Anything on your mind that isn't about RLS/WED? It's nice to realize that there is life beyond this disease and have an opportunity to get to know our online family in a different context.

Let's Talk Table Tennis

Postby TimG » Tue May 23, 2017 4:05 am

I started learning to play table tennis a couple years ago. What a fun sport it is! It's claimed that this is one of the best active sports for seniors like myself to play, engaging both brain and body. I've been taking lessons, which has really improved my game. Any other table tennis players out there?

Lessons, huh? Sounds like fun! But, no, I do not play.

I loved it! My parents had a table. We called it ping pong. But I haven't played in years.

Last I played was at a holiday complex in Malta in 2014.

Yes!! I love table tennis and was playing twice a week until I cracked a pelvic bone back in February. My ultimate PT goal is to be back in the game. I'm 74 and the oldest of the group I play with, but not by much. I think everyone's well over 50. We are competitive but not serious about it, and whoops of laughter are common when we're together.

We just moved into a condo complex that has a table. We haven't tried it, yet....I imagine I will be terrible since I have not played since I was about 7. We have been regularly playing billiards, though.
