NB: Currently updated to end Nov / next update : soon (Jan).

However, if you think your Ranking is a *long* way out, let me know; if I agree, I can make *some* adjustments. You gain points for wins (more for 'unexpected' wins) / lose points for losses, again more if 'unexpected'.

Update after Weeks 1/2

Early days, but nice to see ALL wk 1/2 fixtures fulfilled & results in (bar one P/P). On the whole, results are as 'expected'; teams moving up finding the new level tough / expected table toppers largely have win(s) under their belt. Good to see a few new players. Looks like it'll be an interesting season. Handbooks / New TT Balls that were ordered (up to this week) have all now been issued to all teams.

St. Michaels have withdrawn from the League!

I have been advised that, unfortunately, St. Michaels have had to withdraw from the Hemel League, with immediate effect, due to an ongoing ability to raise a team - a combination of a couple of players dropping out of their regular squad, plus injuries to a couple more, meaning they would regularly have been unable to field a team, especially bearing in mind clashes with other matches for their players. Their one result has been 'expunged'.

Continued Use of (old) Celluloid TT Balls

As per the League AGM, last season, there is NO *requirement* to use new plastic TT balls in the League, as (old) celluloid ones remain Approved by ITTF, so can still be used.  League Rules mean we can use (Approved) celluloid TT balls for the rest of our season.

The new, plastic, TT balls are also valid, but current information seems to be that their quality & durability are not (yet) as good, though Home teams may use them if they wish.
