SALT - PING PONG

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. 

 

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.  We have an informal grading scale as:

"A"    - being very competent in handling the ball, are among the best players of this SALT pingpong group

"B+"  - being reasonably competent in keeping the ball in play and are among the top  half of the intermediate skill level

           sector of this group 

"B-"    - being reasonably confident in keeping the ball in play but are among the lower half of the intermediate skill level

           sector of this group

"C"    - defines those whose skill level does not qualify them in the A and B gradings.

 

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 – 1pm.
