They also don't And why not?
If you are thinking about taking up the sport, let me convince you even further to go ahead.
No Age or Gender Requirement
Teenagers play it a lot. It is common to see parent-child team matches. Even senior citizens can enjoy the game!
This one is closely related to the first point. These days, it's not that easy to gather the family, even for meals. That will not be the case if the family can enjoy the same activity.
Can Be Played Anywhere
Ping pong gear is easy to acquire and maintain. Tables these days can also be folded or wheeled for easy storage. They also don't take up too much space so it can easily fit in a vacant corner.
Some tables can also be used and kept outdoors.
If you have joint problems or are prone to back, knees, or ankle injury, ping pong is the sport for you. It is not a contact sport so the risk of injury is very small.
Given my love for the sport, I can go on and on enumerating reasons why you should play it as well. For now, let me end this way: give it shot, and then let me know how it goes.
