The hibernating ping-pong players have awakened to revive their skill once more. A common recreational sport, this class showcases skill and passion wrapped up into a fun Tuesday evening. With no plethora of tables around, this is the easiest way to get practice.
“I like ping-pong because it’s really exciting. It’s a fun time to get away from homework, schoolwork. You spend a lot of time in your apartment or your dorm and coming out here is just a lot of fun,” said Josh Smith, a freshman studying business management.
Each player writes his or her name on the board in order to set up a match, but it is later erased upon elimination. However, you are still allowed to play despite being removed from the bracket. But there is more motivation to attend this friendly competition than simply to take a break from classes and homework.
“I think it’s a really fun sport,” said Sarah Sommers, a freshman studying art. “It’s a really fun date, if you want to go on a date. If you just want to find a new hobby or improve your skills, it’s free ping-pong. So, I think it’s a really good deal.”
The Ping-Pong society meets each week on Tuesday evenings from 7-9 p.m. in MC room 220C. Paddles and balls are provided, but those who attend are welcome to bring your own.
