Residential Halls, Game Lounges
We mainly wish to promote awareness of table tennis while bringing inspiration to on-campus students (especially freshmen,) signifying a brighter upcoming Lehigh experience.
For more information, please check the sign-up form attached below.
We named this event “Intra-Dorm Contest” because we want to pair participants from the same residence hall to minimize the possibility of cross-contamination. For example, players at Farrington cannot sign up for the event at Brodhead. Furthermore, our event allows only two designated players at a specified time slot, which does not concern the existing indoor policies. Our table tennis contest is more of a self-hosted event formed by whichever two players are competing at a given moment. When Lehigh is fully reopened, we will have a final inter-dorm contest to determine the undisputed Ping Ping Champion across all residence halls.
Players are randomly paired up from the same hall. Each match should take at most 30 minutes, which we will enforce as the signup sheet's time slot duration. A brief warm-up rally is allowed before the actual match. Each match consists of at most 3 games, so the first player to win 2 games wins the match. The current tournament employs an elimination style. Our final match in each dorm will use a first to 3 formats (at most 5 games.) That will give a 45 minutes time slot for the finalists to sign up.
