Where did the sport start?
Table Tennis originated in England in the 1880's as an after dinner amusement for upper class Victorians. The game was based on the popular sport tennis except this time creating it in an indoor environment.
Originally the game was constructed out of objects found lying around the house such as a line of books for a net. As the game grew in popularity the first rackets began appearing, these were often pieces of stretched paper over a frame. It was the sound of the ball as it hit the racket which gave the game its first nicknames 'whiff-waff' and 'ping-pong'.
As time has progressed we have seen table tennis become a popular sport which has many players all around the world. Today the equipment used is very different, new materials used mean that the game is much quicker and players skills are much more advanced. In fact the game is so much quicker that rules have been brought in by the International Table Tennis Federation disallowing the use of several bats as they cause the ball to spin and move too fast.
