The Yorkshire Cricket Foundation are providing casual table tennis participation opportunities at Emerald Headingley Stadium!
To increase physical activity provision, the YCF have been provided with Table Tennis equipment through the “Loop in the Community” programme established by Table Tennis England.
The programme aims to put table tennis where people already meet. Staff of Yorkshire Cricket and students of Yorkshire Cricket College are encouraged to use the table during breaks in the day as a way of relaxing and stepping away from their desks.
Table tennis provides a form of physical activity that will greatly improve mobility and co-ordination, but also has a unique effect on cognitive health in those with impairments. The equipment is also used as part of our Yorkshire Social Club, where we deliver sessions to older adults living in Yorkshire.
