Table Tennis Tips

A real low and short no-spin serve can give you some easy points in matches, as they are difficult to flip hard, and they require good timing to push hard. Mix it up with a heavy backspin in the same spot. Remember to get it short, the ball should bounce short on your side close to the net...

 History of table tennis:

It is estimated that Table Tennis or Ping Pong began as a social hobby in England toward the end of the 1800s. The game was played with wooden bats or paddles and cork balls, usually on dining room tables, and was referred to as ping-pong, gossima or flim-flam. Early in the 1900s pimpled rubber were used on the bats or paddles and celluloid balls were introduced. It wasn’t until around the 1920s that the game gained some popularity in Europe, and started to refer to it as table tennis.

The International Table Tennis Association (ITTF) was formed in 1926. Soon after that the sport spread to Japan and other Asian countries.

Japan dominated the sport for most of the 50s and 60s, but the Chinese slowly started to catch up. Eventually the Chinese started to dominate the sport and continued to do so for most of the late 60s and 70s. It wasn’t until 1980 when table tennis became an Olympic event. After this the game became popular in other countries like Sweden and South Korea, and many other countries followed.
