Ping pong, or table tennis, is a game that was invented in England during the Victorian era. After supper, affluent people used to play table tennis. Initially, the game involved stacking books in the middle of a table and hitting a golf ball with them. Table tennis requires a lot of focus and quickness.
On a hard table divided by a net, professional table tennis is played. Players strike a light ball across the table with a small, round bat while standing opposite each other. Ball spinning greatly reduces the likelihood of hitting the ball. Therefore, before serving the ball to the opponent, players will spin the ball.
There are singles and doubles games in table tennis. The game is played in the men's and women's divisions. The International Table Tennis Federation has established the regulations for playing table tennis (ITTF).
