Table Tennis SA News
Dear Table Tennis Friends
As you know, COVID-19 continues to dominate headlines across the globe and in Australia. Your health and safety, that of our coaches, volunteers and family members are our number one priority.
Consistent with the current messaging and recent guidance received from sporting and health experts, TTSA has made the difficult decision to suspend all activities up until at least 30 April 2020.
Please note that previous advice from TTSA was to suspend activities through to 31 March however due to the fluidity of the situation, and recent directives issued by health and regulatory authorities, the TTSA Board approved a suspension of all Table Tennis activities until at least 30 April 2020.
Due to the timing of the National Championships being in April 2020, Teams will be selected by 28 February 2020 at the latest with results from 2019 to be taken into consideration where relevant.
Signed EXPRESSION OF INTEREST form (Attachment A) must be returned via email to firstname.lastname@example.org by 25 February 2020. No late expression of interests will be accepted after this date.
Please note, if a player is U18 a responsible adult will need to accompany that player.

The TTSA Board have decided that the RevolutioniseSPORT online system will be used for recording Winter Pennant results in season 2020.
RevolutioniseSPORT is an online cloud-based platform for sports club management, including membership and finances, competition management, governance tools, and more. Table Tennis SA will be using the system for competition management. This system is also being used by another table tennis association for the management and recording of their pennant results..
The advantage of using RevolutioniseSPORT is that match results may be entered by a team captain or a Club administrator directly into the system, this means that results are updated online and immediately available for viewing. This will also enable the results to be loaded to Ratings Central in the week following the matches played which is much faster than what currently occurs
The system will also enable the score steward (Tim) to follow up via an email from the system should a result not be entered. This change will mean that it will no longer be necessary for team captains to take a photo of the score sheet and either email or text the photo to the score steward.
RevolutioniseSPORT is used by many other sports for online recording of sports results and is an exciting innovation for Table Tennis SA in enabling the ability to view draws, team results, premiership tables and individual player tables online.
