    Beijing on Saturday 20th June 2009; China’s biggest table tennis event
    was held.

    More than 10,000 table tennis enthusiasts gathered.
    It was part of a drive to encourage people to invest in a healthier
    lifestyle being organised next to the National Stadium, the now famous
    Bird’s Nest; the focal point of the 2009 Olympic Games;

    Staged in the splendid grounds with more than 1,000 table tennis tables were in use!

    Olympic Women’s Singles gold medalist, Deng Yaping, one of China’s all
    time favorite table tennis stars participated in the huge event; hoping
    that through events such as these people would see that exercise can
    also be fun.

    think what we should think about how we can encourage people to
    participate in sport, especially with nationwide fitness programmes",

    make friends by playing table tennis and they have fun."

    tennis for a long time, I have never been to such a big event" said Wu
    Huimin, a Beijing resident who felt honoured to play in such a major
    event. "I am very happy right now; I hope to participate in such events
    more often; I am excited.
