Please include players' Ratings Central ID number on their membership profile, this will assist in making the grading process easier and fairer.


Table Tennis Victoria seeks to rank its table tennis athletes according to their skill level, particularly within age categories, to assist with event seeding and for other selection and recognition purposes.

Each player’s skill level is described by a mean and standard deviation. i.e. 1000 +/- 50: 1000 being the mean and +/-50 being the standard deviation

These points are used to seed players in Individual events at the Country Championships and will assist with the grading of teams.

When a player’s results have not been recorded to Rating Central, the player may not have a recorded skill level or points.

Clubs are requested to provide estimated points for players not recorded on Rating central.

They should do this by utilizing their knowledge of the player and comparing it to other players with known points.

Event directors may specify a general points level for players which may not be based on knowledge of that player.

Where a player’s points on the system are inconsistent with their level of skill (usually a result of no results being recorded recently), their standard deviation shown with their points on “Rating Central” will be high – which shows a lower level of confidence in the accuracy of the points. The standard deviation can be used when seeding players.

If clubs believe the points allocated to a player are significantly different to their skill level (as compared to similar players), they can point this out on the notes section of the entry form, to the Grading meeting chairperson, or by a separate email, prior to grading day. This information will be viewed on a case-by-case basis.

Individual Events will be conducted on Sunday immediately following the team’s events.  

Players MUST qualify for a team event and have made themselves available for selection in a Country Championships team this year to be eligible for participation in the individual events.

The final of the Men’s and Women’s Open Singles will be conducted on Monday at the conclusion of the team events.

Should either of these events be a round-robin, then that event will be completed on Sunday evening
