Home/Host team guidelines:

Playing Space: Ensure that the playing space is adequately sized and free from clutter/hazards. The playing area should provide enough room for players to move around comfortably without any obstruction.

Clean Table: The table tennis table should be clean and free from any dust, dirt, or debris. Use a suitable table cleaner and a lint-free cloth to wipe down the table surface before matches to ensure optimal playing conditions.

Equipment Inspection: Before matches, inspect the table tennis table, net assembly, scoreboard (if any), playing area & match balls to ensure they are in good condition and meet league standards. Replace any damaged or worn-out equipment as needed.

Safety Hazards: Remove any safety hazards from the playing area, such as loose cables, slippery surfaces, or sharp objects. Ensure that the playing space is well-lit and ventilated to provide a safe and comfortable environment for players.

Seating for Away Team: Provide seating accommodations for the away team and their supporters, ensuring that there is adequate seating available outside the playing area. Consider providing refreshments such as bottled water for visiting players as a gesture of hospitality. Remember that the away team will host you someday, so they will reciprocate your hospitality.

Sportsmanship: Extend a warm welcome to the away team upon their arrival and ensure they have everything they need. Foster a spirit of sportsmanship and camaraderie by promoting a friendly and welcoming atmosphere during fixtures. Allow up to 5 minutes for the Away team to warm up and acclimate to the playing area and equipment.

Match Officials: If matches are officiated by official umpires, ensure they are provided with a suitable area to oversee matches and have clear visibility of the playing area. Respect the decisions of match officials and cooperate with them to ensure fair play.

Post-Match Procedures: After matches, ensure that any scorecards or match results are submitted promptly and accurately as per league regulations. Post a group teams selfie on your social media page and use tag @t2tabletennis (on Instagram) or @GautengT2 (on Facebook). 
NB: Photos should be appropriate and compliment the spirit of the sport and not be defamatory towards any persons.
Remember to also thank the away team for having the opportunity to host them and after they have departed, be sure to check-in that they have reached their destination safely.

Away/Visiting team guidelines:

Arrival Time: Arrive at the venue well before the scheduled start time of the fixture to allow for adequate preparation and warm-up. Punctuality is important to ensure that matches can start on time, and end in time.

Equipment Preparation: Ensure that you have all the necessary equipment for the matches, including your own table tennis rackets, appropriate clothing/kit, and any personal items you may need (eg. Towel, snacks, refreshments, etc).

Respect the Host Venue: Show respect for the host venue and its facilities. Follow any guidelines or instructions provided by the home team regarding the use of equipment, any facilities, seating arrangements, and other amenities. Do not, under any circumstances, pass any negative remarks or complaints about the venue, equipment, facilities or anything else provided by the hosts. 

Warm-Up: Take advantage of the warm-up time provided before fixtures to familiarize yourself with the playing conditions and adjust to the table and surroundings. Use this time to practice your strokes and get into the rhythm of play.

Courtesy and Sportsmanship: Maintain a courteous and respectful attitude towards the home team, any match officials, and fellow players throughout your visit. Embrace the spirit of sportsmanship and fair play, regardless of the outcome of the matches.

Adapt to Conditions: Be prepared to adapt to different playing conditions, including variations in table surface, lighting, and other environmental factors. Stay focused and maintain your concentration during matches, adjusting your game as needed.

Post-Match Procedures: After matches, ensure that any scorecards or match results are submitted promptly and accurately as per league regulations. Thank the home team for their hospitality and cooperation before departing from the venue.
