 Another sport in which I can excel!!

Table tennis first showed up in England in 1890 as a sport for the wealthy people. It became popular in the 1920s. The sport is also called "Ping Pong" because of the sound the ball makes when it hits the table.

To play table tennis you need a table with a net, ball and a racket. You score a point by hitting it on the opponent's side without them being able to hit it back to you. You can also get a point if the ball hits the other player's body, bounces twice before the other player can get to it, if the other player hits the ball off the table without it touching your side or can't get it over the net. The player who scores 11 points first wins a set. The athlete who wins the most sets is the game's winner!

Table Tennis became an Olympic sport in 1988. In the Olympic games, table tennis includes four disciplines; men's singles, women's singles, men's doubles, and women's doubles.
