Table Tennis England is proud to support We Are Undefeatable, the national campaign aiming to inspire and support people with long term health conditions to build physical activity into their lives, in a way that their condition allows – have a little knock with a friend on difficult days, or smash it on your good days!

The campaign is inspired by, and features, the real-life experiences of people with long term health conditions, such as depression, dementia, arthiritis, heart disease or type 2 diabetes, getting active in a way they works for them, despite the ups, downs and unpredictability of their condition. People with one or more health condition are twice as likely to be inactive than those without. At present 44.8% of people with health conditions are considered ‘active’.

Led by 15 of the major health and social care charities (Richmond Group of Chairities), We Are Undefeatable is backed by expertise, insight and significant National Lottery funding from Sport England.
