TABLE TENNIS CLUB
The Table Tennis Club meets to play on 7 tables Monday and Friday from 12:30 pm to 3 pm, At all other times you do not need to be a member to use the tables. On Saturday from noon to 3 pm. 4 tales are available. On all other days and times, 2 tables are always available in the small table tennis room.
At the time of this writing (early April), KPIT requires playing singles only due to Covid-19 social distancing requirements. When you are physically playing a game at a table, you may remove your mask. You must wear a mask at all other times both in the rooms where table tennis is played and throughout the KPIT Clubhouse.
Please wash or sanitize your ball and your hands before playing and also after playing. For those who do not have their own paddle or ball, the front desk has a few paddles and balls which can be loaned to you if you leave your government ID as security. Each front desk paddle has an ID number. Paddles with a 2 digit ID number are more powerful paddles than those paddles with a single digit ID number. Players with the least experience will have more ability to control the ball by using a paddle with a single digit ID number. You should always play wearing sneakers – (tennis shoes or walking shoes) with good ankle support. And please do not play if you do not feel well.
Please if you have not exercised much over the Covid-19 time off, PLEASE START GENTLY. At home on Bluestream channel 901 or in KPIT exercise groups you can learn various degrees of movement, balance, stretching, and other exercise that will help you to play table tennis more safely and more effectively.
