Okay, okay. The truth is that I like to play these silly games I make. When I was a child I could spend a couple hours just bouncing a ball off a wall with a paddle. I would count how many times I could hit it without missing.

This one person Table Tennis table/paddle reminds me of those hours hitting the ball off the wall. The goal of this game is simple. How many times can you bounce the ball over the net without hitting the same side of the table twice in a row? 

You can tell your spouse that you are making it for the grandchildren. Of course, you have to test it to make sure it works well. 

Information: Ping Pong is a trademarked name. Table Tennis is not. Parker Brothers hold the trademark which was purchased from John Jacques. Jacques registered the trademark for Ping Pong in 1901.

Today Ping Pong and Table Tennis are quite different. Ping Pong is associated with home play and Table Tennis is considered a sport. The rules, scoring, and equipment are different.

Here are highlights from the 2019 Table Tennis Championship final.

This artist creates something wonderful from the simplest design. I love everything about this art. I know it won't be everyone's cup of tea but even if you don't like the art you have to respect his vision. I wish I had designed this piece.
