What is Polybat?

Polybat endeavours to provide youngsters with more severe impairments, who cannot play recreational table tennis, with a suitable bat/ball net type game (with the net removed).

Sides are used on the table tennis table to 'contain' the movements of the ball. The basic abilities required to play the game are:

  • some hand/arm dexterity/movement
  • ball tracking
  • reaction time
  • tactical awareness.

The perceptual challenges of ordinary table tennis are reduced as the ball is kept on the surface of the table during play. The table tennis table format was also chosen because of its universal identity and thus no special table was ever considered.
