At Romdag, we developed a link up with BAT foundation.com (Bounce Alzheimer’s Therapy).

 

BATs have researched table tennis and found a number of benefits for people with dementia including:

 

  • improving hand-eye coordination
  • improving memory
  • delaying cognitive decline
  • enhancing motor skills

 

BATs have also worked upon specialist equipment.

 

BATs joined us last year at Demfest to showcase their work.

 

As a result of the interest at Demfest, we have set up a dementia friendly table tennis session every fortnight at The United Reformed Church, who have also been very supportive.

 

We take a break for coffee and share the use of the tables with the members who have been very supportive.

 

This event has proven to be very popular and enjoyable for all involved.
