Table Tennis – Keenagers
Table tennis is a fun game and it’s easy to pick up.  Keen-Agers provides an opportunity for people over 50 to play social (recreational) table tennis in a relaxed and friendly environment.

New players are always welcome and everyone improves quickly – especially with encouragement and a little coaching from new friends.  Most games are doubles, which is very social and lots of fun – with time-out for a courtside ‘cuppa’ and chat of course!
Keen-Agers is not about competition and you will play people with varying ability and skills.  For the serious participant looking for a more competitive environment, please contact your local Table Tennis Club about playing competition table tennis.  COTA Vic can help you find your local club – Telephone 1300 13 50 90 or visit Table Tennis Victoria’s website.
