Ping Pong is a fun sport, but bringing a whole ping pong table just to play it is inconvenient. This instructable shows you how you can bring ping pong in a little bag.

Step 1: Materials/Tools

Materials
2 empty toilet paper rolls
Plastic mesh
1 Ping pong ball
2 ping pong paddles
A few small heavy rocks

Tools
Scissors
Hot glue gun
Tape

Step 2: Net Weights

Fold both toilet paper rolls so that they are square cylinders. Cut about two centimeters both sides (cut on the fold lines!). Fold the flaps down toward the center and make each one one top of another but also under different one. Drop the rocks in and do the same to the top. To make it stay folded, you can tape it down.

Step 3: Actual Net

Cut a strip of the plastic mesh that's a bit longer than a regular foldable table. Tape the ends to your weights.

Step 4: Bottom of the Weights

Use the hot glue to make four dots on each corner of the weights on the bottom and one in the center. Make sure they are on the same side!

Step 5: Play Time!

All you need now is the paddles and a ping pong ball and you're ready to play!

    Yep, no need to set up a giant table to play it at home or only get to play it when the hotel provides the table!
