The Bounce it Back Table Tennis School Program is a sport-for-development initiative supported by the Australian Government through the Pacific Sports Partnership program and ITTF-Oceania. The activities are designed for schools but can also be adapted for community groups, youth groups and any organisation working with children and youth.
Using table tennis as a vehicle, the Bounce it Back program aims to improve the quality of life of young people by:
- Increasing Levels of Physical Activity; and
- Promoting Social Inclusion
The manual consists of 8 engaging sessions designed to assist teachers with any level of table tennis understanding to deliver fund, safe and inclusive activities. Teachers and deliverers of the program are encourage to utilise articles and videos developed through the Smash Down Barriers program to help promote social inclusive objectives and promote understanding.
