Default Anyone Else Play Table Tennis Competitively?

I live in the US, which doesn't put much emphasis on Table Tennis (not to be confused with "ping-pong" ), but I know in lots of other countries many people play it. I am ranked at about 1600 USATT, and my home club is the FCTTC in Colorado. Lets see... I use a butterfly Sriver G2 on forehand, Sriver EL on backhand with a butterfly firehand blade. I primarily prefer a defensive/high lob stategy but occasionally will attack with my backhand or loop with my forehand.

Anyone else play the sport and what style of play do you prefer?
Or anyone interested in starting to play?

I literally have absolutely no idea what any of the plays or strategies are called, but I do know that my dad once won second place in a national competition, and he taught me everything I know about the sport... except of course, he never actually gave names to the plays or strategies. He just showed me an action, and I repeated.

But yes, I'm quite competitive.

Nice, I'm glad someone else here plays some table tennis. Congratulations for your dad winning a tournament! There are all sorts of USATT tournaments out there with different levels of competition and ranking-based brackets...I have not yet won anything on that level, but maybe one day...
