BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – Capital area residents with an opening in their social schedules on Monday and Thursday afternoons may want to sign up for a group activity offered by the Recreation and Park Commission for the Parish of East Baton Rouge (BREC).

BREC says table tennis at the Rec is now one of its activities offered under its list of Adult Leisure Programs.

As of August 29, the group that plays table tennis currently meets at Independence Community Park’s (750 Independence Boulevard) Rec Center from 1-3 p.m. on Mondays and Thursdays.

BREC encourages anyone interested to join as the sport is said to help improve hand-eye coordination and keep reflexes sharp.
