WHY PLAY MAKES GOOD BUSINESS

We all know we should eat healthy, get active and take time to relax, but with the ever-growing pressures of a busy life, it can seem impossible to make time for yourself.

There is, however, a movement of forward-thinking employers who recognise the benefits of having a healthy, happy workforce and are finding ways to help their staff. Some provide free fruit, others a chill-out area and many more an opportunity for employees to be more physically active; and it is in this area that Table Tennis England can help!

Table Tennis England’s Loop at Work initiative helps businesses create a place people love to work, along with creating the opportunity for employees to get active during their working day. Workplace table tennis is fantastic for your physical and mental wellbeing, as well as bringing employees closer together and developing social connections.

THE FACTS

Research shows just how good table tennis is for people’s wellbeing, and how it can add real value to your employee’s lives;

  • Those who play table tennis at work reported a better overall quality of life and overall mood
  • Table tennis participants experience significantly higher job satisfaction
  • Being physically active can help reduce the risk of depression, stress and anxiety
  • 51% of workplace table tennis participants reported they had increased their physical activity levels since playing at work
