Table Tennis

Table tennis is sometimes referred to as ping pong due to the sound the ball makes when it hits a surface.

It is a sport which can be played by two or four players like tennis. The players hit a lightweight, hollow ball to each other using 'bats'.

The game takes place on a hard table divided by a small net.

Players must allow a ball played towards them only one bounce on their side of the table and must return it so that it bounces on the opposite side.

Points are scored when a player fails to return the ball within the rules. Play is fast and demands quick reactions.

A variety of skills can be used when playing such as putting a spin on the ball.

Table tennis was first incorporated into the Asian Games in 1958.

List of disciplines

  • Table Tennis

Table Tennis began as an after-dinner game, played by upper-class English families. It is now the world’s biggest participation sport, with 40 million competitive players. Table Tennis has come a long way from its beginnings in the 19th century, when cigar boxes and carved champagne corks were used as bats and balls.

Today’s top players use high-tech rackets, hitting the ball at speeds of more than 100mph (160kph).
