Table Tennis BoA - return to playing
Following the Government's statement on 9th July regarding indoor sports activities being able to restart later in the month, we’d like to keep you up to date with where we are.
We have decided to closely follow the guidance provided by Table Tennis England as we are a TTE affiliated club. We are going through their documentation at the moment.
Also, as we play in a Town Council owned building we will need to get their permission to restart and will almost certainly need to provide them with a risk assessment and method statement.
What we do know is that the way we play will be quite different to usual, certainly in the early days of our return. We will need to observe strict physical distancing and rigorous hygiene.
So, we will only be playing singles to start with, using 3 tables; this means that over the course of an evening there will be less playing time and more hanging around. Hopefully, as time goes on this will ease and, eventually, we will return to operating as normal.
We’re not yet setting a date of return as we still have a lot of preparation to do. Rest assured, we will keep you informed of how things are going and a likely re-start date.
Please be kind enough to pass this on to any regulars you know as we don’t have everyone’s email addresses and not everyone looks at the website.
Keith and Richard
