I have inquired into health benefits of table tennis. I know personally that I came into much better shape when playing (and only playing) table tennis three times per week. Of course, I do not mean basement ping pong with your paddle in one hand and a beer in the other; but table tennis training. I have been to many recreation centres and clubs and noticed a great amount of seniors playing the game as well who were all in great health and playing with excellent energy. As well as having proper fitness for the body, Dr. Daniel Amen, a child and adult psychiatrist, brain imaging specialist and award winning writer for his research, says that regular exercise boosts hormones that keep your brain young. And, there are studies that show that exercise increases the circulation to the brain that promotes cell health. This makes table tennis is one of the top sports to play. So what is the table tennis foil? Is it health benefits? We all know how much people love pain and aggression and fighting and deaths and all that good stuff. And unfortunately, table tennis is in the baby pool in comparison. What people don't realize is that when table tennis is played properly, it is one of the more physically demanding sports. The stamina, strength, and agility needed in order to maintain ten minutes of training is astounding. It's a full body workout, like an aerobics class. In a recent study, Dr. Amen argues in his book, "Making a Good Brain Great," that playing table tennis can increase brain activity. Amen calls table tennis the best brain sport. It improves hand-eye coordination, is aerobic, uses both the upper and lower body, and causes you to use many different areas of the brain to function. In an article entitled, "Stupidity and the brain," (2004), Dr. Amen says, "Golf is good. Tennis is terrific. Table tennis is the best sport in the world!" while referring to the similarities between a severe car accident and a hard hit in football in relations to the impact on the brain. So if you're a child, adult, or senior, looking for something fun and extremely healthy for your body and brain, take up table tennis.

Both could be correct. One is a question - How long have you been playing tennis? One is a statement - You have been playing tennis.
