Portland Table Tennis League
The Portland Table Tennis will run over 2 calendar months, starting on the 4th. During this time, the players in each league will contact each other and arrange to play their matches. The Portland Table Tennis league is self-driven by its participants. It will be successful if all players make the effort to contact each other, turn up and complete the matches.
JOINING THE LEAGUE
- New players will be entered at the beginning of a new league starting. Please provide both your email and contact number by either calling 0115 8599968 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
- You are unable to join a league while it is in progress. You will be added onto a waiting list and join the league when the next one starts.
- New members will start in the bottom league unless you request to be put in at a higher league. The League organiser will then make the decision on where you start.
- The league is FREE to join for all players and abilities.
There isn’t a set rule as to which player contacts the other, however “reasonable effort” must be made to contact the other people in your league. Contact details will be sent to all players via email by the league organizer. If you have made good attempts at making contact with someone in your league and had no response by the 20th of the second month – please report this to the league organizer.
OTHER RULES TO NOTE
- A player will do 2 serves (playing 2 points), then the opponent serves for 2 points. You will keep alternating in this way.
- If it gets to 10-10, you will only serve once, then your opponent will serve one. You will keep alternating in this way.
- When serving if the ball hits the net and goes over it is a let serve (play again)
- If the ball hits the net during a rally, there is no let & the point is awarded to the opponent

SCORING EACH MATCH
- Matches will be best of 5 games;
- Games are first to 11 points, rally point scoring (points scored on any serve) If it is 10-10, you continue until a player is 2 points clear.
- If both players agree, AND ONLY IF BOTH AGREE, then you can revert to another scoring system.
LEAGUE POINTS SYSTEM
Points are awarded in the following fashion:
3/0 3/1 3/2 Walkover = 3/0
All players receive a bonus point for every game played.
- Your total score will be added up and then put in a table to find your final ranking in the league.
- Scores MUST be entered onto the notice board immediately after your match.
- Enter your final match score in games (i.e. 3/0, 3/2 etc) into the relevant boxes on the sheets on the Notice Board. The software and the league organiser will do the rest.
- The leagues are taken down to add up the scores at 8.00PM on the last day of the league. Any scores not submitted by this time will not be counted. Any queries about scores entered must also come in before 8pm on the last day.
