FOX 13’s Dave Nemeth found that table tennis was a popular activity among boomers and older adults.

The game of table tennis is more than 125 years old. It began as a parlor game and has since become the most popular racquet sport in the world. More than 10 million players compete in sanctioned tournaments each year.

Physically, the game is not too taxing, yet it is good aerobic exercise. It keeps the mind sharp, the reflexes quick, plus it’s a great way to socialize.

Dave tried his hand at the game.

See how he fared in the video above.
