Table Tennis

Table tennis (also known as Ping Pong) has a long list of incredible health benefits!


The low impact nature of the sport stimulates many areas of the brain simultaneously, improving coordination, reflexes and balance - as well as helping to burn energy and develop mental sharpness.


Table Tennis is one of the most popular indoor sports worldwide. It is a fast-paced game that requires quick reflexes, hand-eye coordination, and strategic thinking. While table tennis is enjoyed by millions of people around the world, some countries have emerged as powerhouses in the sport!

Table Tennis Rules


The aim of the game is simple; hit the ball over the net onto your opponent’s side. The ball should bounce once on the opponent’s side of the table. A point is won by you if your opponent is unable to return the ball or if they hit the ball before it bounces on their side of the table (unless the ball has already cleared the table).
