    Fellow Ping Pongers,

    Yesterday, on a beautiful summer afternoon, 12 of us got together at Andrew Pendrill's backyard to play some ping pong, enjoy good food and drinks, and catch up on a year's worth of news. It was indeed an pleasant experience. Yes, we were all a bit rusty from not using the ping pong arm for a while but the rust fell off fast as the old game came back fast. 

    The weather cooperated nicely and the wind stayed calm during the games. With folks chatting up and mingling, it almost felt "normal" once again. What a relief!

    I am putting a few photos on the ping pong web page so go check them out. 

    We might do some informal play during the summer and hopefully, return to weekly play at the community center in September. For those interested in informal play, send me an email. 

    Happy summering!

    After an unexpected dry spell last year we are ready to play ping pong again. Come enjoy an evening of fun playing, eating and relaxing in the sun outdoors with other ping pong enthusiasts. All skill levels are welcome.

    June 17th at 5 PM at Andrew Pendrill's (new member this year) home in Harwichport. He has a good size backyard and play will be outdoors. 

    Please respond to me at If you would like to help out let me know that too. Thanks. 


    PS Harwich Community Center is still not allowing us to play but they expect to put the tables back in sometime in September. I will keep you informed.

    I hope you and your families are all healthy and safe. These are trying times for sure and none of us have seen anything like this in our lives. But it does give us all a chance to reflect on what's important in life. Family, friends and community were always important but now they take on a new meaning. I for one am grateful for all we have in this regard. Thank you all for being part of that. 

    Given that all activities are on hold and no one really knows how long we have to wait for this scourge to pass, I thought you might enjoy watching last year's ping pong championship that took place in London. It is an incredible display of speed, agility, style and strategy. Notice how the Chinese player holds his racquet compared to the English player. Notice how their styles are totally different but powerful in their own way. Notice how they serve and the round arm motion for both forehand and backhand. So much to learn. View it on full screen, if possible. Enjoy!

    All the best to you and your families...
