Phased Return

Following the successful re-opening of indoor sports facilities last Saturday 25 July, Table Tennis England is moving though the stages to return to competitive table tennis.

See Table Tennis England Coronavirus update.

As table tennis England moves towards stage 3 (see above link), on a local level things are moving at a slower pace. Full local league table tennis will not resume this year, some leagues are contemplating  2×2 short format, however the club are working hard behind the scenes to make sure preparation for return to club practice sessions is thorough and in line with all the guidelines and recommendations.

A big thank you to club members paying subscription fees throughout the lock down, the re investment of these funds is already taking place; as announced by email last week a number of top class new tables are being delivered to the club this week. All monies will obviously go into new equipment, so there is a lot to look forward to as the club returns to normal. Many thanks to Thornton’s Table Tennis, a long term friend of the club, who have given us an excellent deal on these (and will give members a very competitive discount for orders placed through the club).

The diagram below illustrates our proposed hall set up plans for the restart at “Table Tennis England stage 2 guidelines”.

Stage 2 – returning to club activity.

The set up will be put up and taken down each session by a small team of prearranged coaches and organisers. Bookings will be made via the new Club Spark system.
