Yellow Table Tennis Balls in normal Match Play

The subject of the use of Yellow Table Tennis Balls in normal match play was raised at the 2014 SDTTL AGM. An approved ITTF Yellow Table Tennis ball is permitted for normal match play in the Southend League as long as;

    1. its use has been agreed between both teams prior to the match being played
    2. it is agreed that no player will wear a Yellow or Orange coloured shirt for the said game
Please see website for Approved ITTF Table Tennis Balls

New Table Ball. A note from Sandra Deaton, Chair, Table Tennis England

I know that many of you want to know about the situation regarding the use of the new plastic ball at Table Tennis England events next season. The ITTF has introduced it with effect from July 1.

I am aware that we are not going to be able to please everyone with this as there are conflicting requirements and demands. But we need to balance the impact on all our players at all levels, allow for a transitional period, while respecting the ITTF's decision.

This has been discussed at Table Tennis England, and we are checking on availability of the balls at comparable events around Europe. We are also discussing this with tournament organisers and key partners in our events.

When that information is gathered, we will forward the decision to all members via email and on the website no later than next week.

Winter League 2014 - Winners and Final Tables.

Thorpe Bay A are the SDTTL 2013-14 Winter League Champions for the Premier Division. The postponed match between Rawreth A and Runnymede A was holding us to announce all the Winter League winners and that match has finally been played.

Report from Duncan Taylor, Prem Div secretary. "We can finally announce the winners of this years Premier Division and it could not have been closer. In one of the tightest finishes in recent memory Rawreth A needed a 7-2 win over Runnymede A to take the title. They did win but only 6-3 to leave them agonisingly 1 point behind our Champions THORPE BAY A. Congratulations to Thorpe Bay A and all their players and a big thanks to all players in the division for making it such a great season. See you all in September.....Duncan"

ETTA Newsletter 3: Future funding | New structures | Talent Development Centres

* Sport England who provide substantial Funding to our Sport, want changes in Structure and general Professionalism before they will commit to future funding: this has a major affect on Junior Development.
    * The ETTA Head Quarters is moving from Hastings to Milton Keynes to a new purpose built Centre.
    * The 9 Regions of last Season are being changed to 4 larger Regions and the good News is that Essex are now in One Region rather than being split between 2, as they have been for several years.
    * There will be 4 Key Coaching Centres, namely Ormsby, Plymouth, Stevenage and Batts.

- A thank you letter to George Reeves from the Chairman of the LLR for all volunteers who helped at the 2013 Bikeathon on 1st Sep 2013.

"Dear George,
Many grateful thanks for organising and managing the start/finish area of the Bikeathon at Shoebury East Beach again this year. On the 1st September we held another very successful Bikeathon, our nineteenth. This was due in no small measure to the efforts of all of your volunteers from the Southend & District Table Tennis League. We realise how fortunate we are to have people like them who year after year undertake an important role in the success of the event. We fully appreciate that without help such as yours we could not run this Bikeathon.

- George Reeves organised a "Rawreth and Friends Night Out" Dinner and Karaoke at the Gold Coast Chinese Restaurant last night 13th Sep with helpers at the Bikeathon. Some potential xFactor winners were spotted at the Karaoke party after the dinner. Check the funny clips at our League Video Channel below.

Latest League Tables for the Winter League Season 2012-13, few results still awaiting to be received.

Congratulations to Rawreth A our Premier Division Champions for 2012/13. They won their final game of season 8-1 which was enough to ensure they couldn’t be caught by their rivals. Eric Green put up the main resistance from their opponents Rawreth B with a win over Chris Jacob and taking George Reeves to 5 sets but apart from that it was plain sailing for the title winners. It’s been a solid performance from Rawreth A all year will all team members contributing but special mention to Southend Singles Champion Kevin Read who lead from the front by winning 89% of his 56 games.
