Coronavirus for Coaches Update 21st March 2020

 

Coronavirus Advice for Coaches

Following the latest advice from the Government, Table Tennis England has cancelled all sanctioned events on the Table Tennis England calendar with immediate effect until April 30th and have also strongly recommend that local leagues and clubs suspend activity for the foreseeable future.

We acknowledge that the cancellation of domestic competitions and gatherings will impact greatly on the table tennis community, and we are aware that this will be a difficult time for self-employed coaches. However, we are all in uncertain times together and we must put the health and safety of our families and communities first.

We will continue to update our coaches with guidance from Sport England and the Government.

As a coach, if you have concerns please get in touch with us and let us know the following information:

  • Your name
  • Your email
  • How the Coronavirus is impacting or will/could impact your coaching
  • The type of support that could be beneficial
  • The level of concern you currently have (high, medium or low)

Please contact coaching@tabletennisengland.co.uk

We will be looking to circulate useful things that coaches can do and learn about in this difficult time but as a starting point, this is an excellent chance to update your Safeguarding training online with the renewal course that UK Coaching offer. For further information regarding the course please click here.

We hope you all stay safe and well. Please try to check in with fellow coaches and club members and support each other as much as possible, within Government advice, and particularly look out for those who may experience feelings of isolation.

Best wishes,

The Coaching team
