Australia has a problem with the lack of female athletes playing Table Tennis. You may recall in one of our earliest PingPod’s we spoke with Ashleigh Stevenson about this issue.
Well now there’s some good news. England’s Steve Rowe has devised a quite unique solution. It’s called Aerobic Table Tennis.
“I was trying to think of ways to get more females involved in table tennis, so I looked at what females like to do for exercise in general”, said Steve Rowe. “I researched and found out that women like Aerobics and Yoga; I took the idea of Aerobic Table Tennis to our local sports development in Wigan UK, Wigan Sports Development and they have made Aerobic Table Tennis part of the Active Women Project.”
Now Steve is taking the project world wide and is looking for clubs to come on board. If you’d like to get more females involved at your club and think Aerobic Table Tennis might benefit you then register your interest and Steve will be in touch with you.
