Table tennis is a secret boom at nightlife spots in Tokyo. Not only in Shibuya, Shinjuku, Ikebukuro and Kichijoji, but also in Gotanda, where the Enuchi editorial department is located, you will see signs such as "table tennis pub," "table tennis bar," and "table tennis lounge." You can relieve the stress of work by moving your body with table tennis or darts while drinking alcohol.
But if you can relieve the stress of work with table tennis, why not go to the table tennis bar and play table tennis at work? Furthermore, if you work while playing table tennis, you may be stressed in the first place.
When I was thinking about it as a flower garden in my head, I found a product called "Table Tennis Notebooks". This is a stationery that was born to play table tennis. A set of 3 notebooks for easily enjoying table tennis at work or school.
"Table Tennis Notebooks" is a notebook with 50 texts (100 pages). It is a product with ordinary specifications to use as stationery.
But besides this notebook and stationery, it has another function. "Table Tennis Notebooks" are sold as a set of three, two of which can be used as a table tennis racket and the other can be placed on the table and used as a net. A score table is also included, so you can enjoy authentic (?) Table tennis.
When you enjoy "playing table tennis" using a desk or table, most of the rackets are uchiwaya, hot pot, slippers, blackboard eraser, and slippers. But for example, the surface of the "uchiwa" is so smooth that you can't rotate the sphere.
However, rubber is pasted on the cover of "Table Tennis Notebooks", which makes it possible to attack the ball with a strong rotation. As a result, it has become possible to deal with cases such as "a battle between former table tennis clubs". Also, it seems that you can hold it with a shake hand or a pen holder.
It is sold on the UK mail order site Suck UK. According to SuckUK, using "Table Tennis Notebooks" as stationery at company meetings will stimulate conversations, stimulate discussions, and generate new ideas (?) As if you were ping-pong. That's right. And if the meeting gets stuck, you can use it as a table tennis racket and create epoch-making ideas while enjoying table tennis (??).

The price is $ 20.40. A separate shipping fee of $ 30 to Japan is required. When converted to Japanese yen, it is a little higher at about 6,000 yen including shipping. But if this gives you a groundbreaking idea, maybe it's cheap?
