Coming soon, the annual ‘Oudjaarsdubbeltoernooi’ [New Year’s Eve Double Tournament] which is organised for members and ex-members of SHOT, but also for members of neighbouring table tennis clubs.
The ‘Oudjaarsdubbeltoernooi’ is a tournament for doubles, but there are very specific rules. These rules are described on our website, but they are written in Dutch, so you may better address for the rules to one of the SHOT-members who have participated in previous tournaments [or you let you simply surprise on that Friday evening]. On the website you will also find photo’s of the tournament in previous years. Anyway, it is a tournament that is organized by tradition on the last ‘available’ Friday of the year, so this year on Friday 29 December.

Wednesday afternoon 23th of August was the Information Market of the General Introduction Days (AID) for the new students of Wageningen University & Research (WUR), at the Arboretum in Wageningen. Shot was hired one of the many stands, as it did last few years. More than 1000 students from all over the world were visiting this market and many of them indeed wanted to be informed about possibilities for table tennis and liked to try playing on the small iPong table with mini-bats. In addition, they could guess the number of pingpong ball in a plastic container: the winner would get a free membership at our club for 3 months. In the morning Johan Frederiks moved all the exhibition materials to the Arboretum with his car, and in the afternoon Sietse, Xu, Farid, Yu and Ric made advertisement for Shot and our new building to several tens of students, from real beginners to real professionals. Thanks to both these Shot volunteers and the beautiful weather is was a very nice and successful advertisement for table tennis.
At the end Yu, Sietse, Farid and Ric, as well as 2 visiting students as â€˜external refereesâ€™ counted and re-counted all the balls in the container: 105. This exact number was not in between the 50 guesses which ranged from only 20 up to 172, but with a guess of 104 the Bachelors student Corine de Winter was closest of all! While Corine informed us not making use of the offer for a 3-months free membership, as she was too busy with other sports, last 2 weeks 5 other students visited our building to play table tennis and test the bar. Perhaps some of them will become a new member â€¦..

Our new clubhouse is located at Haverlanden 92. We celebrate the official opening on Saturday 2 September. Everybody is invited for both the morning and the afternoon program.
It has been established by renovating and expanding an existing gym. The facilities are similar to those in the previous clubhouse. The playing hall now also offers space for 8-10 table tennis tables. The whole has become particularly beautiful thanks to the fruitful and intensive cooperation between the municipality of Wageningen, construction company Van Swaay and SHOT. Shot is now also the owner of this new accommodation.

The rehousing project is in full swing. The construction activities at our new location are progressing as scheduled. At the same time activities are carried out to prepare the terrain around our building for its new purpose.
On Tuesday, April 18th, the demolition of the old building of Diedenoort was started. First, the building will be stripped inside and then in the week of April 24, they start with the demolition of the outside. During the demolition they will spray to prevent dust clouds.
Unlike previous messages, the entrance from the Churchillweg will not be closed. However, on the Churchillweg there will be a warning for the exit of demolition traffic.
