Announcement of 2016 CCCTO Annual Table Tennis Tournament
To promote mutual-understanding and friendship among fellow Christians and people of local Chinese community, to enrich the activities of CCCTO and local community, and to encourage the participation of physical exercises for all, CCCTO will hold its annual Thousand Oaks Chinese Table Tennis Tournament. All local Chinese and table tennis lovers are welcome to join and compete in this tournament.
In order to encourage wide participation, teamwork, and coordination among team members, the tournament will hold only team competitions. The active CCCTO members should construct their teams based on CCCTO fellowships. All other players, who don’t belong to any fellowships, should join a team of a particular fellowship, or the tournament will assign the player(s) to teams. Every team should have five to six players, including at least one female player. A fellowship can have more than one team if it has enough interesting people to form multiple teams. Similarly, multiple fellowships can have a joint team if each of them does not have enough players. Each team should have a captain and couch who is in charge of all aspects of the team during the tournament.
Preliminary Round: All teams will be divided into groups. Each group will have four teams. All teams play round robin matches within their groups.
Final Round: The top two teams of each group of preliminary round will compete for championship of Level A. The bottom two teams of each group of preliminary round will compete for championship of Level B. Within each group, all the teams will be divided into two groups. All teams will play round robin matches within their group. The top two teams of each group will meet in semi-finals of their level and winners will advance to final.
Every meet between two teams has two single matches and three double matches in the order of double, single, mixed double, double, and single. The team that wins three matches first is the winner. All teams will be divided into four groups and play round-robin within their group in the preliminary phase. The number one and number two teams advance to playoff, which is eliminating phase.
Each match has up to five games. Each game has eleven points. The player(s) who win three games first are the winner of the match.
Two single matches have to be played by different players. Any particular player can not represent his/her team twice in the first three matches. Any particular player can not represent his/her team more than twice. All three doubles have to be played by different combinations of players. In order to make the games more attractive and encouraging to female players, the scoring of each game has been altered as following (This rule will not apply if any of the female players are seed players).
|Match Player(s)||Starting Scores|
|Single||Female vs. male||2 : 0|
|Double||Female & female vs. male & male||2 : 0|
|Female & female vs. female & male||2 : 0|
|Female & male vs. male & male||2 : 0|
