Who plays table tennis, Pit? What does the general public think of table tennis? It's called a sport, but compared to real exercise I do, running and skateboarding, it's hardly exercise at all. I think of it more in the board game category lol.

A friend and I just started playing, and we're already getting pretty damn good after about 4 hours of play over two days. We're both from tennis backgrounds when we were younger, so the translation aint that bad. The order goes precision -> accuracy -> strength. We got the precision down, so it's now all about placement.

Discuss everything about this great board game.

I always hit the ball too hard, which sends it flying a good distance. Gotta fix that.

I'm soooooooooooooooooooooooooo bad at it. Actually, I'm bad at anything involving nets.

I wish I was good at it though, it looks fun.

I remember my parents and i went to some terribly dull Pontins holiday camp when i was young and there was so little going on my dad and i played table tennis for 2 weeks solid.

We got pretty damned good in that 2 weeks of boredom. Too bad he's now dead and i suck at table tennis again.

I play table tennis is my gym class. I'm pretty good, and I've only lost one game, but I hardly consider it to be a gym activity.

I used to play. It was quite fun. I have a friend who's pretty good at it.

Table tennis is one of those sports where you have to reach a certain level if you want to get some real exercise out of it.
The more you say 'epic' the less it means.

When I broke my right wrist (I'm righthanded) I got really good at playing tabletennis with my left hand. Couldn't play tennis, write, play guitar etc so it was a good way to pass the time.

I'm not very good at it. I'm too clumsy and slow to react.

Played for a while. If you're not sweating as much as you do in skateboarding you're doing it wrong. People have this perception that table tennis means standing still and hitting balls 3 m high. Same problem with tennis and badminton.
Also, once in a while you get to do something like this. You feel like a boss afterwards:

Maybe if you suck shit at it then you wont get exercise. Put two good players against each other and have them duke it out and you'll see very quickly how much exercise is required. It's not a physically easy sport.

What does a girl have to do to get it in the butt thats all I ever wanted from you. Why, Ace? Why? I clean my asshole every night hoping and wishing and it never happens.

This. I used to do it for a year or three when I was younger and I found it more exhausting than say soccer or hockey.

It's faster than soccer and often faster than hockey. The mental focus alone takes a lot of energy.

I used to play in a team, and took part in competitions and such. But it got too stressing and demanding, and I couldn't keep up with that, my band and studies at the same time, so obviously I decided to leave. And I'm glad I did, I didn't like how things worked there.
