Table tennis, also known as ping pong, is a sport in which two or four players hit a small, light ball back and forth across a net. The game can be played on any flat surface but is most commonly on a table tennis table.
The game of table tennis originated in England in the early 1800s and was initially known as “wiff-waff.” The game’s popularity increased rapidly in the late 1800s and early 1900s, with tournaments held in various countries.
The first official table tennis tournament was held in 1926, and the sport has been included in the Olympic Games since 1988.
Table tennis is a relatively simple sport to learn and can be enjoyed by people of all ages and abilities. The game can be played competitively or just for fun, making it ideal for social gatherings and family outings.
