Club Captain
– Luke, our previous club captain, has now moved on.

Hi Everyone,

Friday Club Night
– Thanks to Brendan, Chris, Euan, Robbie and Keith for their support on Friday night.
– I hope everyone enjoyed the league ladder.
– Well done to everyone who took part and here are the results below:


– Club nights have been cancelled for 24th Dec, 31st Dec and 7th January 2022.
– All being well the club will return on Friday 14th January 2022.

Club Fees
– As a result of the sports centre closing 3 sessions over festive period.
– I would ask club members to stop payment of club fees for the month of January.
– Understandably a few members have decided not to attend until they feel it is safe to do so.
– If those members could arrange to stop your club fees and advise me when they plan to do so that would be good.
– We appreciate you will support us on your return.

Festive Break
– Have a good break and hopefully we will see everyone when we return in January.

Take care and stay safe.

Thanks for your support,

Peter

EKTTC Coaches Meeting – Wednesday 24th November
– On Wednesday night the club coaches discussed the feedback on our recent club survey.
– The response to the survey was very positive and the coaches appreciate the kind words that were expressed.
– As a result of survey and feedback we have slightly altered the format for future Friday club night sessions which will allow for more game time.

Video/ Photography
– Please note that only club coaches have the consent to video or photograph club members at the club night or any other TT event.
– Under current Safeguarding guidelines the club coaches have to ensure that any video/photos are only taken on club devices.

AMC
– The club has been made aware that Alistair McCoist Complex will now not be available to the club until February 2022.
– This is unfortunate as the club had hoped and had planned to be back at AMC last month.
– I will keep you posted on future developments.

Hi everyone

Friday Club Night
– Along with Keith on Friday night, I worked for the first time since our return with some of our young beginners.
– I was encouraged to see how they are making progress and playing with a smile on their face.
– It would be a challenge for any young person to come into a club environment and participate in a sport you have never thought about.
– This young group get on so well and thanks to the work of Chris, Brendan and Keith are developing their skills.
– At the same time Euan was working with our intermediate group and engaged them with drills and games.
– Another group who thanks to Euan are enjoying the challenges he has been setting them over the past few weeks.

East Kilbride Table Tennis Club Survey
– As a club we are always looking to improve the way we do things.
– If you could take only a few minutes of your time to do our survey that would be great.

Club News – 17th Oct 2021

Hi everyone,

Friday Club Night
– Some players at the club are beginning to show signs that after a couple months of practice it feels like they have never been away.
– While for others frustration can creep in because one particular stroke is not working correctly or our decision making is not what it was in the past.
– We just need to be patient and continue work on what’s going well.
– We can take our negatives or weakness one at a time and work through them.
– The coaches are always available for support.
– We welcomed a new member Paulina and we say goodbye and thanks to younger member Mark Hamilton who gave TT a try but sadly it’s not for him.
– Many thanks to Rae Jack (Inverness TTC) who was in the area visiting and popped in to enjoy our club night.

Thanks
– To Brendan, Euan and Robbie for their support on Friday night.
