Table Tennis Life             


ETTC Ladder System Rules

  1. Current ITTF Laws of Table Tennis, as modified to suit local circumstances, govern match play.
  2. The 5 players assigned to a table play each other in a round robin (3/5 games) and record the match result (in games) on the score sheet e.g. 3-0, 3-2, 3-1.    
  3. A late or absent player forfeits all matches and those present on that table win 3-0.
  4. If a player does not play a match, or is unable to complete it, the match is forfeited 0-3.
  5. Unfinished matches at close of play are decided by a single coin toss for each of the remaining games.    
  6. Drop-in player scores do not affect final rankings.
  7. The late deadline on Fridays is 7:30 p.m. and 8 p.m. on Mondays.               
  8. The number of matches a player wins determines their final rank, which determines their assignments the following week. First- and second-ranked players will move up a level; fourth and fifth-ranked players will move down a level; and third-ranked players will stay on the same level.
  9. Late or absent members automatically go down a level. If more than two players are late or absent on the same table, the initial sequence of ranks will be maintained.
  10. Games won and lost are only used for tie breaking. The tie breaking process compares the number of games won minus games lost between the tied players only. 
  11. In a 3-way tie, the first pass tries to simultaneously establish the relative positions of all 3 tied players.  If a second pass is necessary to break a tie between 2 players, the higher position goes to the winner of the match between those 2 players.  If all players remain tied after the second pass, the initial sequence of ranks is retained.
