Frequently Asked Questions

How will table tennis improve my health?

As well as being extremely fun to play, table tennis as a sport also has numerous health (both mental and physical) benefits.

  • Improving hand-eye coordination. An intense game of table tennis stimulates mental alertness and concentration and develops mental acuity.

  • It burns calories. Hate going to the gym? Try table tennis instead. It's a fun & easy way to burn calories.

  • It keeps your brain sharp. Renowned physician, psychiatrist and brain imaging expert, Dr Daniel Amen, calls table tennis “the world's best brain sport” because it is highly aerobic, uses both the upper and lower body, and is great for eye hand

  • It improves balance. Staying balanced and being able to quickly change direction is key to being a good table tennis player. The more you play, the more you can improve your sense of balance.

  • It’s a social sport. Social interaction is very important for mental health. In a world so connected through technology, people are feeling more and more disconnected from each other. Table tennis offers you a chance to #UnPlugNPlay, step away from the screen, and bond with the person on the other side of the ping pong table.

  • Improving reflexes. Due to the fast-paced, short-distance nature of the sport, both gross and fine muscle movements are improved.
