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.
