Out of my extracurricular activities the one, that stands out for me is my sport, table tennis. My past nine years with table tennis have got me a lot more than just medallions, certificates, and awards. This sport taught me the significance of some of the most fundamental values in life- hard work, teamwork and leadership .I remember a match of the state team championship, my team was two matches down and one more loss would have resulted in team’s elimination, at that point I realized no matter how well ‘I’ play, and how fiercely I defeat my opponent, we are not going to win, unless we outperform them as a team. That’s what a team sport is all about, as a team member I don’t train day in and day out, just for my own sake but for the sake of my team. It is sport, which strings a diverse group of people together having nothing in common but a goal. My hard work and effort for the sport didn’t just culminate in making me an accomplished player but also made me an accomplished person.
