New format

The goal behind the new formats is for countries to be able to build their best “multi-table team” and not to select just the best “multi-table players”. For example, a country could choose Garlando but perhaps they have a top player who can only play on this table and is not used to playing on other tables. The could use this player to play only the Garlando elements. They could also have a player who can only play well on Leonhart so if they play a Leonhart team, they would be able to use this player just for the Leonhart elements.
For example with the “6 vs 6” format, the player would play D1/D3, D5 and S1/D7 or D2, D4/D6 and S2/D8.

Coaches need to read carefully the scoresheet to fully understand the format to pick their team.

 

Secondary Table choice

New for 2019!

Each national team must select a table called "Main table".
Teams also have a choice if they would like to select a second table called "Secondary table". Teams do not have to choose a secondary table.

This new option gives teams who do not have one clear main table they feel safe on (a country who regularly hosts tournaments on different ITSF table types such as Great Britain with Garlando and Tornado) the opportunity to use their second table choice against a team who have a clear home table and possibly a big advantage being experts on this particular table (a country whose tournaments are organised on the same ITSF table type and possibly the manufacturing country of their main table such as France with Bonzini).

For the most part, teams will be playing as usual on their main table and on an away table. It is only different in the exceptional circumstance that a team who has only selected a main table plays against another team who have the same main table but have selected a secondary table. In this case, the secondary table will be used.

The use of the secondary table is as follows:

 

 

2 Legs:

The format for the 2 Legs nations cup will be the “Team Warm-Up format” with 4 players and doubles only.
It will be played only on the Tecno table.
