Again no table tennis.

I am doing more to prepare the community centre Saturday afternoons for life post Covid-19 and Retriever.

Still no table tennis.

I have put out an email to the 3 regulars at the community centre table tennis which details what it means to run it. They are thinking of being a triumvirate in doing so.

In news unrelated to Covid-19 I am in the process of being made redundant in my day job.

More time for TT when this Covid-19 stuff is over?

Again no table tennis.

Am "negotiating" the terms of my redundancy with someone who is not authorised to negotiate. Fun times.

Still no table tennis.

I did get a call from the guy who runs the club I play at. He has played at a mutual friend's house a couple of times.

Still attempting to negotiate my redundancy from my day job. 3 weeks till R day.

No table tennis.

Local council talking about opening venues soon. Still constrained by community sport not restarting until 1 July.

Wrangling over redundancy payments being recognised in new financial year as may retire.

No table tennis again.

The local club is opening up tonight, but I am in 2 minds about going.

On the one hand I am over 60 so in that group, but reasonably fit.

On the other hand I have been suffering more asthma and have a stiff knee from falling on it several weeks ago.

On the gripping hand I would probably enjoy it immensely.

We are also having a meeting later this week about the local comp etc.

No table tennis, at least partly through choice. Club was open on Monday night but decided not to go. Maybe Thursday night or next Monday.

Local committee meeting was on last Thursday. Didn't go, but have gotten the minutes. Looks like local comp restarts provisionally in mid July, although there is another committee meeting before then.

Played at the club last night. Yeehaa! Wasn't as rusty as I had feared I would be. However due to an accident a couple of months ago my right knee has become very stiff and feels as if it may become unstable when I hunker down properly. It was good to play again. I had to blow dust off the shoes I wear for tt prior to putting them on at home. No mold or mildew on the rubbers fortunately. I beat who I normally beat, with a win over AF who usually beats me. I was a little less rusty than him, although I think he played last week.
