Abstract:

The research comprised an analysis of an intentional sample of 914 table tennis players competing in various recreational table tennis leagues in SOKAZ (the Association of Recreational Table Tennis Players of Zagreb) during 2006. The competitors played in leagues ranked from 1 to 20 with a minimum of 36 to a maximum of 59 players in each league. Variables and indexes as indicators of the efficacy of an individual in table tennis competitions are defined. We did not find statistically significant differences in indexes of efficiency, derived by summarising several particular indexes, according to the particular league level in the table tennis championship. Yet we did find statistically significant differences in individual variables of a table tennis competitor's efficiency according to the specific league level in the table tennis championship: their relative number is higher in the 'tougher' leagues, and is highest at the 1st to 5th league levels in SOKAZ. We also find statistically significant differences in the 'pure statistical' variables in table tennis competition according to the league level in the table tennis championship: their relative number is higher in 'tougher' leagues, and is highest at the 1st to 5th league levels in SOKAZ.
