Disability is not inability, this common saying encourages the physically challenged to have a positive attitude and define their course of life through engaging in useful activities rather than wallow in pity. Table tennis is one game that the handicap can enjoy, all they need is to have the ideal robots to ensure they maximize on their talents.
The table tennis equipment has simple modifications compared to other tables, although the rules remain the same. For example, the bat has a hardened rubber to ensure they are flexible and play even when on a wheelchair. In addition, they ball does not bounce back meaning, once it hits the ground within the area, it is a win for the opponent.
The tennis table lacks a net instead, it has a barrier which helps physically challenged people to hit the ball and have a defined area which they play. The simple modification depends on the type of challenge, if it is about hearing then a player can use a sign language interpreter but as long as he is flexible to move around and have a good eye coordination, it may even take your time to realize that he has a disability.
When the challenge is on the limbs, they use a wheelchair with a flexible wheel to help him ride around and hit back the ball before it lands on the table. They do play against one another hence there is a fair playing ground, no one has an advantage over the other, all you need is to ensure the trainer move an extra mile and practice more to take care of the challenge.
International ping Pong championships organize their tournaments and factor in all parameters to ensure there is a balance among the players. This gives them an inspiration and impression of value and appreciation of their natural disability.
Imagine if all the disabled individuals could be left out, in fact, they will be a burden to the society. We need to enhance their passion and give them a platform to exercise their abilities in their state. Let a disability not be a sorry state for them. It will discourage them and lead them to depression which has suicidal thoughts. That would be a failure of the society to be accommodation on varied races, diverse backgrounds, gender and sexual orientation.
Ping Pong has both mental and physical benefits on their health. It makes them have a coordinated body movement and enhances their cognitive development for their personality development. They need to engage in an activity that relaxes the mind and body, to relieve anxiety and finally reduce stress.
After a ping pong game, a cold or a hot shower comes in handy depending on the time of the day, followed by a stimulant. After dinner, one gets into a deep slumber waking up refreshed and energized ready to start a new day with a sober mind ideal for wise decision making. With this lifestyle, there is little room for pity or burying oneself in thoughts of a sorry state.
