About Table Tennis

Table Tennis, or ping-pong, originated in Britain in the 1880's where it was played by the upper classes as an after dinner game, and was commonly known as 'wiff-waff'.TABLE TENNIS MASTER LOGO AW CMYK

In table tennis, either two or four players hit a lightweight, hollow ball back and forth using small bats. Rules stipulate that the ball must bounce once on the recipients side of the net, and again on the other side once they return it to the opponent. Play is very fast and requires speedy reactions.

Points are scored for various actions within the rally, and the first player to reach 11 points wins the game, with matches typically made up of either the best of five or seven games.

Table tennis is governed by the Table Tennis England, and details can be found on their website.
