Table tennis
Table tennis

Table Tennis

Table tennis is like lawn tennis but played on a table and indoors most of the time. It can be played by two solo players or two players to a team and the rules differ a little for both. The game involves the challenge of containing the ball in the limited space and within the boundaries of the 9x5 feet table. Though Ping-Pong or TT can be seen as a social or informal game, the game that is played competitively or for points is a game of strategy and quick movement. If you’ve never given the game a go, getting involved in a game with experienced players can leave you spinning in circles, but it’s a quick way to catch on to different strategies players use to win points. Some tactics involve slow or fast play, imparting a spin to the ball, or using timed drop shots when your opponent is far from the net. It requires fast and agile movement with your feet and improves your reflexes as you are forced to think quickly at all times. And it’s not just your feet you need to keep alive; you need to summon the power of all your senses to keep up with the speedy mind and muscular coordination it demands. Why We Love It We’ve seen people play it for years and years and realised what a great ice-breaker it is. It forces people to come out of their shells and be a little aggressive and physically involved. It unintentionally brings out characteristics of someone that you would not normally see, like competitiveness, aggressiveness, ability to teach, patience, vivacity and ability to work as a team. The game is impossible to play as a team if you are not constantly communicating and working together. It’s a fun way to get all your team members and family during family outings in Bangalore involved and excited in a matter of minutes. You could do a quick tag team play where the first person to get out has to pass the bat on to the next. You’ll be alarmed at the amount of laughter and noise this will ignite. Why You Should Love It There are plenty of reasons to love this game and we’re sure you’ll feel it too. It’s a great stress-buster for over worked office goers. Just five minutes into a game will get you pumped and give your body a new lease of energy. It’s a great activity to get a whole family or team involved because it’s almost as much fun just watching the game! It does not have any restrictions on age or size or position, you could get beaten by your ten-year-old, or even beat your boss at it! It’s a really great way to get quite a lot of exercise and have a blast while doing it too at your corporate day outing or for corporate team building in Bangalore! Don’t be fooled by the looks of this sport, it may look like a small area to play in, but this game will make you sweat buckets and can be more cardio than you could ever get at the gym without even realising it!
