Hansel remembers first trying the sport at the senior center after suffering a wrist injury.

I had a broken wrist and I needed practice to move it, and that's when I started.

“I was younger then,” she added, laughing.

Someone who is 98 years old and plays as well as she does was really impressed, nodded Bill Leng, table tennis leader at the senior center. We have to take it easy, we can't destroy it, but Gretel is very good.

The average age of the center's table tennis players is about 75, he noted.

I'm just trying.

Staying active is very important, she says.
