Spinneroos – Bounce into Table Tennis was designed and developed through support from Sport Australia, Table Tennis England, ACHPER and all Member Associations of Table Tennis Australia. The program activities are designed for children under the age of 10 in clubs, schools and Childcare Centres but can easily be adapted to any organisation working with children and youth.

While acquiring technical table tennis skills is an important factor, Spinneroos aims to provide a holistic approach in the development of the child, which includes:

  • Engaging the child in regular movement-based experiences that foster a positive relationship to an active and healthy lifestyle;
  • Providing opportunities to develop and apply personal and emotional strategies to promote a sense of well-being and identity that ultimately lead to respectful relationships; and
  • Creating a safe and inclusive environment in which the child plays an active role to maintain and further develop a socially positive experience for themselves and all other participants involved.

In Spinneroos we apply elements related to the ‘Game Sense Approach’ and Sport Australia’s ‘Physical Literacy Framework’. Further, the education resources of this program were developed in conjunction with ACHPER (SA).
