GO Active Thame Table Tennis Club

What We Did

With inspiration from the Ping Pong Care Campaign, and the movie "Never too old for Gold" in December 2013, we visited existing groups at Thame Leisure Centre to consult with 50+ users on what activities they would be interested in trying out. From this, we were able to create taster sessions for 5 popular activities.

Participants enjoyed the taster session so much that in total 50 adults were engaged through the initial taster program. Due to the popularity of Zumba Gold and Table Tennis two new classes were set up from the tasters, whilst participants from the Pilates and Tai Chi taster sessions were able to join the existing classes at the centre.
