Ōmokoroa Settlers' Hall

Table Tennis

Table Tennis is a fun, friendly game for anybody. It’s a sport that combines fitness, competition as well as lots of entertainment. It’s also a sport that is played indoors so it doesn’t matter what the weather is doing outside.

Table Tennis in the Omokoroa Settlers Hall began in 2015 when a table tennis enthusiast gave a group of his friends a table tennis table. The friends soon outgrew the garage they were playing in and decided they would “have a try” to see how they would go in the Hall weekly.

As time went on, more people joined in and thanks to donations received from The Centre, the Table Tennis Club now has three tables and has become a regular Monday feature from 7.00 until 8.30 PM at the Small Hall. Numbers vary but there are always enough people who turn up for their weekly “table tennis fix” to get at least two tables out for some fun, competitive games – new attendees always receive a warm welcome.

Don’t worry if you don’t have any gear as the Club provides all you need (including the opportunity for post-match socialising with other Members) – you will need to make sure you are dressed for a good work out and wear proper exercise footwear. $5.00 is all you need provide to help cover the Club’s costs.

The Omokoroa Club sessions include:

  • Singles
  • Doubles; as well as
  • Mixed Doubles

As with participating in any sporting activities, there are (apart from helping you to burn calories!) other health benefits including:

  • Improving your brain health
  • Helping to manage your weight
  • Strengthening your bones and muscles
  • Improving your abilities to do everyday activities and prevent falls
  • Increasing your energy
  • Improving your overall mental health by interacting with others
