The Benefits of Table Tennis to people with Long Term Health Conditions

Deb Bullen, Occupational Therapist at Sport for Confidence was interviewed by Teresa Bennett, Head of Development and coach at Brighton Table Tennis Club (BTTC) about the benefits of Table Tennis for people with Long Term Health Conditions. 

Brighton Table Tennis Club prides itself on being a true community club, being far more than somewhere just to play table tennis and a club that is fully inclusive and gives everyone an opportunity to play whatever their background or ability.

Deb came to the club as part of her Occupational Therapy (OT) training in 2019 and began supporting BTTC members in their sessions. Deb said;

“After volunteering at BTTC and seeing how members benefited from playing table tennis, I started a table tennis session at Sport for Confidence. I have seen improvements in client’s coordination, balance, fine and gross motor skills, cognition, overall wellbeing, and of course there is the social element too. I am so pleased we are producing this resource and collaborating with BTTC.“
