Table Tennis on Ice!
When the Victorians invented Ping-Pong as an after dinner parlour game i bet that they never thought that it would become as popular as it did, would not be played outside and most certainly no played on top of a frozen lake in the middle of winter in Finland, but here we are in 2016 and two ingenious (or bored) Finnish Table Tennis players have decided to go ahead, strap on the ice skates and give it a go. We believe they may be the first, but feel free to let us know if you know of others that have done this.
It does not look quite like it is as much fun as regular old table tennis and you will definitely have to be a really good ice skater to make sure you’re in the right place at the right time to get those tricky shots.
Whilst these two Finnish guys do not appear as if they are going to win any ice skating or table tennis awards any time soon, they do get some really nice shots and table tennis rallies going.
Personally we here at the Terrific Sports offices think we will be sticking with regular old ping pong in the office and we really doubt we will see table tennis ping pong becoming a future winter olympic sport, but if you fancy giving it a go you will need to find some ice, ice skates, a table tennis table, some table tennis bats and some ping pongs. Once you have everything go ahead and give it a go and let us know of the results.
