  • 3: Splitting of the Premier Division

    Tuesday, 24th November 2015

    The following changes were agreed at the AGM to take effect in the 2015-16 season.

    At the last AGM the Committee were charged with the duty of examining whether the Premier Division should, or could, be divided into two parts, at the halfway point of the season, in order to provide better and more equal competition for those in that division. After considerable discussion, the Committee agreed that the Premier division would remain undivided for the rest of the playing season.

    Proposed by AE, seconded by TV and agreed.

    There were two deciding factors in coming to this decision.


    1) Due to a late withdrawal from the Premier the split would have been one division of 4 and one of 5.

    The fixtures for the 4 team division would be just 6 matches. This was going to be in conflict with our first guiding principal this year which was to give all teams, as full of a quota of fixtures as possible.


    2) A split would result in the premier fixtures overlapping with the Individual Events. This would have meant that some players may not have been able to enter a tournament due to League fixture commitments.


    We will continue to engage with our members and explore ways we can improve the way we run our Association.

  • 5: BDTTA Changes for 2015-16 Season

    Wednesday, 22nd April 2015

    The following changes were agreed at the AGM to take effect in the 2015-16 season.

    League formation

    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

    Phil Hadley

    Chairman BDTTA
