Try your hand at table tennis
After 19 years of training in China, Yang Yun will have no problem teaching Americans how to play table tennis.
"You need to work on focus," he says. "It really depends on how fast your reaction is. If you loose focus for one second, two seconds, you miss the ball."
The indoor sport is easy to learn. Kids and adults can take lessons at the Austin Table Tennis Association. A monthly membership costs $50, but some people just play for the day.
"It's a constant learning experience, and no matter what age, you can have fun at the sport," Austin Table Tennis Association president Kenneth Beauchamp said.
Table Tennis has been around since the late 1800's, and it's growing in popularity.
"I know a lot of bars downtown, they set up table tennis, but that's a game --not a sport," Yun said.
He hopes Americans get as into the sport as people in China.
"Just change the concept and raise more kids to come," he says. "I wish table tennis could be, ya know, one of the favorite sports in the United State."
