Sydney: Actress Susan Sarandon has opened up her business venture into the world of table tennis.

Sarandon, 63, helped launch Spin, a bar devoted to the sport of ping-pong, in New York, and the chain is now expanding throughout America and into Dubai.

She revealed that she enjoys playing the sport and finds it a great way to relax after shooting a movie.

She also jokingly said she hopes the sport traditionally perceived as nerdy could be hip.

“We’re kind of embracing the dorkiness with a sense of humour. Dorky can also be cool,” a news daily quoted her as saying.
