The world as we know it is faced with our most significant threat, with no signs of improvement here in North America, as yet. It is of utmost importance to be aware, take precautions, follow direction provided by our medical experts and government officials, help each other where possible. You have likely received the update from the City, last Fri March 27, indicating they have extended closure of the City facilities including the Rec Complex until May 03 inclusive. The latest information from the City can be viewed at their web site at PICKERING.CA/COVID19 ( https://www.pickering.ca/en/city-hall/covid-19-update.aspx )

This includes but not limited to our club championships, ShinDig tournament, annual banquet (May 02), Chris Doona Award, competitive leagues and House Leagues (singles and doubles), ladder matches, social activities, and other programs.

We will continue to provide these updates with notifications as things hopefully improve and the risk of COVID-19 is declared clear in the near future.

Finally, we want to reiterate the need to take all precautions, stay safe, stay informed, seek immediate help if you are feeling ill with any symptoms. Reach out to anyone in need, with a helping hand and support.
