Why I love ping pong?
Ping pong or Table tennis has become one of the most famous sports being played all over the world and its equipment is also available in nearly all top countries which means it is played nearly everywhere and is considered as a world sport. I started playing ping pong when I was around 10 years old and since then I have loved this game more and more everyday as it is easy to learn and a very fun game that you can play in the comfort of your home.
The main reason why I love to play ping pong is the satisfaction and enjoyment I get from playing a good competitive game and it also help me in socializing. I socialize at www.pingpongtabledimensions.com and I have made a lot of new friends through ping pong whenever I went to a sports club and started playing table tennis. As I’m really good people often offer to play with me and are get friendly when they have a major common interest with me.

Another reason why I love this game is because of the exciting feeling you get when you perfectly execute a smash or a shot and hits the middle of your blade and the opponent is left shocked. The look on the opponents face gives me immense pleasure thus I tend to play a lot of smashes throughout my game.
Being a professional at ping pong has its own benefits as you could teach the beginners about how to improve their game. The feeling of satisfaction I get when a beginner requests me to teach him some moves is indescribable and it always feels good to be a teacher and train your student according to your style of play. This teaching can also be a career option for me in the future if I get really good with my game and as it’s a very famous game, table tennis coaches tend to earn a lot too.
It also gives me pleasure to watch the professionals play the game I love. Whether it is on the TV or even in real life, it’s always very exciting and something I always look forward to as I always learn some new moves and techniques from my favorite players.
Table tennis has evolved as a worldwide sport over time and different companies all over the word produce quality ping pong equipment and it always feels good to get your hands on some new blades. Everybody is comfortable with a different type of racket and your favorites might change every once in a while every time you use a new racket that impresses you.
My favorite blade is the StigaTitan . It comes with a completely new construction structure and comes with a 2mm inverted rubber sponge, a 5ply extra light blade and an Italian handle. It weighs a surprising 0.35 pounds only and it provides with the extra bit of speed required by the attacking players and also comes with extra power and a great feel in the hand.
Table tennis also brought out the competitive side of me as now I have become pretty competitive and tend to take on challenges quite willingly. The first real tournament I played was when I was 16 and I have just continued to improve over time by losing some and by winning some games. Being good at table tennis can also open a lot of doors of opportunity for you like it happened with me, like apart from just playing table tennis as a professional you have other career opportunities too like you can start a blog and write about ping pong like I do and spread your wisdom all over the world among other ping pong enthusiasts.
