Goal of the event:
We wanted people to play table tennis as a disabled person does. We wanted them to understand how it feels to be disabled and we wanted to raise awareness for the disabled people.
Short description of the event:
There were people on the floor and they were sitting and each two of them tried to match and they played with each other trying not to use their legs as much as possible.We had ping-pong balls and rackets as usual.Every one of the particpants was using a huge effort to play but they were not successful. We tried to play table tennis while sitting so that we could understand how does it work to move only some parts of our body . Therefore, we realized that it is so hard to move and play without using the down side of our body so we had a hard time to play table tennis like that.
How did your event go?:
We realized how hard it is to try to play when we are not able to use our legs. Now we wonder how would it be if we couldnt use our hands.
