The Goulburn Table Tennis Club will set down its paddles, following Scott Morrison's announcement that all indoor sporting venues must close their doors for the time being.
This measure was announced on Sunday in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Club treasurer, Nicola Fraser, described the closure as "disappointing", but added the committee and club members understood the precautions were necessary.
"We all have to do our bit to keep everybody safe," she said.
"Everybody's got to help manage it and if that's the direction it's come we've got to abide by it.
"If that's the direction that's been given to us, that's the sacrifice we've got to make."
The club is another local sport to have its season delayed by the coronavirus, and Fraser hoped the closure would not impact their players too heavily.
"A lot of people play two or three times a week," she said.
"It's a huge part of their sporting fitness and their mental health manageability.
"A lot of our senior members, it's a good active sport for them to be involved in without being overtaxing. It's impacting everybody's sporting regimes, to take any sporting events out of people's lives is a big factor.
"It's a void, when something they love doing is taken out of their lives it's a hard thing to reconcile."
Following the prime minister's announcement on Sunday, Table Tennis NSW confirmed that all local clubs are to close indefinitely. Shortly afterwards ,Table Tennis Australia released a statement promising to keep its members updated of any developments.
"TTA is acutely aware that COVID-19 continues to cause concern and uncertainty amongst the table tennis community and we will continue to provide regular correspondence to assist all stakeholders with their decision making," the organisation said.
Though most sports across the country have specified May as a possible starting point for the 2020 season, no table tennis associations have identified similar dates.
"Table Tennis NSW has cancelled all of their events for March at this stage," Fraser said. "I'd guess we're looking at a [delay of a] couple of months at least."
Fraser particularly feels for a number of the junior players who had recently started with the club and had been enjoying their introduction to the sport.
"We've got quite a lot of juniors members coming through who were just starting to get involved in table tennis," she said.
"Anything we can do to get juniors involved in active sport is a great thing to be doing."
