Volunteers needed to support a mental health table tennis session in Basingstoke

Sport in Mind provides sports and physical activities for those experiencing mental health problems and are looking for enthusiastic, approachable and engaging volunteers to help at our sessions.

If you enjoy sport and would like to support a qualified coach to run a welcoming weekly session to help build an enjoyable friendly environment for our participants, then please do get in touch! The role will include welcoming new participant as well as the regular attendees, playing sport as well as helping with some setting up and tidying after sessions.

An understanding of how sport and physical activity can have a positive impact on your well-being would be helpful, but we do not require any experience of working with people experiencing mental health problems or playing sport, all you need is a willingness to join in, have fun and help engage others. This is a hugely rewarding opportunity, working with adults with a range of mental health conditions and sporting abilities. 

Volunteers are a key part of our sessions; supporting the group to have fun, build confidence as well as friendships, making the sessions enjoyable for all.


Volunteers don’t need to have any experience of playing sport or of working in mental health, the main skills we are looking for are being friendly and approachable and the ability to engage attendees in the activity.
