About Taspony:

Taspony was invented by Japan Nagoya YMCA in 1981 and became a new sport played among members. The Chinese YMCA of Hong Kong introduced the sport to Hong Kong in 2009 and started promoting it to the community. It is a safe sport for people of all ages, and we has been offering regular training courses ever since. In 2016, we further introduced soft Taspony to our members. It is suitable for the over 40's age group in particular. 

 

Features:

  1. The Taspony ball is made of spongy materials. It is light in weight and safe.
  2. It does not require a large playing field.
  3. It is played by striking the ball with our palms. It does not require rackets.
  4. Playing rules are simple. It can be played in form of a match.
  5. It gives a balanced training on limbs coordination using both left and right hands
  6. It offers moderate physical activity and is suitable for people of all ages
