Information about yellow, yellow/red and red cards and suspensions from competition.
The Table Tennis England Sanctions Scheme sets out how players are allocated points when they receive a yellow, yellow/red or red card from an official.
Points are allocated as follows:
1 point: Yellow card and yellow/red card
2 points: Red card (disqualification)
A player is suspended from all competitive play for a period of one month (4 weeks) if they accumulate 5 points in a 12-month period. Thereafter, a player is suspended from all competitive play for a further period of one month (4 weeks) if they accumulate 3 points in a 12-month period following a period of suspension. Points fall off a player’s record after 12 months.
Suspensions are extremely rare – out of around 3,000 nationally licensed players, only a handful are suspended in any given year.
The document below lists players who currently have any points or suspensions on their record. This is intended to help players keep a track of their points. Please note, while every effort is made to keep this published record up to date it is the responsibility of individual players to keep their own record of cards received.
Full details of the Sanctions Scheme can be found in Section 6 of the Table Tennis England Regulations Part A: Regulated Competitions
