Iulia said, “As an international table tennis player myself,I think this is a great idea supporting women in playing table tennis. A beautiful sport but also a good way to stay in shape. It’s not only a way to relax after spending so many hours sited at the office or at school but also can improve your physical and psychological condition!! i think is very important to encourage all people to enjoy the benefits of table tennis as leisure.
Keep up with the good work!!

The sessions include yoga and table tennis to help you burn caleroies. Having played table tennis for 12 years, I can guarantee that table tennis helps you to stay super-fit and tones your body with specific table tennis exercises. It can also challenge your mind – the spin of the ball is what makes table tennis unique! Ask the coach about how “spin” works in table tennis, and try a few exercises!”

William Henzell Australia Men’s Number 1

William said, “When I first saw the concept I thought ‘What a great initiative. Aerobic table tennis has really thought about making table tennis more fun for girls.’ Girls have usually had to play table tennis on boys’ terms with less focus on social interaction and group activities. This is a great step in the right direction for attracting more girls so keep up the good work.”

Kim Gilbert Olympic Festival Gold Medalist

Kim said ” Aerobic Table Tennis has hit the nail on the head on how to build a healthy body and mind! I can’t think of a better way to have such a wide variety of people doing something together both socially and physically with so many other benefits. While you’re having fun you will also be toning your muscles, improving your stamina, increasing your blood and cerebral flow, improving your balance and coordination skills, creating better flexibility, and learning a new sport from its’ masters. The best part is that at the end of a session, you have somehow had the most cardiovascular workout imaginable, without even knowing it…and maybe even made a new friend! I highly recommend this activity for ANYONE!!
