We have teamed up with Merton TTC to create a new Ping! Play On Opportunity to provide patients recovering from heart disease in the Poole, Bournemouth and Christchurch areas, the opportunity to take up Table Tennis as a social and gentle activity sport, to supplement their regular cardio fitness regime.

The Objectives for the sessions are to:


1.To provide one hours gentle ping pong a week, for the patient and their “gym buddy”
2.To provide appropriate help in learning the sport [if needed] 3.To provide a safe, accessible location, and to provide safe table tennis equipment
4.To provide a facility with first aid box, toilets, refreshments and a relaxing area
5.To run the activity according to TTE guidelines
6.To have access to an in house defibrillator
7.To have the activity eventually self-funding at a reasonable costs to the participants

The weekly sessions commence on Tuesday 4th October 9:30am at Merton Table Tennis Club, St James Institute Bournemouth, BH5 2AR and the first 6 weeks are FREE to attend.
