Table tennis pro uses phone instead of paddle

Friday February 20th, 2015

Ping pong–sorry, table tennis–is a pretty difficult game. The paddle is small, the playing surface is small, the ball is small. Still, pro players manage to make it look easy. 

This pro, a guy from New Zealand named Matt Hetherington, decided to show off and use his cell phone for a paddle. He even took things a step further and used just the phone's battery.

He says he might try using a wooden spoon next.
