Club Update – Restart of TT
Its been a while since we had our last session just before Christmas… but hopefully end is in sight with Table Tennis Scotland confirming this week what date we can return to the table.
Table Tennis Scotland has announced that both adults and juniors are allowed to return to play as of Monday April 26th. See TT Scotland announcement below
This means table tennis can take place strictly in accordance with our LEVEL 3 Guidance on an individual booking basis. Please note the bubble system is not allowed and therefore there can be no rotation of partners. Play can take place on multiple tables for example but there can be no changing of partners during the session.
- There is no change to the guidance for under 18s at Levels 0,1,2,3 therefore under 18 sessions can continue with minimal restrictions.
- Please note a Coach can continue to work normally with under 18s but can ONLY offer Adults, a One to One session.
- COACHES who earn part or all of their income from table tennis can continue to travel for work.
- Essential volunteers, parents and officials can travel to enable sessions to take place
- Full TTS update can be found here – https://tabletennisscotland.co.uk/covid-19-update-6th-april-2021/
As you can see we are looking at similar rules to before lockdown, where adults can play 1 person and we will operate a booking system so no change of partners happen.
As you know we have St Peters church hall for sessions from Fri – Mon, and if any mid week evening sessions come available we will be adding that to our weekly programme. We have new facility in Saltcoats “The Training Station” which we can use during the day to early evening during the week. We will be looking at running beginners class and 1-1s there too.
West Kilbride TT are looking at opening and will be confirming when that is in the coming weeks which will be another club back up and running.
Club Dev Officer Chris Main will be sending club update to all active members with few bits of info so keep your eye out for it .. New logo, new classes, Kids TT, AGM minutes, School Packs
