Tennis anyone? The tabletop version arrives in Cold Lake

September 14th, 2023

Walter and Marie-Anna enjoy a match.

What can you do for fun and movement at Points West Living Cold Lake? Lots of things—and now you can add table tennis to the list.

The residents are benefiting from a kind gift from Recreation Aide Claudia Cupasachoa, who donated the equipment. “Table tennis is another really good way for our residents to get moving, and it helps improve balance, reflexes and coordination,” she said. “This activity stimulates mental alertness and develops mental acuity.” 

Residents Walter Peters and Marie-Anna Fontaine are two of the people who have already enjoyed a round or two (or more!). Walter said he found it so engaging that he didn’t want the game to end, while Marie-Anna said, “I am doing more exercise with this game than walking.”

It’s amazing what a simple setup can do!
