Table Tennis There are two Table Tennis groups.
Table Tennis 1 Meetings: Every Tuesday from 9.40 to 11.40 am. Venue:  Sydenham Community Centre Group Leader: Christine Telephone: 01278 451804
Table Tennis 2 Meetings: Every Friday from 9.40 to 11.40am. Venue:  Bridgwater YMCA Group Leader: Beatrice Telephone: 01278 684757
Tuesday Table Tennis has three tables. You    need    good    eye    and    hand    co-ordination    with reasonable mobility to move around the table. We   cannot   offer   tuition,   but   if   you   have   played   years ago   it   is   probable   that   it   would   quickly   come   back   to you. There   is   no   ‘official’   break   during   the   two   hours,   you can   take   a   drink   between   games   or   when   you   sit   out   a game   either   through   choice   or   necessity   (if   we   have more than twelve members turn up). We   take   the   game   seriously   and   play   by   the   rules, each   pair   doing   their   best   to   win   but   we   laugh   at   our mistakes. There is often a lot of laughter!!!! Christine   
The Friday group provides exercise, enjoyment and social contact.  No previous experience of the game is necessary but reasonable mobility helps as does being able to have a laugh!  There is no tuition as such, but you learn as you go along with the other members being happy to help or give advice.  Bring your own drinks/refreshments.  There is a charge payable per session to cover the hire of the venue.  Beatrice Note:  In all cases before joining a group for the first time please telephone the group leader.
