Covid Club Requirements (24th Dec)

  • Masks are becoming mandatory in NSW indoor settings from midnight tonight (Thursday December 23).  For AWTTA, players are once again expected to wear masks inside, while not playing, effective from Friday’s Keenagers session..
  • QR Check-in will soon be mandatory for hospitality and retail settings. The Committee has determined that AWTTA will re-introduce this, starting with the Keenagers session on Friday December 24.
  • Social Distancing and Density Limits are to be changed to 1 person per 2 square metres for hospitality settings on Monday December 27. Our morning tea area is akin to a hospitality setting, so we will now have this density limit for the kitchen and dining area, starting from Friday December 24 (if it is worth introducing on December 27, it’s even safer to start on December 24!). Keenagers will have to stagger their morning tea times, rather than all together at the one time.
  • Cleaning Tables will continue regardless of COVID restrictions, as it is always a good practice to have clean table. The committee is thankful for the members’ diligence with the table cleaning.
  • Doubles permitted, but individuals may decide that they are more comfortable playing singles and will not be forced to play doubles at Keenager sessions.
  • Personal Hygiene is still paramount. Hand sanitiser will be available. A cleaning solution for cleaning Table Tennis balls will be available near the ball supply.
  • Wellness: Please do not attend if feeling unwell.
  • Exposure: If you know that you have been at a known exposure site during the time of exposure, please do not attend until you have been PCR tested and returned a negative result.
  • COVID Positive: If you return a positive result, please inform me immediately, so that appropriate action can be taken. Phone 0400 533 741 or email President@awtta.org.au

21 April 2021 marks the 50 year anniversary of the ‘Australian Ping Pong Diplomacy Tour’, where a group of five Australians travelled to China for competitions, training and cultural exchange. The Australian team comprised:

  • Noel Shorter (NSW) – Coach
  • Paul Pinkewich (NSW) – Player
  • Steve Knapp (NSW/VIC) – Player
  • Ann Middleton (née McMahon) (SA/NSW) – Player
  • Dr. John Jackson (SA) – President and Team Manager

The Tour played an important role in China opening their borders to the western world and was a precursor to official diplomatic relations being established between Australia and China. Noel, Paul and Steve, as the three surviving team members, reunited in Sydney to reminisce and celebrate their historic Tour.
