Ping Ponging

Schools should start offering another sport: Ping Pong.

Along with all the other sports offered, all middle and upper schools should add Table Tennis for girls and boys, together. Each team would have three singles and two doubles teams. Each match would be two-out-of-three games, with one point awarded for each game won.

Unlike most of the other school sports which are quite injury-prone, being on a Table Tennis Team would provide high levels of competition with little chance of injury. Equipment costs are minimal. State champion teams could go on to national tournaments. Our top national teams could then go on to compete with the Chinese.
