Welcome to table tennis at the worldOutgames 2013.
Make sure to register and receive updates and more information about your sport!
Hope to see you all in Antwerp!
In each division and category there will be preliminary rounds. Based on these rankings, the tournament continues in a head table and a 2nd table.
We strive to make 4 or 8 pools with 4 players for each category and division. The upper half from each pool plays in the head table, the lower half from each pool plays the consolidations. In the tables, the tournament continues in a knock-out system.
The double and mixed double competitions will be played according to a Fins model.
- Singles (men/women)
- Doubles (men/women)
- Mixed doubles
Divisions: An A, B,C, D (recreational) division for each category.
A division: provincial, national or international (competition) experience
B division: strongly advanced players with regional or provincial (competition) experience
C division: advanced players with limited (competition) experience
D division: recreational players, starters or players with little or no (competition) experience.
It will be possible to participate in every category, the schedule will be such that there's no overlap between the different categories.
Pay attention! If you register for multiple categories, you must always play in the same division! This is the division you registered for when subscribing for the single competition. Example: if you register for the B division single, you'll have to play your double or mixed double matches also in the B division. Make sure this matches with your possible future partners when you register!
