Football and Table Tennis rules and regulations which help maintain the true spirit of the game

Extracts from this document...


´╗┐Liam Wheeler M2- Assess, using appropriate examples, the rules, regulations and scoring systems for one team and one individual sport. Football has its own unique set of rules and regulations which help maintain the true spirit of the game.
