Table TennisTable tennis is like lawn tennis but played on a table and indoors most of the time. It can be played by two solo players or two players to a team and the rules differ a little for both. The game involves the challenge of containing the ball in the limited space and within the boundaries of the 9x5 feet table. Though Ping-Pong or TT can be seen as a social or informal game, the game that is played competitively or for points is a game of strategy and quick movement. If you’ve never given the game a go, getting involved in a game with experienced players can leave you spinning in circles, but it’s a quick way to catch on to different strategies players use to win points. Some tactics involve slow or fast play, imparting a spin to the ball, or using timed drop shots when your opponent is far from the net. It requires fast and agile movement with your feet and improves your reflexes as you are forced to think quickly at all times. And it’s not just your feet you need to keep alive; you need to summon the power of all your senses to keep up with the speedy mind and muscular coordination it demands.
