WINTER SPORTS

Anything that helps, benefits, uplifts, promotes, encourages and contributes to the welfare of others is good.

               TABLE TENNIS 

Location: Bloomington Armory at 3300 W. 98th St. 
Time: Start 9 AM
Days: Tuesday and Thursday from the end of September to first of May

We have anywhere from 4  to 10 players on any particular day with ages between 55 and 85.  We play until we get tired.  This is a fairly aggressive sport and we work up a sweat, so dress comfortably and bring your table tennis paddle.  Play is very informal and is mostly doubles using the old rules of 21 points.  We vary partners often and try to keep the teams as evenly balanced as possible so that we can have fun regardless of skill level.  We usually play some singles when the session winds down.
For information call Gary Walker, 952-270-0039
