OK, so I’ve been getting back into table tennis. I could certainly use the exercise.
We had a table tennis tourney at church last Sunday and it was a lot of fun. I need some practice. I’m not used to playing singles.
I’ve been playing a little at work, however it’s mostly been NPH Volleypong. We have our own logo and Facebook group if you’re interested.
I’ve also been cruising around Youtube checking out the guys that are really good at table tennis.
Some of the notable players: Jan-Ove Waldner, Vladimir Samsonov, Timo Boll, Ma Lin, Jorgen Persson, Zoran Primorac, etc. (There’s no Americans in the ITTF Top 100, incidentally). I think I like watching Samsonov, Waldner and Boll the most.
So, here’s some of the better videos from Youtube:
Waldner vs Persson
Jan-Ove Waldner domination – Waldner basically embarrasses this guy. Yikes.
Timo Boll age 4 to 1996 – Neat video history of Timo Boll growing up playing table tennis
Samsanov vs Boll
