Hi Ping Pongers,
Come this Saturday at noon to the club and meet your fellow players on our outside patio. Bring some dish or something. We need to develop more community in our table tennis world. Invite some of our former members back to the club. We will have some prizes and an award or two.
James Kahn and the Board
If you see a point is being played by two players in an adjoining table, please wait for that point to be completed before walking by or attempting to claim your table tennis ball from the vicinity. If the players on the adjoining table are merely practicing, it is expected of those players to stop practicing, retrieve the ball, and return it to you, however some of these players may continue their rally even after they have noticed your ball go into their area. In this event please make allowances for a players belief that their rally is worthy of YouTube highlights, and attempt to gain their attention by shouting the words “thank you” loud enough for them to hear and indicate the presence of your ball in their area. If they still do not respond carefully retrieve the ball from the area yourself, all the while shouting the words “excuse me”, as you do.

We have lots of hours available this week. We will be open our normal hours and because we are hosting para training camp at the club from June 8-14, there will be space to play from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.. We are being asked to leave tables out this week to avoid morning set-up. We will verify with BPAC if this is o.k.
Later this month, June 22 at noon, is our pot-luck picnic. Let’s have a big turn-out!
October 26-27 is our Neil Smyth USATT Tournament. We are hoping to attract some top players. Mark your calendars now!
