New players welcome
TOPSPINNING their way to laughter and fun, a dedicated group of Rockingham table tennis players are keen to welcome some good ‘backhanders’ to their fold.
No, it’s not a promotion of some obscure discipline – rather, a pitch for more players.
The group holds games at the City of Rockingham’s Autumn Centre – a social hub for those over 50.
Group member Anne Hobson said there were games held most days, including new days Tuesday and Wednesday.
“We welcome all people – there are no levels or skills required,” she said.
“It is mainly just for fun and just for laughs.”
Despite the focus on fun she said there was a method to ping pong madness.
“At our age certain sports and activities are the best – table tennis is great for strengthening balance and hand-eye co-ordination,” she said.
The mixed group has female and male players, and a minimal yearly membership fee to the centre is all that is required to join. The Tuesday and Wednesday groups have games in the main hall of the centre between 1pm and 4pm.
