Although there are 56 recognised ethnic groups by the Chinese government, the Han people make up the majority (an estimated 92% of the total Chinese population).

With about 300 million regular players, ping pong, also known as table tennis, is one of the most popular amateur sport in China.

Nowadays, Chinese youth prefer sports like basketball, volleyball, and badminton, but table tennis still reigns supreme among the country’s ageing population.

In Dear Asia, we also held Ping Pong nights with our students. It’s a great chance for people to play this beloved sport together, and making friends in the meantime.
