Change to Fixture List
Posted Sunday, 25th January 2015
The BDTTA Committee, at its meeting of the 16th January, agreed that the fifth round of the Times and Directory, scheduled for week commencing 30th March should be moved to week comencing 6th April and the League matches, scheduled for the 6th April moved to 30th March.
The reason for this change is that the Easter period covers these two weeks but the first week, having Good Friday in it, affects three teams in the League whereas the Easter Monday of the following week affects up to seventeen teams.

Balls for Next Season
Posted Monday, 4th August 2014
The Association is advised by Tees Sport, in its latest Newsletter, that two types of plastic balls were being manufactured one type with a seam and the other without. From tests carried out there was a clear difference in the way that they both play. Currently there were no plastic balls available for purchase from Butterfly or TSB. The British League and County Championships will be played with the celluloid ball for the time being. Other events are less certain as Table Tennis England is hoping to use a plastic ball in some of the Grand Prix and National Championships, and other events. It was therefore possible that players may be asked to use the celluloid ball one week and the plastic ball the next. After considerable discussion, the BDTTA Committee is agreed that for the 2014/15 BDTTA League Season, only the celluloid ball can be used in its League competition.
