    Ping Pong

    As anyone who takes classes in Town Engineering Building would know, I've been playing a lot of ping pong this month. I also came across this video. Crazy is the only thing I can say!

    Re: Ping Pong

    At my work we play a lot of ping pong and watched this video along with some other good videos of ping pong. I wish I could do a cart wheel, let alone hit a ball too.

    We used to sit around a couple of tables and actually study between classes in the lobby.

    Yes, they just got a table this fall. If I ever had an hour between classes that is what I did.

    Re: Ping Pong

    I'm in town now grading papers and finals and I'm waiting for someone to give me a reason to take a break for some ping pong!

    Re: Ping Pong

    I used to work at the Ames airport while in school and they had a ping pong table in the basement of the FBO. We used to spend HOURS down there on the weekends when there were no authority figures around. I got pretty darn good, not Forrest good, but good.

    Re: Ping Pong

    I work with some guys who use $200 paddles. Does anyone else see this as a little crazy. They are pretty good, but with that much money in a paddle you better be pretty fudging good.

    I don't know why I am surprised there are $200 paddles, but I am.

    Re: Ping Pong

    A friend of mine is pretty high up in the table tennis world (don't let him catch you calling it ping pong) and he has a "serving robot" in his basement to practice with.
