This is a grand prix event for British Para Table Tennis and is part of the BPTT Grand Prix series. For this competition ALL entrants must be members of BPTT.
Class singles and Open banded events will each be split into 4 categories.
If insufficient entries are received, then the organisers reserve the right to merge male and female categories. The organisers reserve the right to cancel a banded event if insufficient entries are received. Players would then be placed in the next highest band
1. Class Singles
Players will play against other players in their Class. Classes will be split into male and female categories. Organisers reserve the right to merge classes and/or male female categories if insufficient entries are received (less than 3), apart from class 11 which is never merged, if less than 3 it will be cancelled. If you are unsure what class you are (1-11) please contact the organiser who can help.
All competitions will be held under the rules of the International Table Tennis Federation (ITTF).
2. Open Singles
There will be three bands. Players may only play in one band but they may elect to play in a higher band if they so wish:
Band A – Players ranked 1 to 12.
Band B – Players ranked 13 to 25
Band C – Players ranked outside the top 25 or new players that have never played a BPTT competition before.
All tables and nets / posts will be ITTF approved. The 729 3* ball will be used during this tournament.
Entries should be received with payment by Saturday 4th September 2021. Entries accepted after that date will be at the discretion of the referee / organiser.
Should the number of entries exceed the time we have available for the event, BPTT reserves the right to decline entries based on a last in first out process.
