Table Tennis is a Tier 3 event. The structure of play (e.g., round robin, single elimination) will be determined by the number of players that show up.
The number of cadets advancing to the Regimental Tournament will be between four (4) and sixteen (16), and depends upon quality of play in Qualifying Tournaments.
Desired roster size is two (2) players per company. No more than eight (8) players per company may participate in the Regimental Tournament.
Per the published schedule (typically three consecutive Tuesdays), players report at 1600 to Deas Hall. Players are randomly assigned to a tournament bracket and play until eliminated or win the bracket. Players must play in a minimum of two (2) Challenge Tournaments to be eligible to advance to the Regimental Tournament. Players will be ranked by their win-loss record. Ties are broken by points scored (most) then points scored against (least).
A match is one game played to 21 points (must win by a 2-point margin).
Who serves first is the P I N G rally winner. The serve changes after five points. Once 20 points have been awarded, the serve goes to player behind (i.e., to the man down) and continues until the match is won.
USA Table Tennis governs all other rules.
