Re: The Elo has landed

Bobby, I know this is a personal question and something that should be saved for later in our relationship, but can I see your algorithm? :oops: What language is it written in? Also, I don't know much about Elo but I know that its goal is to predict the result of a match between two players using th...

Re: Garlando Balls

I ordered the set of 3 from Lifestyle Leisure yesterday after getting clarification from Alex and they arrived this morning!

Even though on the website they say they come loose, mine came in an official Garlando/ITSF blister pack.

Very impressed.

Garlando Accessories

The good news is I've just acquired a Garlando Pro Champion (through rods) so the bad news is you might see me at a tournament some time soon. The table has the black plastic handles (same shape/size as the more conventional Wood/Plastic Garlando handles as per the Master Chamption), so my first que...

Re: The Capital Venue Open ITSF Pro Tour, June 7th-9th

I hope you all have an incredible time at a tournament that looks like the most exciting since I got involved in the UK scene.

I'll be thinking of you as I sun myself on a Dominican Republic beach ;)

Very much hoping to be at the second event of the year.

Good luck all!

Re: Newbie

I forgot to say, I was in the Soak on Bristol Road a couple of weeks ago and the far bumper of the goalie rod had come off meaning the rod kept coming out of the hole. The rods were generally pretty stiff and the playing surface sticky.

Lol at the unintentional double entendres.

Seems like the guys lost out to Germany this morning - not sure of the score though.

Sarah and Ola just beat a Bulgarian team with ease in their first knockout round 5/2, 5/3, 5/3. Sounds simple. Probably wasn't considering their opponents contained the Women's Singles CHAMPION.

Re: Eurosport 2 Coverage Nantes

The men comfortably win their second match, beating Poland 8-2 meaning they're guaranteed to go through the group.

Looks like the battle against Germany tomorrow morning will decide who tops the group.

Come on guys! Keep it up :)
