Overview

Ping-pong is the most popular racquet sport in the world. And no wonder: it is one of the few sports that is genuinely enjoyable to play at any skill level and at any age. From the fluorescent-lit basements of the family home to the professional arena of the Olympics, it can be as relaxed or as competitive as players want it to be, while still offering all the adrenaline rush of any fast-paced sport or entertainment. No labored strategizing or belly itching: just quick instincts and the instantly recognizable click-clacking of its hypnotic rhythm. The sociable aspects of the game are today leading thousands of people to rediscover the sport, with tables popping up in all the hippest bars and workplaces. The joys and tribulations of ping-pong are beautifully illustrated in this delightful little gift book; the rules of singles and doubles games are clearly explained and tips and techniques provide readers with the crucial edge to vanquish their opponents. Photography from tournaments sits alongside classic archival imagery, bringing the book alive while paying tribute to the sport's vintage roots. Ping Pong captures a breaking trend in a small but beautiful little volume, and is a great little gift book for young and old alike.
