Badminton and Table Tennis

Moving to China, we thought the big sports would be baseball and soccer.  I’d sort of forgotten that badminton and (especially) table tennis are huge Chinese Olympic sports.  Showing up, it turns out basketball is the really big sport here.  But there is still plenty of soccer and B’s school’s gym is decked out with a room full of table tennis tables and a large room for badminton.  While PS and I were at Young Womens the other night, B took the boys to dinner, bought badminton and table tennis supplies and took the boys to check out the gym.  I’m cheating by putting pictures together from a few different days.  We’ve been back again as a family and I’ve sent the boys over on their own a few times.  They have a routine where they check the different fields and courts around campus to see if there are any open so they can go use them.  The problem with a campus where a lot of the students live on campus is that even after school is out, the school grounds aren’t empty.
