A new hobby…

Recently, I started playing table tennis…without a table. You may be wondering “how is this possible?” Well, I improvised. I started playing with a wall, and letting the ball bounce off the floor.

Another bit of table tennis I started doing and enjoying is bouncing the ball up using the bat. It’s pretty fun and if you have a ping-pong bat and ball at home, you should try it!

Before the ping-pong though, I was doing the former of the two activities I did with the ping-pong bat with a handball. I liked that too, but it made a lot of noise, so I decided that ping-pong is probably better.

After trying with a handball now, I’ve decided that ping-pong is easier too.

I started this hobby when the holidays started, last month. Now, the funny thing is, I’ll probably be doing this every day for another month, since here in New Zealand, the Christmas/New Years break is 2 whole months!

So, if you guys want, you can head over to some sports gear store, get a ping-pong bat and ball and start doing these activities to have even more fun during the holidays!
