Table tennis, as a sport, is so much more than Ping-Pong, a casual activity confined to basement play. It is arguably more mental than physical, yet still leaves players catching their breath and wiping sweat from their brows. It is not just something to do on a rainy day. Table tennis is an Olympic sport.” BY MARY KATE BRENNAN, Star-Ledger Staff
