News to Us: Ping Pong Open to All Students

Ping Pong is a sport some people may have played, but might not really know the ins and outs of.

For eighth grade social studies teacher Aaron Reckelhoff it is an activity he enjoys. Reckelhoff serves as the Ping Pong Club sponsor along with math teacher Adam Stroud.

The club does not only consist of teachers and students, there is also Jim Wooten and former guidance counselor Jim O’Connell, just a few of the outsiders who like to play ping pong also.

To join the club students simply show up on meeting nights, Monday and Thursday, after school until 5 p.m. in the cafeteria. Students are not required to stay the entire time.

“If you like it, ping pong dues are $5 which goes toward paddles, nets, tables and ping pong balls,” said Reckelhoff.

Ping pong is a unique sport that can be played by skilled and unskilled players

“Case and point I still lose to one of our community members who are 70,” said Reckelhoff.

For Stroud ping pong is an enjoyable activity.

“A hobby, competition, fun, exercise for the mind and body,” said Stroud

During practices the club basically plays and challenges each other to tournaments.  Students who have questions or comments, Reckelhoff and Stroud are more than happy to help and show them the rules and techniques of the game.

If you are interested in joining Ping Pong Club the practices will be on Mondays and Thursdays after school.

Juniors Cole Crawford and Austin Longest practice their ping pong skills.
