  • Improved reflexes

These are just a few of the many excellent health benefits that ping pong provides, making ping pong a great game for a healthy activity that the entire family will love.  A fun and structured tournament can help promote a healthy lifestyle for you and your family.

Promote Healthy Competition

Healthy competition is an important part of family bonding – competition promotes a fun and exciting atmosphere and helps teach your kids competition, respect, and cooperation.  Be sure to control any outbursts in competitive nature.  Ping pong tournaments are supposed to be fun for the whole family, but there may be those in your family that take it too seriously.  Managing emotions during the tournament is important for the tournament to run successfully.

Hosting a Great Tournament

There are some simple tips you can use to host a great ping pong tournament that the entire family will enjoy.  The first step in hosting a fun tournament is to set aside the time during the week to host the tournament.  Clear the schedule and make sure everyone plans on showing up to the tournament.  Schedules can get hectic and overwhelming and it shows you care when you clear your schedule to make time for everyone.

Set clear rules that everyone is committed to following – that will help prevent arguments and create a fair and fun environment during the tournament.  Get organised!  Write down the rules so that everyone can easily review them if there is any clarification needed.  Print out a tournament bracket to keep score and make it feel fun and exciting for everyone.  Your kids will love watching their name get closer and closer to the winner’s line!

Get the Right Equipment

One of the most important parts of hosting a successful family ping pong tournament is making sure you have the right equipment, and enough of it.  Make sure that you have enough paddles and extra ping pong balls in case you lose some.  At T&R Sports, we stock a wide range of ping pong supplies that are affordable for everyone.
