Ping Pong/Table Tennis Thread

Who plays?
I played a lot on vacation and am really getting into it.
I am going to try to make my own table here at home.
Discuss everything and anything about Ping Pong or Table Tennis, whichever you prefer to call it.

me and a friend used to be the regional champion team, but I've sort of fallen out of it during the past year or so.

I do have a $300(NZ) paddle though

Damn... ping pong? Isn't that what children call it who can barely hit the ball?

It's Table Tennis here . I play in the district league, and I'd say I was an average player (well, better than most people, but not most people in the league).

You can read about some of my games/matches here , if you just click a date (we have weekly matches) , and do ctrl+f... ''James Smith-Daye'' , then ya should find something telling you how pro I am

I have a ping pong table in my room. I still don't play often at all though. I only have one or two friends that are any good at it and one of them is out of my league, so its hard to actualy have a decent match.

Noooooo, Ping Pong is for the creative people who prefer a friendly onamotapoeia to a boring ol self explanatory boring name.

Table tennis can be a lot of fun. I had a table in my garage, but I don't have a garage anymore. So I haven't played for a while.
