Table tennis player wants access to tables
I am writing on behalf of myself and the table tennis group. Recently the board of directors at the Valley Senior Center arbitrarily removed the group and relocated them elsewhere.
I moved here from Reno/Sparks, Nev., five years ago and have been thrilled to have access to the Valley Senior Center and the opportunity to play table tennis. It has become the center of my social life, exercise and bonding experience.
The group is comprised of about 20 people. I have been, for the most part, the only woman player. The men are gracious, kind, and loving. I have been playing for the past four years and my health and ability to play have improved considerably.
We haven’t had problems with management until recently. I do not know how the difficulty arose, but we have summarily been removed from the senior center. I am heart broken, and feel as though there has been a death in the family. My social contacts have been destroyed.
I am writing this letter in the hope that the situation can be resolved and that our two tables can be restored. I am asking for help on behalf of the group. The senior center is a first-class operation and I am proud to be a member. The tennis group has bonded and we feel deeply connected to one another.
I submit this letter in the sincere hope that the problem, whatever it is, can be resolved.
