Cadet & Junior Ranking Trials; 2018


Hi Everyone,


The Cadet and Junior county trials for 2018/2019 season have been confirmed for Friday 7th of September at the Dorset Table Tennis Centre, The Grange School, Redvers Road, Christchurch


Please note that only Under 15 & Under 18 players can take part in this event. No need to enter just turn up and compete.


Results from this competition will then form teams selected to represent Dorset. This year we have 4 teams (2 cadet & 2 Junior) each team consists of 3 boys and 2 girls.


The trials we start at 6.30 pm and will finish around 9pm. Cost is 5 per player.


Just another reminder that myself and 5 times national champion Alex Perry are holding a summer training camp in late August (please see poster for more details) the perfect way to get in shape for the county trials in September.


Best Regards; Matt Ware; Head Coach of the Dorset Table Tennis Academy; 07788968232

Letter reply to Dave Beverley, DTTA Chair

From CC Admin; David Goulden


I'm sure that you can have no complaints over the Divisions that your Juniors, Seniors, Veterans and Over 60s team are in, based on their relative divisions they have to play in.

The Over 60s in 1B, rather than 1C, was at the request of Dorset, representative, Reinhard Lindner

I agree that the Cadets are a much more difficult situation.

Initially, both Dorset Cadet teams were in 1B, but Dorset requested that their 2nd team be dropped into the Division 2 with 2A being their preference.

The Cheshire team replaced the Dorset 2 team, with Northants replacing Cheshire in 2B and Dorset 2 replacing Northants in 2A.

Division 1B does cover such a wide geographical area, but then, which team could be dropped out of Division 1A, at the expense of any other team in 1B

It is a pity that there are no Cadets in the lower divisions from Cornwall, Devon, Somerset and Avon, with only Hampshire & Wiltshire from the South West Region.

If there was, then it may have partially helped.

As far as matches in Division 1B, it would look like that Warwickshire could be a potential venue for the matches.

For matches in 2A, you could initially play in separate group matches:

Group 1; Dorset 2, Hampshire & Wiltshire

Group 2; Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire & Norfolk

With Surrey 3 joining either of these two groups

Then, all teams only need to come together for their final round of matches at a suitable venue for all teams.

Irrespective of TTE, there is no reason why the Counties in the South West Region cannot organise a get together themselves;Why do you need TTE to do it for you?

Dave Goulden; CC Admin


Can I just clarify that my comments were just as the Administrator for the County Championships, having taken over from Les Smith in 2017 and not of TTE.

I do not work for TTE and just like the rest of us, I'm only a volunteer.

I'm also the General Secretary for both my local league, Warrington, and my county, Lancashire.

I'm an international umpire and regularly umpire at weekend events, like the Junior, Senior, Veterans & Womans British Leagues, National Championships and Junior tournaments.

I'm also a tournament referee, but restrict my refereeing to just local closed tournaments.

The reason I mention this, is that from the inference of your letter, it may suggest to the members of your County that I have some role within TTE.

I presume that your thinking that I have a role within TTE is the reason that you have been including me in your recent emails.

Letter to Dave Goulden, CC Admin, from Dorset Chair, Dave Beverley

Hi there

I am aware that it is probably too late to change things, but my personal opinion, is that TTE have no regard to the travelling distance of some of the teams in the CC next season.

In particular, the Cadets Divisions, as I can see that Dorset Cadets will be in :-
Div 1b; Cheshire; Dorset 1; Durham 2; Gloucestershire; Lincolnshire; Staffordshire; Warwickshire.

Div 2A; Bedfordshire; Buckinghamshire; Dorset 2; Hampshire; Norfolk; Surrey 3; Wiltshire.

These teams consist of young children, just starting in table tennis, & I do not think it correct for them to travel as far away, which also means cost to parents, & the County.

How come the likes of Lincoln, Cheshire, Durham & Norfolk are in the same divisional area, as Dorset, Gloucester, Somerset, Wiltshire, Devon, Cornwall just name a few.


Regards; Dave Beverley; Dorset TTA Chair
