Hi everyone,

I hope you have all managed to come through these difficult times. At long last it seems that we can look forward to playing table tennis again.

Table Tennis England have issued their initial guidelines and it would appear that the under 18’s can resume in a bubble of 15 no earlier than 12th April. So I will be investigating the possibility of restarting the Thursday Junior coaching from Thursday 15th April.

For Adults the return to play is given as no earlier than 17th May, so that is a longer wait for us to get back to our Monday and Friday practice sessions. This will be in bubbles of 6 or players from two households.

As I have said this is TTE’s initial interpretation of the government guidelines and they might well be lobbying for us to start earlier, as usual it is a case of wait and see. As things progress I will keep you informed of any changes that come to light.

So stay safe, will be in touch.

Best regards,

Colin French
