We are excited to launch Serve, Spin, Smash!  

Activators and participants are encouraged to register for this 8-week introductory, fun and inclusive community Para table tennis programme that welcomes disabled people of all ages and abilities, using adapted equipment and games to maximise confidence and enjoyment. 

This Para table tennis programme is co-designed and delivered in partnership between Paralympics New Zealand, Table Tennis New Zealand, Disability Sport Auckland, Parafed Canterbury, Parafed Waikato, Waitematā Table Tennis, Table Tennis Canterbury, and Waikato Table Tennis.  

Serve, Spin, Smash! is free, and sessions take place weekly for eight weeks.

Serve, Spin, Smash! is one of three Regional Community Para Sport Pilots. These benefit the regions involved, as well as enhance Para sport capability within national sports organisations. This capability will be the foundation for disabled people participating in the Para sport regularly. Ultimately, PNZ wants to see every disabled person have equal opportunity to participate in sport as their non-disabled peers.
