In 2 days time there will be a CCA Open House where the secondary 1 students can check out any CCA. How can I get more people to join table tennis?

Hi Jasper,

I think the main thing is to promote the benefits of the game.  Firstly that it is a fun game that anyone can play at some level.  You are also able to progress to any level and when you get into it the game becomes very challenging.

It also has great physical and mental health benefits.

Have a table available for them to see and try.  Once you try it you can't stop!

And this Friday the students will have to do a sports tryout, there is badminton, softball, basketball, football and of course table tennis. So I am thinking if I show the students how challenging spin can be. More people may join table tennis. Do you think it is a good idea to play at my level to promote table tennis to newbies?

Hi Jasper,

Most people like to feel like they are good at playing first.  I think using too much spin initially can be either good or detrimental depending on the person.  Make sure the new players feel comfortable first being able to hit the ball on the table.  If they show a real interest and are wanting to know more then show them spin and your ability so they see what they can start to achieve.

Well, most of the students could not even get the ball to bounce on the table even though I gave them such an easy ball

Without any tricky spin and all that
