Celebrate Some Quality Alone Time With a DIY Ping Pong Table for One

It’s almost summer, so that means it’s time to go outside and play with your friends. Basketball, baseball, and badminton will be at every park you drive past. But what if you enjoy the indoors, regardless of how much the sunshine is out? What if you want to just play a relaxing game of ping pong, but all your pals want to enjoy the weather?

There’s some good news, thanks to The Q. Their most recent YouTube video gives you the step-by-step process for making a ping pong table where YOU are your own opponent.

Table Build

The process looks pretty easy. After measuring and cutting a wood plank to the right specifications, the wood is covered in masking tape. After a little spray paint, the masking tape is removed to reveal the table boundaries (although…how do you call out of bounds on yourself? That is one heck of an honors system). A few more pieces of wood, some glue, and an Allen screw later, you have yourself your own ping pong table, without having to scour the neighborhood for someone to play against.

Ping Pong

I admit this does look pretty fun. How many times have you been just sitting around throwing a ball up in the air or twirling your keys around? This at least will help your coordination during your bored times.

You can check out more cool projects from the Q on their YouTube channel here.

So what do you think? Are you ready to spend hours playing ping pong alone? What other games would you like to play without the hassle of “others”? Let me know on Twitter or sound off in the comments below.
