Beijing Ping Pong Park

So you thought they practiced Kung Fu on every street corner in China eh? Not so. There are lots of parks around China, mostly for gathering and working out in groups around one shared interest or another. This one is specifically a ping pong park. Not all of them are welcoming to just anyone and in fact this one is fenced off; maybe to keep people like me out. I couldn’t hang with them anyway. That’s some serious ping pong going on there. Strangely, I didn’t come across any parks like this in Shanghai or any other cities in China, but I saw a few like this in Beijing. All of the tables are in excellent shape too so maybe they take them inside when it rains? I don’t know, but they definitely take it seriously.
