Sample Answer-

If I dig deep inside me, I would probably say that Table Tennis is my favourite sport. I started playing it at the age of 10 or 11. Table tennis is also known as ping pong in some countries wherein either two or four players hit a small plastic ball with a wooden racquet across the table, i.e., on the opposing player’s side in a back and forth motion.

I don’t get much time to play or even watch it online or on television. I used to play it quite frequently when I was in school. But now, I play it once or twice a year in a sports complex near my house. But this has not reduced my skills or passion for this game at all.

To play this game, there is a wooden table of substantial size which has a net in the middle of it. Any one player has to serve the ball with one tip on his/her side and another tip on the other side of the net. After this, both the players have to hit the ball directly only on the other side of the net and not on his/her own side. If any player is unable to hit the ball on the other side, he/she loses one point.

The reasons why I like this sport are twofold. This game requires decent reflexes and an attention span as the speed of ball increases with every shot. Table tennis also keeps me on edge by providing me with the adrenaline rush and excitement every time I pick up the racquet.
