At this evening’s session in the Sheung Lok centre, we made use of the awesome table tennis facilities and things got a bit heated!
It may have taken us what felt like three hours to successfully learn to serve and keep a rally going but by the end of the session, we almost went to sudden death in a doubles match of first to 25 wins. Victoria and Myrtle ended up victorious even though Laura and Olivia had a 7-point lead at one stage.
So despite knowing none of the rules and hitting each other with ping pong balls on numerous occasions, the session was a lot of fun and we definitely needed the snacks on the table at the end to refuel!
As well as the table tennis, we discussed where we’d like the group to go over the next couple of months and came up with some ideas for activities and discussions we could have in the future. But if you want to know what our oh-so-fabulous ideas were you’ll have to join us at Sheung Lok centre next week to find out.
See you then!
