Day 1

Hi there! First of all, welcome to my blog. My hope for this blog is that it will enable more to learn to appreciate competitive table tennis as a real sport that can actually make a person sweat (it's true--real, salty, sticky sweat).

For the 11 years I've played competitive table tennis, I have had to try to convince too many people that, yes, ping pong is a sport and, yes, strenuous physical workouts and footwork drills can actually help someone's table tennis game. While I completely endorse basement table tennis, ping pong is more than a leisurely game to be played at random family gatherings. Table tennis is an Olympic sport to which many people around the world devote much (if not all) of their lives.

I'll continually update this blog. I'm thinking of including basics, such as rules, playing styles, equipment, tournaments, organizations, and how to get involved. I'll also try to post cool videos, photos, current events, and featured players. And if there's anything else you want to know, lemme know!

So, with that, I hope that this blog can provide a window into the "other," less known side of table tennis. Welcome, and enjoy!
