THE HEALTH BENEFITS OF TABLE TENNIS

Table Tennis are common in schools, youth clubs, health centres and even work places. Table tennis has a long list of incredible health benefits that very few people are aware of. The sport continues to grow year on year and is one of the few sports that anyone from any age can play with ease and risk free. The low-impact sport of table tennis stimulates many areas of the brain simultaneously and offers a huge range of mental benefits even for patients who suffer from Alzheimers and dementia. We have been intrigued by the benefits of table tennis for a while here at Home Leisure Direct and so we decided to create this easy-to-follow infographic for your convenience. If you like this infographic please give us a like and spread the word. The more people we get to realise the benefits of the sport the more people we can get to play. The aim is to carry on our schools program for table tennis and hopefully implement them into many more schools and youth clubs over the next year. Comment below on your favourite table tennis health benefit!

 

Thanks to Home Leisure Direct for creating this awesome infographic

AGE is no barrier in table tennis, as 82-year-old Gillian Hutchinson is keen to show

The Padstow Heights resident keeps her body and mind fit by playing table tennis recreationally and competitively. In fact, Hutchinson only recently returned from the World Veteran Table Tennis Championships in Spain last month. Players from around the world competed in 17,000 matches.
 
Age divisions ranged from over-40 to over-9O and players came from a range of cultural backgrounds. Despite the popular perception that Asia dominates the sport, Hutchinson said that wasn't necessarily the case. "The Swedes, the English play a lot, the Germans play a lot. They play a lot in Europe," she said; "There were 278 Japanese players, of whom 44 were under 60, so just imagine how many were in the older age groups."
 
There were many benefits for older players, she said. "Somebody said to me 'you ought to tell the Minister for Ageing how good table tennis is because it keeps us healthy so they don't have to spend so much money on keeping us healthy'," Hutchinson said.  
 
A fall in August and an operation in January wasn't enough to stop her going to Spain. The former schoolteacher plans to keep playing and will work towards the next championships in Las Vegas.
