About Table Tennis

Table tennis is famously called Ping-Pong and it is a ball game similar in rule to lawn tennis which is played on a flat table that has two equal courts divided by a net fixed in the middle. The game has its origin in England in the early days of the 20th century with the name Ping-Pong. It got its new name as table tennis in 1921–22. Table tennis equipment is relatively simple and inexpensive. The table is rectangular, 9 by 5 feet (2.7 by 1.5 meters), and its upper surface is a level plane 30 inches (76 cm) above the floor. The net is 6 feet (1.8 meters) long, and its upper edge along the whole length is 6 inches (15.25 cm) above the playing surface.
