Table Tennis can be played by people of all ages and levels of fitness. It offers good cardiovascular exercise and it is fun to play. There is a minimal risk of injury. A workout can be gentle or highly aerobic involving fast movements to burn up calories. Furthermore it helps sharpen the mind requiring strategic decision making in a fraction of a second during a rally.

Beginners can burn 200-350 calories per hour of play. Elite players with better footwork can boost this to over 500 calories. Playing table tennis you will strengthen and exercise many muscles including the quads, calves, forearms, abdominals, biceps, shoulders and triceps.
