Most people who are interested in playing table tennis at a club for the first time have the same questions, such as: “I’m a beginner, will anybody want to play with me?”; “I don’t have a bat, can I borrow one?”; “Do I have to know all the rules?”; “Can I get some tips or coaching to help me improve?”; and “Can my friend and I just book a table for ourselves for a hour or two?”.
Here’s the answers to those (and other) FAQs we get at the Perth Table Tennis Club.
Weekly Swiss Style Sunday Tournament
Starting from the 24th July 2016 (now 17th July 2016 due to West Coast tournament being cancelled), we will be running a weekly Swiss Style tournament every Sunday here at Perth Table Tennis Club. Everybody had a lot of fun at our recent “Don’t Miss the Swiss” competition, and several players said that it would be great if there was a tournament like this to play in every week. So now there is!
We have changed the starting time due to feedback from players, as well as the intention to allow our state junior players enough time to finish their morning training and get over to our club.
The new starting time is 2.00pm. Entry fee is $20, so just turn up by 1.45pm, hand over your entry fee to the trustworthy looking gentleman at the door (that would be me), and start playing! The tournament should wrap up around 5.00pm, depending on numbers.
Following feedback from players, we have adjusted our prize money system to give all players a chance of winning their group category and picking up a reward. We are using the Ratings Central ranking system to assign players a rating, and then the prize money is allocated as follows:
$50 – players over 1600 points winner
$40 – players between 1300 to 1600 points winner
$30 – players between 900 to 1300 points winner
$30 – players under 900 points winner
Players without a Ratings Central points rating will be given an initial rating by the Tournament Director.
Here’s a quick look at the “Don’t Miss the Swiss” tournament held on 26 June 2016.
