BDTTA Changes for 2015-16 Season
Posted Wednesday, 22nd April 2015
The following changes were agreed at the AGM to take effect in the 2015-16 season.
When forming the league, the divisions will be filled in a "top down" order , ensuring that each division will have a complete set of teams to fill the fixtures.
This may result in teams being put in divisions outside the normal promotions and relegations.
Please contact your Club Secretary to convey any constraints that you might have.
For the premier division only, for the final portion of fixtures, if possible, the division will be split into two halves and fixtures arranged for each half , as two "mini" divisions. This arrangement is dependent on several factors that will not be known until later in the season so it cannot be certain it will be possible to implement, but the commitment is to attempt it.
ITTF Regulation Adoption
a) Time-outs - One time out of 1 minute per match (best of 5) is allowed.
b) Towelling down - Towelling down is restricted to only every 6 points.
Good Luck for the coming season
