Southern People Weekly. Zhang Jike and the Chinese Team want more people to engage in table tennis but it is not for everyone. 

As the leading team in table tennis, the Chinese Team has been giving their efforts in promoting table tennis not just domestically but also internationally. As of now, the Grand Slam champion Zhang Jike is the most famous player and Liu Guoliang has tasked him to take the lead in this endeavour. 

"Table tennis is extremely popular in China. But in terms of its international influence, there is still some gap compared to other big sports. I hope that there would be more people who would participate in the table tennis sport." Zhang Jike said. 

However, when asked about what are his expectations on his future offspring or offsprings? Zhang Jike answered: 

"Offsprings is a relatively distant topic. If I have to consider it, first of all, I will not allow him to choose the sport table tennis. From my own experience, it is extremely hard."
