爱上桌球 与友同乐 Pool Game – For the Young at Heart
Pool Game – For the Young at Heart
It is a norm for young people to unwind over a few rounds of pool with friends after work. However, pool is not just for the young. This interesting game is also for those young at heart. Regardless of age, everyone can easily enjoy this game and make new friends.
Concern & Care Society started the pool interest group last year for the elderly folks. Pool is not just a game, in addition to enhancing one’s level of concentration; it also strengthens one’s motor skills such as hand-eye co-ordination.
Mr Chong, a member of the interest group said, “I used to see other people play on the pool table. As I did not have the chance to play when I was young, now my opportunity has come. I am happy that I can join the interest group and pick up some basic cueing skills. At the same time, I have made new friends.”
Another member of the interest group, Aunty Lian Huay enjoys playing pool very much. Her eyes lit up whenever she shares her pool experience. The 70-year-old said, “After attending the basic course for ten weeks at CCS Elderly Activity Talent Centre at Toh Guan, I fell in love with this game. I would come to the centre to practice my cueing skill everyday. It’s so fun!”
