Ping pong is the most popular racquet sport in the world. And no wonder. Its one of the few sports that is genuinely enjoyable to play on all levels and by all ages it can be as relaxed or as competitive as players like. Plus, its fast. No hanging round while the geek opposite plans his next move. The sociable aspects of the game mean that thousands of people are rediscovering the sport, with tables popping up in all the hippest bars and workplaces. The thrill of ping-pong is beautifully captured in this delightful little gift book. The rules of singles and doubles games are clearly explained and tips and techniques will provide readers with a crucial edge over their opponents. Slick photography from tournaments and from the street alongside some classic archive imagery bring the book alive and pay tribute to the vintage roots of this mighty sport. Following on from The Inspirational Moustache, Ping Pong captures a breaking trend in a small but beautiful little volume with a die cut cover.
