Building work commencing next month at the school will mean that neither the gym nor the hall will be able to be used for table tennis for 3 Thursdays. This in turn has meant a considerable revision of bookings for matches etc, detailed as follows:
Feb 05 2 matches scheduled - no change
Feb 12 school not available - 3 scheduled matches to be moved to Mar 19
Feb 19 school not available - no matches scheduled, so no problem(!)
Feb 26 school not available - 3 scheduled matches to be moved to Mar 26
Mar 05 3 scheduled matches - no change
Mar 12 3 scheduled matches - no change
Mar 19 3 rescheduled matches (from Feb 12)
Mar 26 3 rescheduled matches (from Feb 26)
Apr 02 Club Tournament (moved from original date of Mar 26)
1 Team Captains (both Home and Away) have already been notified and will be be checking availability of players for the matches that have been moved.
2 The rescheduling has used up both the 'free' weeks that the League provides for the playing of rearranged matches. Any further postponements of home matches will cause a problem, a solution to which is not obvious at the moment.
3 There will still be 1 table available for practice during the weeks when we can use the gym. I am reluctant to have 4 matches played on the same evening as that does restrict court space for all concerned.
4 To repeat - there will be no table tennis at the school on Feb 12, 19 and 26.
I hope the above is clear. I will of course keep you posted on any developments concerning these rearrangements.
