We all need something that's good for us and Table Tennis truly is:
Renowned physician, psychiatrist and brain imaging expert, Dr Daniel Amen, says:
'You still may think that calling table tennis a sport is silly, but I think it is the best brain sport ever. It is highly aerobic, uses both the upper and lower body, is great for eye hand coordination and reflexes, and causes you to use many different areas of the brain at once as you are tracking the ball, planning shots and strategies, and figuring out spins. It is like aerobic chess. Plus, table tennis causes very few head injuries. Table tennis is the second most popular organised sport in the world. What is even more impressive is that it is the youngest of the world’s major sports. At the competitive level, players hit the ball in excess of 90 miles per hour across the table!'
Lostwithiel Table Tennis Club welcomes all people who want to come and play
Our focus is on enjoyment and not necessarily competition, although we do have good challenging matches amongst the mix and lots of spirited rallies!
We have recently bought two top quality tables - making three in all and there are bats and balls a plenty to borrow.
We charge £2 a session
The aims and objectives of the club are to offer table tennis as a social activity improving health and well being. Our ambition is to promote the club within the community, to provide activities in a way that is fair to everyone and ensure a duty of care to all members and visitors to the club.
