Table tennis (sometimes known as ping pong) truly is a game for everyone. With straightforward rules, simple equipment and a fast pace, it’s a game that anybody can get stuck into.
You do not need to be strong, tall or able to run a mile to play table tennis. In fact, anybody can be good at this game, all it takes is a little practice. Luckily, our coaches are trained to help every child develop at their own pace, focusing on improvement more than competition. Coaching in this way, we’ve found that children enjoy themselves much more and show greater improvements in the long run.
We’re officially partnered with Table Tennis England to help us bring the game to more children than ever, across the UK. One of the reasons we’re so proud to be partnered with Table Tennis England is that they share the same passion for fun and inclusivity that we do. Table Tennis England want every child to come and try their hand at this great game, whoever they are.
TT Kidz is an 8-week programme, put together by Table Tennis England and delivered by our highly trained coaches. As an introductory course aimed at 7-11 year olds, it’s accessible and inclusive, with a full progress and awards system to track their improvement. Pupils will improve their co-ordination and table tennis skills whilst making friends and having fun along the way.
When held in the morning, TT Kidz is a great way to get kids alert and awake for the day, without tiring them out. Sessions can also be held immediately after school, as pupils don’t even need to change into their PE kit to play. It’s a great game to involve all pupils, including those who aren’t as engaged with other games and sports.
