at Eggbuckland Community College, Westcott Close, Plymouth.

The starting time will be 10.00am and finishing time approximately 2.30pm – depending on the size of entry. Hot food and light refreshments will be available to purchase throughout the day (served by Joola Table Tennis Club).

Events to be held will be Under 19 Boys and Girls, Under 16 Boys and Girls, Under 13 Boys and Girls and Under 11 Boys and Girls.

The decision as to whether the competition will be run on a group or knock out basis will depend upon the size of the entry and the decision as to this matter will be at the sole discretion of the Devon Schools’ Association Secretary (Graham Pearson), whose responsibility it is to organise the competition.

Teams will consist of four players (with the exception of the U19 Girls*) but may be changed during the competition so that extra players may be used. Substitutes must play as the fourth ranked player. If numbers 1-3 drop out, original players move up one place to allow the substitute to play as number four. Players must be listed in rank order of ability and must be under the age stipulated on 1st September 2016. Players may take part in only one age group competition and at least one playing member of each team must be competing in the youngest event for which he or she is eligible.

*U19 Girls rule change for 2016-17: A team will consist of 2 players who will both play each of their opponents at singles and there will be a doubles match (half way through the singles matches) making a 5-set match. At least one of the two players needs to be too old to take part in the U16 competition (ie of sixth form age).

The two colour bat rule will apply for this competition as will the usual rules prohibiting the wearing of white clothing by competitors. Shorts must be worn during play.

All winning schools will represent the County in the Zone Championships that will be played on Sunday 15th January 2017.
