Ping Pong Care Campaign

• The Ping Pong Care Campaign is a health and well-being campaign aimed at promoting active ageing in older people

• Simple concept; we’re looking to increase mobility, improve mental health and tackle social isolation in by reaching 60,000 older people in 2013

• Engaging people around the issues of age, the campaign will bring the film and game to 2000 older person settings across the UK

• Thanks to the BIG Lottery Reaching Communities Fund, we’re providing resources to settings most in need for FREE!

Ping Pong Care Campaign

We think that the campaign can help with some key challenges we face in the UK today:

• Improve health and well being of UKs older population: combatting ageism, installing positive role models, bringing age to the top of the agenda

• Innovative alternatives to prescription drugs: move with the growing wave of preventative medicine

• Educational tool and vehicle for promotion of health agenda: within healthcare profession, care profession and general public

• Tackling health inequalities: engaging a wide range of stakeholders in deprived areas, empowering local community activators with engaging content

 • Aids Motor Function: Increased

blood flow to the brain helps to improve cognitive ability

• Gives Empowerment: Increased mobility and upper body work has huge benefits for independence

• Improves Balance: Better agility and stability builds confidence and leads to reduced falls

Learning From The Film... Changing BodiesIn the film, Inge, who suffers from Dementia, attributes her warding off of the disease to playing ping pong. Whilst we are not purporting it as a cure, there are clear physical benefits we should highlight in this highly accessible sport. See www.pingpongfilm.co.uk/campaign:

Ping Pong Care CampaignLearning From The Film... Changing Bodies

• Conduct a medical study in collaboration with Kings College London: Department of Gerentology and Neurology to look at the effects of regular table tennis play on cognitive ability

• Understand if and how table tennis affects cognitive function: use table tennis as a fun way to explain different cognitive functions and the relationship between them and physical health

• Engagement: General public, linking the popular film with the cognitive science Healthcare professionals in debate about work with older people Further funding on table tennis and Alzheimer’s Disease. To date,

pharmacological treatments have been the major focus of research however other low cost therapies should be investigated

Ping Pong Care CampaignApplying The Campaign... Changing AttitudesSustainable change is dependent on education. This is how the campaign can help to change attitudes:

• Inspirational role models: Gives as many older people as possible the chance to see the film and be inspired by it:

• Active ageing and wellbeing: Raises awareness, showing benefits of exercise and activity

• Defunct stereotypes: Changes opinion around the physical ability, capability, and social capacity of older people
