This Interest Group started in October 2021, with the sponsorship from the Managing Director of Copytron Table Tennis Club to allow SALT Fellowship to use their facilities free-of-charge. There are many health benefits of playing ping pong for seniors, such as, it improves hand-eye coordination, keeps reflexes sharp, stimulates the brain and burns calories. It is a low-injury risk sports and provides opportunities for social interaction. This is also used as an exercise therapy for our Parkinson fighters to encourage them to be active.
Our group of ping pong players possess different proficiency levels, from beginners to experts. For the latter, they will volunteer to coach the rest of the group. You do not need to know how to play, just an interest to try out ping pong. We can even loan you a bat if you don’t have one. Come join us!
Twice weekly sessions are on Tuesdays and Thursdays, 10am – 12noon.
