Illawarra Sports Stadium has partnered with the Illawarra District Table Tennis Association and the Kiama Table Tennis Club to launch a new community sports program aimed at “keenagers” (older adults aged 50 years and over). This is an opportunity for keenagers in our community to become more active and enjoy the recreation/sport of table tennis while improving their health and well-being.
Every Wednesday and Thursday from 10am to 1pm when the Stadium is not being used for sporting competitions and major events. There will be more than 30 weeks of the year where this program can operate from February to mid-December.
Daily rate of $3* per person which covers discounted court hiring fees, use of utilities (lighting and air conditioning), facilities maintenance, and includes morning coffee and biscuits. All equipment is provided.
*NOTE: From 1st October 2020, daily rate will be $4 person.
Research in England and Europe has demonstrated that Table Tennis is one of the best recreation activities to improve fitness and well-being in adults over 50 years of age. It has also shown to be the best recreational activity to delay the onset of dementia in older persons.
More than 10 tables can operate at any one time based on demand.
