The ITTF recently introduced a rule change regarding giving advice to players during matches. The relevant change is as follows:
126.96.36.199. Players may receive advice at any time except during rallies, provided play is not thereby delayed; if any authorised person gives advice illegally the umpire shall hold up a yellow card to warn him or her that any further such offence will result in his or her dismissal from the playing area.
This means that players can now be given advice between points, provided it does not disrupt the continuity of the match. This rule change applies to Leinster League matches, so all teams and players should be aware of this change, and should understand the guidelines.
The 2017 league divisions have been announced, and are listed below.
There will be no fixture meeting for the League. All captains must do their fixtures either by email or phone as soon as possible. If fixtures have not been done in advance of the League commencing that team will not be able to play in the League.
If a team has no alternative but to postpone a match they must inform the steward first and they must give at least 48 hours notice.
The Shield competition is now drawing to a close, and there should only be a couple of matches remaining in each group.
Balgriffin 2 are the run away leader of Group 3, but most of the other groups are very tight. In Group 4, only 1 point separates the top 3 teams. If any results are missing from our results section, make sure to email them in.
The grading meeting to decide divisions for the league will take place on Tuesday 13th December. A number of clubs have yet to pay their league fees, and any outstanding fees must be paid before the league grading meeting.
The League divisions will be published online as soon as they are available.
