Chess on Ice, as some call it, was invented in Scotland more than 500 years ago.
TULSA - You know the game.
And you know the sound.
But you don't dare call it Ping Pong, especially when you're around the members of the Tulsa Table Tennis Club.
"Ping Pong is what you do at home. It's a recreational sport, just kind of for fun. Table Tennis - that's a sport. You gotta be trained for it. You gotta work out for it. You gotta have a coach. You gotta get your strokes right, your footwork. How to move in order to compete at the Olympic level, at the highest level," said club president Kelly Boyce.
These guys take this sport very seriously.

So, I gave it a shot. I was paired up with a guy named Alex. It should go without saying but, Alex is good. Very good.
He skunked me 11-0 in back to back games. But I finally got his number in the third game and scored my first point. Nobody scores 25 straight points against me!
In all seriousness though, despite how good Alex is, he said the players in London are even that much better than him.
"They could beat us 11-to-nothing. Any day. Just a whole different world. Even though we play a lot, even though we're pretty good, they're just that much better," said Alex.
After hanging out with these guys for one afternoon, all I can say is, this is definitely not Ping Pong!

You're out on an icy island, being attacked by hard rubber disks that are frozen before games to make them even harder.
In 2012, Big Al and Cayden McFarland tried their hand at some of the more popular summer game events. Two years later, they're back giving the winter games a go
Tulsan Hans Helmrich has been a sports fan all his life. So you could imagine his excitement when at age 13, he was picked to be a ball-boy for the USA Men's basketball team for the Olympics.
Shots from the top of the key. Shots from behind the backboard. Shots that were bounced off the floor. Ivory Latta of the Tulsa Shock simply couldn't miss!
The 100-meter dash pits the world's eight fastest men together as they race for the title of "World's Fastest Man." That's not something Big Al nor I will be confused with. But it didn't stop us from trying!
The cable ratings for archery were huge and some attribute the sport's rise in popularity to the recent The Hunger Games movie.
The sport of high jump changed forever back in 1968. That's when Dick Fosbury came up with the jump that bears his name - the Fosbury Flop. So, that begs the question, can Big Al and Cayden pull it off?
The backstroke looks like it's a nice leisurely stroke, with the opportunity to possibly catch some rays at the same time. Not quite.
