Ideals of the Melton Table Tennis Association & Player Code of Conduct

Ideals of the Melton Table Tennis Association

The Melton Table Tennis Association Committee expects that when playing as a member of this club, you will:

  • Have the primary goal of gaining enjoyment from your play                  
  • Play by the rules                                                                                                      
  • Judge yourself by the effort that you put in, not just by the results of the game
  • Accept both defeat and victory with equal good grace.
  • Acknowledge good play by your opponent where appropriate.
  • Be a good sport, acknowledging both edges and double-hits when they occur.

Player Code of Conduct

  • All season fees are to be paid by round 3, unless an arrangement has been made with the club tresurer.
  • Outstanding match fees may result in a player being denied entry into the facility until all fees owed have been paid.
  • Table Tennis Victoria registration, which includes player insurance, is due by the end of the first season of competition each year.  Registration is for 12 months and it permits players to compete in any TTV sanctioned competition or tournament (eg. Country Championships).
  • Unruly behaviour will not be tolerated. Bad language, abuse, damaging the facility and unsportsmanlike behaviour may result in the committee taking disciplinary action.
    Repeat offenders will be suspended from playing.
  • All participants are to be treated with dignity and respect to ensure that the Association remains free from discrimination, sexual harassment, bullying and victimisation.
  • Alcohol and drugs are not permitted on the premises, and any participant significantly under the influence will be asked to leave the facility. As a guide, any participant thought to be over the legal driving limit (.05%) may be asked to leave the premises.
  • Smoking and the use of e-cigarettes (vaping) is prohibited in all enclosed areas and building entrances.
  • All injuries are to be reported to a committee member ON THE NIGHT that the injury occurs.
  • The Melton Table Tennis Association will not be responsible of any lost, stolen, or damaged personal equipment. It is a player’s responsibility to look after their own equipment.
  • All complaints or suggestions for improvement should be made in writing to the committee.
