Despite the Engrish subtitle of “Ping Pong Boring,” this clip is anything but dull. In it, you’ll see table tennis players use their precision aim to perform a variety of trick shots, and just generally being silly. Also, we might have to try that fishing line trick.
In this clip from an old USA vs. Canada 9-ball tourney, America’s Jeremy Jones did a great job hiding the cue ball. But it wasn’t good enough, as Alain Martel found a crazy way to extract the cue ball and set up another shot.
With such a small playing field countering a smash in table tennis takes lightning quick reflexes. Or you could just have massive amounts of luck and style. His opponent’s reaction says it all.
Check out the precision in this extraordinary ping pong trick shot from Josep Antón Velázquez. His serves must have the perfect amount of spin, speed, height and placement to pass through the holes of the wood to finish the trick. Bravo, sir.
