Seminars will be facilitated by Juraj Stefak and Sheng Kwang Wu, and the content will consist of medical, technical and ID training.

The target group is new candidates who wish to become a Level A classifier, or also as a “refresher” seminar for classifiers who have not been active for a long time. For new candidates it is obligatory to have a medical or technical TT background.

13 December 2011 With the inclusion of class 11 players during the course of 2011, we have considered the best way to continue the process in the lead up to the Paralympic Games to be held in London in 2012. Thus the PTT Division has approved the following:
  1. We will have classification at 2 Fa20 events in 2012 - Hungary and USA
  2. All other Fa20 events are open only to those class 11 with a confirmed status (C status)
  3. All Fa40 events will be open to class 11 with a C status.
  4. If a new class 11 player wishes to enter an event, he or she can only enter for the events in Hungary and USA were classification is available.
Should you have any questions, please contact Nico Verspeelt or Alison Burchell.
31 May 2011 Official classification re-evaluation list for 2011.
15 March 2011 All players who are in class 5 who did not participate in the 2010 ITTF PTT World Championships should ensure that they participate in a Factor 20 event prior to participating in the regional championships. Since the confirmation of the minimum eligibility for sitting players, it has been necessary for all players in class 5 to be reviewed. This would also help you to meet the tournament credit of 80 set for qualification for the Paralympic Games.
Should you have any questions, please contact Nico Verspeelt .
15 February 2011 All players and managers should note the changes to the classification procedure in operation with effect from 1 January 2011. For classification re-evaluations needs in factor 40, a new form will be used. Should there be any questions, please contact the Classification Secretary (Nico Verspeelt).
