Saga Magazine informed us that a documentary called PING PONG has been made about the world's oldest table tennis players. It features eight of the 2,000 players including an 89 year old champion. The producer of the film is quoted as saying "Younger players slam the ball, but the older ones play a brilliant long game with lots of spin. They are very canny." We too have some 80 year olds who surprise us at times!

Here in Great Glen, Table Tennis continues to be popular with our age group and we had a short waiting list. We are fortunate to be able to hire the venue on Monday mornings. Playing doubles, we normally have two tables, so everyone has a chance to take a breath, have a chat and a coffee.

Equipment
We have two of our own tables (in storage) but you will need to bring bat and balls.
