|Hello Table Tennis Enthusiasts,
The past 90 days have been challenging and unprecedented in USA and the entire World! COVID-19 has taken a substantial amount of lives in the most senseless and painful way. The lockdown was mentally, emotionally, physically and financially stressful for all Individuals and Businesses, particularly smaller businesses.
LATTA, like all other businesses endured a big financial hit but we remain RESILIENT AND DETERMINED to move forward! The show must go on, let's pong again! Allow me to proudly announce that LATTA is now OPEN DAILY to the public, to our loyal Club Members and TT friends in all Communities. With that being said, we will try to adhere to COVID-19 safety and social distancing guidelines. Rules are posted within LATTA. The great thing about playing at LATTA is that we are a spacious club, so our tables are already at least 8 feet apart! I chose not to space out our chairs & benches 6 feet apart, so that you all can still place your athletic bags. However, I do encourage you to still maintain your social distance.
While LATTA was closed, we made some club improvements by adding 8 new LED light fixtures and repaired all the bubbly/puffy red floor areas. During the safe-at-home order, I received many calls and texts from my dear table tennis friends asking how LATTA & I were doing and gave their warm wishes. Also, I didn't seek any financial donations, but some people out of the goodness of their heart, donated. Whether big or small, I thought it was a very sincere and generous gesture. Appreciate it & thank you so much! It'll take a while to get back to where LATTA was before, but it’s best to be optimistic and positive. Lastly, thank you to Bowmar Sports/Butterfly for sponsoring LATTA.
