I do hope you all had a good Xmas which this year was different for all of us.
We were scheduled to reopen the junior section on Monday 4th. January. Sadly our plans have had to change. As you will know the whole of Leics. has been placed in tier 4, which prevents us from reopening for the time being. This is because we come under the same category as gymnasium activities. I will keep in touch our governing body, Table Tennis England, who in keeping with government rulings will advise when we can resume activities.
All my contact details are on our web site, winstanley wizards table tennisclub..., do please get in touch with me if you have any questions.
In the meantime, on behalf of our Committee and all of those who help out,I wish you all A Happy and safe New Year,
With best wishes,

SADLY IN ACCORDANCE WITH GOVERNMENT RULES WE HAVE BEEN FORCED ONCE AGAIN TO SUSPEND ALL CLUB SESSIONS FOR THE TIME BEING. AFTER RE-OPENING WE MADE A VERY GOOD START AND BECAME VERY BUSY. WE WERE ABLE TO FOLLOW TABLE TENNIS ENGLAND RECOMMENDATIONS TAKING ALL POSSIBLE PRECAUTIONS TO KEEP EVERYONE AS SAFE AS POSSIBLE.
I WILL KEEP YOU ALL INFORMED, SO PLEASE WATCH THIS PAGE.
IN THE MEANTIME STAY SAFE,

Little over a week ago, even in these troubled times, without any league activity, The Wizards and Fleckney Club put our heads together and raised four teams of varying standard for a friendly match. Three were played at The Winstanley School and one at Fleckney. Although it gave everyone the opportunity to once again "flex their muscles", it produced a cavalier atmosphere. Fleckney took two matches 9-0 and 7-2 with Wizards taking the other two 8-1 and 9-0, so honours were even. Incidentally one of the Wizard teams consisted of brothers Kalan and Kai and on this occasion they were joined for the first time by Dad Hemant who won two games. No doubt benefitting by a spot of coaching, which I am sure the boys enjoyed, they won 8-1.
Great evening, well done everyone.

I ATTACH RESULTS FOR THE JANUARY SESSION. CONGRATULATIONS TO THE FOLLOWING :

Both A and E teams were runners up. These are great results-well done everyone.There will always be some who are not as successful, this is very much down to experience and some divisions are tougher than others. Just keep practicing.
The final session is on Saturday 8th. Febuary - good luck.

It was only a year ago that Dan qualified as a Level one Table Tennis Coach. Since then his interest in coaching, especially our juniors has developed with his maturity. After some thought I had no hesitation in suggesting to Dan that he attended a level two course. Dan jumped at the opportunity and I immediately found funding and secured the course knowing that he would be the youngest.. Dan approached the course as I expected with determination and enthusiasm. He was the youngest and duly qualified . From what I have learnt at 18, he is probably the youngest level two in the country.
From the entire club,
Many congratulation Dan.

MAGIC LITTLE GRANTS
This fund is managed through "Local Giving" in partnership with The Postcode Community Trust.
We applied for £500 which is the maximum awarded by this fund.We were introduced to the trust by Annette Kendrick of Leicestershire and Rutland Sport.
Some of our table tennis tables are ageing and this gave us the opportunity to replace one and to purchase a small supply of table surround barriers. The project has been completed very swiftly and we now have the equipment which is in full use. The club is very grateful to the trust and we look forward to submitting a further bid in the future.
COMMUNITY FOUNDATION LEICS. AND RUTLAND.
As we have become more successful so overheads and maintaining equipment becomes a greater challenge. So we are very grateful to the Foundation for being part of our growth by providing a grant of £800. These funds were used to cover our team registration fees, we have sven junior teams and five adult teams.We were also able to increase our supply of table barrier surrounds and fund a Table Tennis coaching qualification for one of our members. All was made easier due to the friendly and helpful staff. Sincere thanks from all our "Wizards"
