WHY SHOULD MY FAMILY PLAY TABLE TENNIS?
A great way to bond is by playing ping pong on a good quality table. Since we are already trapped in technology bubbles, we don’t have time for personal interactions with our family, and one way to pop these bubbles is by playing table tennis together as a family. There is no better way to get your family turn off their phones and leave their gadgets and have some memorable time together than an enjoyable, competitive and active sport you can play right inside your house. It’s also not just a fun activity, it’s also a healthy one. It doesn’t just burn calories, it also activates various parts of our brain, enhances our body’s reflexes and helps to recover from surgeries or health problems.
