The true story of the amazing 1902 Ping Pong craze in America. A perfume named Ping Pong? Ping Pong in half a dozen different Broadway shows? Ping Pong cigarettes, a Ping Pong dance, Ping Pong soap and Ping Pong Juice? It's starting to sound like Dr. Seuss! Twin babies named Ping and Pong? Ping Pong balls used to mail letters? Ping Pong on a train? Ping Pong on the brain!
Welcome to 1902 America. A new game with a funny name is changing lives. There is no escaping the epidemic, spreading uncontrollably from family to family, infiltrating every town and hamlet in the nation.
Full of rich period detail, this lively romp examines who is playing---from the famous to the farmer to the athlete---and the effect of the madness on every sphere of daily living---fashion, romance, humor, health and more. Tournament champions included the day's top lawn tennis players.
And for the first time anywhere: Who really invented Ping Pong?
Illustrated with over 400 photos, drawings and cartoons from the 1902 era.
Oh, a warning: You, too, will catch PING PONG FEVER.
But you will also catch yourself smiling a lot.
