Dear Members, Colleagues and Friends,
This week we await two important announcements from Government (Nicola Sturgeon tomorrow and Boris Johnson on Sunday) regarding exit strategies from the current lockdown.
Yesterday TTS took part in a conference call which included the Sports Minister in Scotland, Joe Fitzpatrick and sportscotland Chief Executive, Stewart Harris. Both were at pains again to stress that sport would not be returning to normal “any time soon”. Sportscotland has been charged by government to work with Scottish Governing Bodies in the coming weeks and months to work up plans for a phased return to some form of activity. We will keep you fully informed of these developments.
While we wait for more specific guidance I know that many of you are enjoying discussing what table tennis might look like post lockdown: the document below is published courtesy of our colleagues in the DTTB, the German Table Tennis Federation and will undoubtedly provide you with food for thought. This piece was posted on the DTTB website on 21 April. I hope you find it an interesting read.
Let us know your thoughts and share your ideas with members. We are keen to hear from you!
Stay safe, stay healthy and stay at home for just a little longer.
