This is an initiative started by two avid entrepreneurial table tennis players in the West London area at Actonian's Sports Club in Gunnersbury Drive Ealing and very close to Acton Town tube station and very convenient for the M4 motorway.
The objective is to make table tennis available for all who wish to participate, whether for a recreational purpose, casual play, those interested in having coaching, or the player that wishes to have advanced coaching.
Everyone is welcome regardless of age or table tennis skill. Also to be available is a course where a beginner could learn to play the game properly in four weeks. There will also be a facility available for other coaches to bring their player clients along to use the facilities.
NET - Neuro Exercise Therapy
An introduction to a great new natural therapy with ‘no drugs’ for any Alzheimer’s or dementia related condition. There has been some evidence including some studies at Kings College Hospital that physical exercise can stimulate the brain and can be very therapeutic and can be very supportive for sufferers and enjoyable.
Table tennis or some would refer to it as ping pong is this very therapy it is played throughout the world by people of all ages in fact there are people of around 100 years young playing the game and competitively too. It is a great exercise both physically and mentally and it can be played by 4 people together, 2 together or even by one using a robot.. And you can also sit and play too.
NET Table Tennis Centre Ltd are promoting this to care homes, nursing homes up and down the country and to anyone suffering such a condition. Their tables are to be specifically made to allow the ball to stay in play longer and the bats are specifically designed to keep the ball in play longer too maximising the enjoyment. The reason for this is it has been established that the more physical action in the use of ones hands and arms in playing the ball over the net along with the use of the brain the more therapeutic and advantageous it is.
