Why Is Table Tennis

great
for kids?

Why is Table Tennis great for kids? The short answer to that question is that table tennis contributes to the following 7 positive factors.

If you wish to learn more about why table tennis is an excellent sport for kids of all ages. In that case, we invite you to continue reading since this sport will also help you improve your cognitive skills like concentration, coordination, and mental strength, to name a few.

Up next, we will explain: Why table tennis is great for all kids, including those with ADD or ADHD!

Table Tennis

for kids with ADD or ADHD

Table Tennis is an excellent sport for all types of children, including those who have ADD or ADHD. Below are a few reasons why this is true.

  • Studies show that table tennis improves motor and strategy functions and promotes long-term memory.
  • This video does an excellent job explaining what happens to your brain when your practice table tennis. Redesign My Brain – Table Tennis. On the other hand, ABC News also covered a story about how table tennis helps improve cognitive abilities: This Is Your Brain on Ping Pong
  • Opponents’ Strength
  • Opponent’s Experience
  • The type of playing style your opponent has:
    • Offensive
    • All around
    • Defensive
  • Opponents’ Height
  • Type of rubber and paddle used by your opponent:
    • Types of paddles:
      Offensive + | Offensive | All Around
      Defensive | Defensive –
    • Types of Rubbers:
      Smooth Rubber | Short Pimples
      Long Pimps | Antispin

All of this makes the sport challenging because there is a surprise to the technique element with each new player you face. This fact makes your brain constantly work to adapt to new situations fast.

Lastly, there are two more important points as to why ping pong/table tennis is an excellent sport for any child. First, table tennis can teach our kids that hard work can pay off! Because table tennis is a solo sport, it guides our kids to associate hard work and dedication with winning. Like many other solo sports, the person who works the hardest tends to come out victorious in this sport. Fun Fact: Experts consider table tennis to mix of martial arts, chess, and tennis. It takes a lot of skill to be good at the sport.

Either way, you don’t need to win to reap this sport’s benefits. Just playing regularly gets your brain and body going!

To resume, Table Tennis is easy to get into the sport; it makes our brain and body improve in various ways, and it can help our kids avoid the technology trap.

We hope this information has given you the necessary knowledge to understand why table tennis is excellent for children with ADD or ADHD.

If you like what you have learned, we invite you to continue reading to understand why table tennis is one of the safest sports.

Table tennis is

one of the safest sports

As parents, we always want the best for our children, including keeping them safe. But what happens when our children want to start doing more physical activities? Unfortunately, popular sports such as football, basketball, or soccer tend not to be very safe for our children. No matter how careful they try to be, these sports are contact sports, which means that no matter how careful our children are, if their opponents are aggressive, it could lead to injury.

The good news is that table tennis, like other racket sports, tend to be very demanding but at the same time very safe sports for our children since they are practiced individually, and there is no contact with other players. Also, as mentioned before, these sports help increase speed, agility, mental toughness, angles work, and the ability to perform solo or as part of a team if they decide to play doubles.

Lastly, this is one of the few sports that can be played for a lifetime if practiced healthily.

Are you ready to make an excellent decision for your child? Sign them up for summer camp today at WDCTT table tennis and begin to notice how your children’s mental and physical health improves with table tennis!
