Table tennis

I would like to speak about the table tennis.

The table tennis, also known as ping pong, is a sport in which two or four players hit a ball using table tennis rackets. The game takes place on a hard table divided by a net. Except for the initial serve, players must put the ball on the other side of the net.

The table tennis was created in England during 1880s by British military officers. A row of books were stood up along the center of the table as a net, two more books served as rackets and were used to continuously hit a golf-ball from one end of the table to the other.

The number of tennis players must be 260 million people. The table tennis is an olympic sport since 1998. Asian players are stronger in the sport. Zhang Jike is the world champion title for mens and Li Xiaoxia is the world champion title for women. My favorite player is Wang Hao, he is chinese, he was world champion before.

I practice the table tennis since five years at Herblay. I do three time a week so 7 hours a week. Also i make competitions approximately two to three times per month.
