Table Tennis Club
At after-school club table tennis club we endeavour to have fun and improve hand/eye co-ordination. We demonstrate skills such as balancing the ball on the bat, bouncing the ball on the bat and knocking the ball back and forth over the net. We play round the table where the pupils hit the ball and run round the table. We also learn to put on and take off the nets and those who are able to, help to put up and take down the tables. The aim is to learn whilst having fun.

We start with a warm up, play fun movement games, learn routines to a mix of music, develop our creativity by exploring movement tasks, and there's also time to showcase your own dances if you wish. We finish the session with a cool down, working on stretching out the body, relaxing the mind and taking time to chill out.
