Never having played it much, I always thought of table tennis as more of a game that even the most out-of-shape could play, akin to pool or golf, than as a physically demanding sport. But then, during the 2004 Olympics, I watched a women’s match on television, and despite being young and fit-looking both of the players were literally dripping with sweat. Clearly, at the highly competitive levels at least, table tennis is a “real” physical sport.
Actually, I don’t play at a highly competitive level, but I can still break a sweat during a game. But it’s true that you can also play it at a more mellow level. It’s nice when a sport can appeal to people at vary different levels of ability.
