Table Tennis is a sport that’s loved and played by over 300 million people across the globe! From family get togethers to competitive tournaments, it’s enjoyed by people of all ages and has become a sport that’s accessible and fun. 
So why is Table Tennis the right sport for you?
 
1. Table Tennis is a great way to bond with your family, friends and get communities together 
Table Tennis is a sport that brings people together. Whether it is a family reunion or just a lazy Sunday, multiple generations can enjoy a game together. Table Tennis has no age or gender barriers and isn’t a sport that relies of physical strength making it the perfect setup for true family fun! A sure shot to pull away your loved ones from gadgets and technology and find some good bonding time to strengthen relationships and recharge minds.
You can have the whole family around the table, sharing memorable and engaging experiences. 
 
 
2. Table Tennis is the life of a party
No game night or barbecue is complete without a few rounds of table tennis! A friendly match (or two) played individually or in teams, with people of all ages can guarantee hours of fun & can give you chance to explore your skills!
 

 
3. Health & Fitness
Table Tennis keeps you on your toes and burns those stubborn calories while you have fun! Playing Table Tennis just a few days a week can increase your fitness as well as your coordination! 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 Alzheimer’s and dementia. While standard tennis requires a lot of running around, table tennis does not require the same level of athleticism. It can improve your reaction speed and does work up a sweat when played at a fast tempo.

4. Easy on the joints
Table Tennis is one of the best sports for older athletes as it’s easier on your joints as opposed to more demanding sports which is why you will see a lot of 60-year-olds comfortably competing with teenagers in clubs without straining themselves! This is one of the main reasons that Table Tennis Players enjoy longevity in the sport! It is truly a SPORT FOR LIFE!
 
 
5. You can play anytime, anywhere!
Table Tennis isn’t a seasonal sport that stops during rains or snow. Tables can be placed both indoors and outdoors depending on the weather and time of day! All you need is a table, a few paddles, a pack of balls and a healthy dose of competitive spirit.
