Curious where you all play, with whom, and how often. I'm in L.A and go to a local club to train and play matches, and occasionally play tournaments.
I've played since I could barely see over the table, with my parents and sisters, then with friends, then with my future wife! It's a great game for all ages (my dad is 92 and still plays!) because virtually anyone can play regardless of size, shape, skill level, gender, income, religion, language, or geography. It's a great brain sport too, apparently, with studies from Japan suggesting it can ward off dementia because of all the mental activity involved!
(Here we are in Bali, stumbling upon a beach table - a perfect day!) 🌴🏓
