Found 6th Dec 2016
My wife teaches visually impaired children and has set me a challenge.
One of her pupils is a very keen and able table tennis player but unfortunately his eye sight is deteriorating rapidly.
This means he is struggling to see the normal sized balls and is being forced to give up on his passion.
I wondered if anyone knows where she can get some large table tennis balls that may prolong his love for the sport.

They are a bit pricey but you can get 55mm orange table tennis balls here which may be useful both for size and enhanced visibility? bribartt.co.uk/pro…ls/

Thanks everyone, they look great.

Would ball pit type balls work?
