I’ve been playing ping pong at the Canadian Community Table Tennis Association for eight years now, and in fact, it was me who convinced my husband to join in this sport.

We are entering retirement soon, both of us enjoy an active and healthy lifestyle, and as we age and go through menopause, we needed a new form of aerobic exercise that was not too intense and not prone to injury.

Let me give you some tips on how playing ping pong with your significant other can be an incredibly bonding experience!

Not only does it help keep you in shape, but it also introduces you to like-minded people at the club. Going to the club to play has become the highlight of our day.

I truly believe that sharing interests with your partner is essential, and playing ping pong together has really helped us bond and understand each other better as we navigate our skill levels.

So why not invite your partner or friends to join you on the table?

You never know who you’ll meet or what kind of fun you’ll have!

Let’s keep those ping pong balls flying and jumping in the air!
