BAT Foundation is a health & wellbeing charity that delivers a specialised Table Tennis Alzheimer’s Therapy programme to UK care settings.
BAT IS COMMITTED TO DELIVERING:
Working with neuroscience specialists, BAT have created the world’s first table tennis table specifically designed to provide drug free therapy for those living with dementia and their carers. 2017 launches a corporate sponsorship campaign to donate an initial 40 BAT Therapy Tables to UK care settings.
Working in collaboration with King’s College London, BAT are delivering an original piece of research to show how table tennis can improve hand-eye coordination, stimulate the hippocampus, extend long term memory, delay cognitive decline and enhance motor skills.
BAT are building a national programme of table tennis training to provide care settings and activity managers with specialised coaching, proven games and activities, and practical resources all designed to benefit those living with Alzheimer’s physically, mentally, and socially.
