Hong Kong Cricket Club Table Tennis Society 10/11

Table Tennis is the most played sport in the world. Hong Kong, China, England, Germany and most Asian countries have top ranked players. The Hong Kong Cricket Club is pleased to offer Table Tennis at competition and social levels. To enhance the skills and passion for the sport, the HKCC Table Tennis section meets regularly for training, matches and social events. The team also actively promotes the sport by engaging teams and players from all walks of life in the Hong Kong community. We welcome sports clubs, institutions, non-profit organizations, schools and local Table Tennis clubs to set up joint Table Tennis events with us.

Table Tennis is the foundation of many racquet sports and is used by professional athletes as an off-season training aid. As table tennis is one of the fastest pace sports, it is a great way to improve hand eye coordination for all ages. The sport is also a fun way to exercise and stay close to family and friends. And it can be played regardless of the weather condition outside.

Practice sessions are every Thursday at 8.30pm in the Multi-Purpose Room.

  • Thursday night friendly games
  • Training and coaching
  • Matches with other Sports Clubs and local Table Tennis Clubs
  • Annual Club Championship
  • Members are encouraged to enter local open tournaments organized by the Hong Kong Table Tennis Association

For enquiries or if you would like to join us, please contact the Sports Desk of the Hong Kong Cricket Club (recreation@hkcc.org)

More reasons to love Table Tennis

By Felix Tang

Recently, I wrote about how playing table tennis helps with dealing and controlling dementia, and this made me appreciate how the seemingly 'relaxed' sport could really do good to our long-term health.

After doing some more research, I have found that Table Tennis is considered a 'brain sport'. The movements associated with the sport would activate various parts of the brain simultaneously, keeping us alert and facilitating faster decision making. As table tennis players, we fully understand how unpredictable a game could be. Through the fastpaced gameplay, which requires a lot of mental and physical agility, it goes a long way to develop and perfect our motor skills.
