My passion for table tennis begun right after my first play in my college. Before I play table tennis, I wasn't good at any sport: soccer / football, basketball, martial art, and so on. You know, I wore glasses since a very young age, and this condition made me afraid of breaking my glasses and hurting my eyes during training. That's why I didn't really "all out" in any other sport.

But table tennis is different. I think the risk of suffering injury in table tennis is minimal compared to the other major sport. That's why I can do this sport all out. And table tennis is fun, especially when I train really really hard to master new technique / serve, and my biggest joy is to find out that I have mastered the technique and do it perfectly in the match. Probably table tennis is the only thing where I can focus my mind intensely.

Now I'm 23 and I've been playing table tennis for about 3 years. I hope I still have plenty of room to develop.

Hi Erriza,

Another great thing about the game.  I do like the fact that you have you own space to work with.

My passion for table tennis started when i was 12. My parents played when they were younger. They saw an add in a local news paper for a table tennis club wanting juniors, so they rang up a bloke called Lindsay Drummond spoke and with him. We wen't to see him in person.

I found him really ingageing, friendly, a person who had amazing peoples skills and who taught all juniors how to have fun, enjoy themselves and most of all behave and have good ettiquite. So i joined up. The rest is history i am still playing today 18 years on.!

Hi Everyone,

My passion for table tennis just started 2 months ago but I knew playing table tennis since I was 11, but I was not interested then, one day viewing videos in youtube, I watched a video of Ma Long vs. Zang-Jike, seeing their style of play, I wished I would also play like them one day. So, whenever I play table tennis I watch some inspirational videos and In the last 2 months I learnt more than I learnt before. Now I am 13.
