The Charlotte Table Tennis Club runs three different leagues:

The Central Carolinas Super League - a weekly competitive league, consisting of 4 to 6 round robin groups of 5-8 players each. 

Youth League - a weekly league for beginning youth players run by Steven Thompson

Team Leagues - three-player teams that compete in singles and doubles matches each week.

Central Carolinas Super League



You must be a USATT and CTTC club member in good standing (dues paid up) to participate. Guests (USATT members) may be approved for play by either the league administrator or a CTTC club officer.

2.Registration and Start Time

Thursday evenings are league play at CTTC. If you wish to participate, you must register and sign-in on Stadiumtt.com between Tuesday 6AM and Thursday noon. Players that do not sign in or text in before 6 PM Wednesday are not guaranteed participation in that week’s league  The process of setting Divisions begins Thursday afternoon. Play will start by 7:00 PM. If you cannot arrive before 7:00 PM and wish to participate, you must text message 704-560-2441 and leave your name. You must arrive before 7:45 PM to play.

3. League Ratings

League ratings are calculated using the USATT league webpage algorithm (the same as the USATT tournament algorithm). Initial league ratings are set using:

a.League rating from any other USATT league

b.Current USATT tournament rating plus 150 points

c.Average of best win and worst loss

For initial seeding, an unrated player is given an estimate by the league administrator or CTTC club officer

The Central Carolinas Super league is unsanctioned - USATT membership IS required to play but league matches do not have any effect on USATT tournament ratings.

4. Division Assignments

Players are assigned to Divisions in league rating order, with the exceptions of players selected to move up or move down by the criteria outlined below. Just because you play in a particular Division one Thursday does not mean you will be in the same Division the next Thursday. It all depends on how many players with higher ratings than yours show up to play. If you should find yourself in a Division lower than the previous week even though you believe you deserve to stay in the same Division, please do not annoy the league administrator with your complaint as he is busy arranging play for 30 or more other players and would appreciate participating in his own matches with a minimum of distraction. Resolve to play even better this week, win all your matches, and move up on merit. We strive for no less than 6 players and no more than 8 players in each Division, with a maximum of 6 Divisions.

5. Move Up

Players may be selected to move up the next time they play within 2 weeks to a Division higher than their previous Division by either most matches won or highest league rating points gain. The first player in a Division selected to move up will be the player to win the most matches in their Division. Ties are decided by head to head results first, then by USATT/ITTF tie break rules. The second player to move up will be the one with the highest league rating points gain not including the player with the most match wins and not including players who do not win at least 2 matches. A move up is only good for the first league event played in the next two weeks.

6.Move Down

Players may be selected to move down the next time they play to a Division lower than their previous Division by fewest matches won or most league rating points lost in the Division. The first player to move down will be the player with the fewest match wins in the Division. Ties are decided by head to head results first, then by USATT/ITTF tie break rules. The next player to move down is the player with the largest league rating point loss for that Division, not including players who win more than half their matches. A move down has no time limit and will remain until the player next competes in the league. If a player moving down is more than 238 rating points higher than every other player in the division, the player may remain in the next higher division.


Players that choose to not compete in all their assigned matches in a Division will forfeit all unplayed matches with corresponding loss of league rating points. The defaulting player’s opponent will mark the letter “W” on the digital match record sheet in the box corresponding to their number of games won and the letter “L” in the box corresponding to their opponent’s number of games won. The defaulting player’s opponent may decline the win and mark the letter “X” in both boxes.

8.Service and other Rules of Play

As this is a USATT league, our aim is to follow USATT rules and guidelines as much as possible. If there is some doubt as to the legality of a serve, there are several USATT certified umpires in the CTTC who are willing to observe if requested. (Ling Fan, Simon Brain, Bill Englebreth).


Be considerate of others. Divisions run most efficiently when all players take turns and rotate appropriately. Look at the match record sheet and see who has not played as many matches and get them on the table next.

10.Player of the Week/Year

The Player of the Week is decided simply by the largest league rating increase for that week. The Player of the Year is decided by the player who is most often Player of the Week during a given year. 

11.League Administrator

All matters not covered by these rules will be decided by the league administrator or by CTTC officers in the absence of the league administrator.

Youth League

The Youth League meets on Wednesday evenings at 6:30 PM. This is moderately competitive league for young beginning players who are not yet adept at attacking underspin balls with loops, giving them the opportunity to gain experience with peers at a similar skill level before moving on the the Central Carolinas Super League. Service rules are slightly relaxed and matches are best 2 out of 3 instead of 3 out of 5. For more information, contact Steven Thompson at charlottettacademy@gmail.com

Team League

Team League just started at CTTC in January 2023 and is still in development. In the first season, we have twelve teams of 3 players each, with a maximum combined league rating of 5000 (mostly). Each week, teams pair off for a series of matches - singles between the highest rated, middle rated, and lowest rated players - and doubles between the highest/lowest and middle/lowest pairs from each team.  Results do not affect individual ratings - the teams are ranked on a leader board by ration of matches won to total matches and games won to total games. 

In the second season, which should start in March 2023, we will likely have two divisions - one with a maximum combined league rating of 5400 and one with a maximum combined league rating of 4500.

We will have a link for registration for the second season on this page.
