I was aghast the other day when i learned that table tennis, better known as ping-pong, was China's national sport. Until now, i hadn't even considered it as being a sport. I considered it mostly as a hobby or game (like backgammon or checkers). But as a national sport?? Really???
I used to love playing ping-pong. My parents bought us a ping-pong table when my sibblings & I were kids and we'd play against one another every day. It was a lot of fun! But never did we ever consider it to be a bonafide sport.
You thoughts please! Have you ever played ping-pong? Do you still play? Do you consider it a sport? If so, should it be considered a country's national sport? For those who disagree, is there a way to get this changed? Personally, i'd be embarrassed if i were a country who's national sport is ping-pong!
