A delightful story -- I can almost hear the bouncing ping pong balls! This one reads like a winner.

What a Dad! I could see him gleefully parrying until the sons beat him, and then being more than delighted with them. Well told

Unique and entertaining. A fun read.

I loved this, 'cause my dad, too, was a ping-pong champ. And your story is absolutely right--playing the best only made me better. (My teenage boys still can't believe I can beat them.)

There were a few grammar/punctuation errors, but all in all this is written very well.

Very entertaining.

Marvelous! You hooked me and kept my interest. A great read. It was neat to see how much the ping pong table changed their lives and brought them together.

I love the image of the father working two jobs to support the family, yet realizing the importance of sharing his passion with his children. Great life lessons learned.

I really enjoyed the competitive spark the Dad instilled in his kids. The competitiveness mirrored the ping and pong of the ball going back and forth across the table. The idea that it was passed down to further generations brought the story further home. Great writing.
