Table Tennis at Home with Cork SportsAbility

  

Cork Sports Partnership, Cork SportsAbility, Table Tennis Ireland and Munster Table Tennis have teamed up to roll out an exciting New Table Tennis At Home Skills Programme for families of all abilities across Cork! Table Tennis is a sport that everyone can play at home, enabling us to keep active minds, and healthy bodies! 

The aim of the programme is to introduce families to the sport of Table Tennis through interactive online skills sessions and live classes with experienced coaches. This programme will support families of children with additional needs and will provide ongoing support to families if adaptations or modifications are needed to ensure all the family can enjoy table tennis. 

In return for full commitment to the programme, each family will receive access to a 4 Week Interactive Skills Programme (training plan, video sessions, live classes) and play at home resource pack!
