I never really thought that an indoor game could be as exciting as playing a game outdoors, and so I never really showed that much interest in it. But, one day about a year ago, when one of my friends insisted that playing indoor table tennis was going to be really fun, I thought that it was worth giving a try.
Anyway, my friend knew very well that I have always loved playing table tennis. In fact, I even used to be a champion sometimes when playing in inter-school table tennis tournaments back in the days as a high school student. But, as I started my university years and then entered the professional world, I started to distance myself from all kinds of sports, including table tennis. Besides, finding a suitable table tennis playing partner wasn’t really that easy either, especially, when you are moving to new places and living there for professional reasons.
So, for a while, I thought that I had almost lost touch with my favourite sport until my friend one day told me that I could practice playing table tennis at an indoor facility which was not too far away from where I lived. Besides, there was an extra incentive to go and play table tennis in that indoor facility as the indoor facility authority was offering a specially designed t-shirt to every table tennis player. Apparently, they were trying to make indoor table tennis popular among the general population. So, finally, I went to that indoor facility and played my favourite game with a couple of amateur players who impressed and surprised me with their table tennis skills.
To tell you how much I enjoyed playing this game, I must say that I enjoyed playing that indoor game a lot since we won against a couple of players. Besides, it also allowed me to meet some rising table tennis stars in my country and learn important tips about table tennis from them. Besides, I also liked the fact that I was given a couple of nice T-shirts because of taking part in that game and winning it.

I would like to share an experience when I had a fantastic time playing an indoor game with some friends. It happened a few months ago during a weekend get-together.
We gathered at a friend's place, and after some deliberation, we decided to play a classic board game—Monopoly. The participants included four of my close friends, and we were all excited about revisiting this timeless game from our childhood.
The atmosphere was lively as we unfolded the game board, distributed the colourful currency, and chose our game pieces. The dice started rolling, and the competition became intense. What I enjoyed the most was not just the strategic aspects of the game but the banter, laughter, and friendly arguments that ensued. Monopoly has a way of bringing out the competitive spirit in a fun and light-hearted manner.
I can confidently say that I thoroughly enjoyed playing Monopoly on that particular occasion. It wasn't just about winning or losing; it was the friendship, the shared memories, and the simple joy of engaging in a classic game that made the experience memorable.
Playing Monopoly with friends on this occasion was a delightful indoor activity that not only provided entertainment but also allowed us to reconnect and enjoy each other's company.
