Table tennis format change

This year it has been decided to have separate men's and women’s table tennis team events at the National Championships due to the low number of female entries.

Previously, competitions consisted of men's and women's singles, doubles and mixed doubles, and played as a team event over the best of five rubbers.

However, this year the men’s event will have 10 teams who will play in two pools of five followed by play-offs for places. 

The women’s event will have seven teams who will play in a round-robin format. All matches will consist of one doubles and two singles matches. 

A schedule and fixtures will be available to download from the website nearer the time.
