He may have just celebrated his 94th birthday, but age isn't stopping Norman Wong from enjoying his hobby of tennis, both on the table and court.
Norman is a long term and still active member of Concord Senior Citizens Club's Table Tennis activity group.
He first took up table tennis in around 1970, after putting a table up in the back room of his house so his four children could play.
He said the club is a good social outlet, and good means of helping to keep him active.
Norman also heads to the local tennis court to have a hit with his family at least once a week.
"Unfortunately, I can't move or run that well. It's (tennis) more of a yours game now. If I can't get it, it's yours," he joked.
Norman also enjoys 20 minute walks around Bayview Park, enjoys mahjong and sudoku puzzles, and still gets outside to wash the car when needed.
He says he thinks it is important to keep up his activities and keep moving.
"I reckon if you don't move, you're gonna rust up and just go down much quicker," he said.
"People ask me 'what's your secret?' I say I don't smoke, don't drink don't go out with bad women and don't have fun," he joked.
Well, apart from fun on the court and table tennis table, that is!
The group plays at Concord Senior Citizens Centre from 9am-12pm on Fridays and 6.30-8.30pm on Tuesday nights.
Players must be residents of the Canada Bay local government area and be able to play to a reasonable level, as there are no beginner classes.
