Here in Ireland and the UK we call it table tennis, TBF ping pong sounds better.

1968 here and I have to say Newman looks like he knows what a gym is - he's not huge or anything but he is most definitely in shape!

Cool picture of two cool actors from the 'set' of a cinema classic.

This was in taken in 1968 by photographer and author Lawrence Schiller at the hotel where the stars staying in Mexico, during the filming of “Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid,” (1969).

Schiller was hired by director George Roy Hill to photograph many scenes of the actors throughout the filming. When the film was cut, many of Schiller’s shots were used in montage sequences.
