Quotes from the episode about the health benefits of table tennis:

"It's a lot of fun, whole-body exercise, we play for two hours and don't get tired because we enjoy it." - Zeeghan

"For me, it's very good for my health. It lowered my cholesterol a lot. I was on the borderline for so many years, but once I started (playing table tennis) last summer, at my last checkup, I went back to normal." - Joe
