At PTT we aim to always promote the genuine grassroots of the sport. To achieve this sustainably, it is necessary to regularly remove the stronger players from the social divisions. But we don’t just remove them – we create a whole new platform for them. The Inter-Venue League is where the best players from each venue compete weekly both as individuals and as a team.
Only the top-ranked players based on the level-rankings qualify to represent their venue in home and away matches, and the rivalry is fierce! Teams consist of three players each, which means there are nine singles games per match, as well as one doubles match.
