Following the latest Government announcement giving details of the roadmap out of lockdown; here is an outline of how these measures will effect outdoor public table tennis tables and Ping Pong Parlours and other indoor settings.
Please note these dates, are the earliest these steps will come into effect, and will be assessed each time by the Government against the ‘four tests’.
Currently: while you may find some public outdoor tables are still accessible, you should not play on them.
No earlier than 29th March:
Play on outdoor tables and organised outdoor sport permitted for bubbles of six adults or two households, or groups of 15 children.
INDOOR TABLES & PING PONG PARLOURS
Currently: Ping Pong Parlours and other indoor venues with tables are closed.
No earlier than 17th May:
Table tennis in Ping Pong Parlours* and other indoor venues to re-start for adults in bubbles of up to six people, or from two households.
*Sadly not all Ping Pong Parlours will re-open from this date, but we are working with our shopping centre partners to get as many operating as soon as possible.
No earlier than 21st June:
All legal limits on social contact will be removed, guidance will be published on how to best reduce the risk of transmission and protect ourselves and loved ones.
