Coronavirus Operational Procedures

In returning to play during the Coronavirus epidemic our prime concern is the safety of all our members and club officers.

To ensure this we will follow the guidance of the Scottish Government, Table Tennis Scotland (TTS) and the requirements for the Village Hall Trustees so as to provide a safe and controlled environment in which we play. The club committee will continually monitor changes to Coronavirus guidance and amend and adapt our procedures as required. The latest Table Tennis Scotland guidance can be found at https://tabletennisscotland.co.uk/covid-19-update-9th-august-2021/

Jonathan Kinna and Peter Elderfield will be the club’s Coronavirus Officers a role described in TTS return to play guidance (https://tabletennisscotland.co.uk/ready-to-return/).

The following operational procedures currently apply and all our players are asked to read and abide by them:

  • No one with symptons of Coronavirus can play – please see link here to NHS Scotland symptom checker https://www.nhsinform.scot/self-help-guides/self-help-guide-coronavirus-covid-19. Neither can anyone who is self-isolating as per current rules in Scotland play
  • There is no longer any ‘bubble’ protocol operating nor covid related limit on session times
  • Doubles and singles is now permissible
  • Sessions do not need to be booked in advance
  • Hand sanitiser will be made available to all players and should be used at the start, during and end of sessions
  • A register of players will be created for each session that will be used for ‘Track and Trace’ if required
  • Face masks are not required to be worn whilst playing but should be worn at all other times – i.e on entry to and exit from the hall.
  • Windows in the hall will be opened to maintain ventilation.
  • Preferably players should bring and use their own bats.
  • At the end of each session players will be asked to wipe clean the tables / nets using cleaning materials supplied by the club
