Table Tennis

The game rules are pretty understandable. There are various tricks to the game with spins and stuff, spin helps to change the trajectory of the ball and hence confusing the opponent.

Table tennis was originated in Victorian England, and it was very popular. The older ping pong balls were 38mm and then were replaced by 40mm balls in the late 2000s. Because of that the balls air resistance increased and hence slowed down the game. The table should be 2.74m long and 1.525m wide and 76cm high. The basic rules of the games were that's the players should not allow the ball played to toward them with more than one bounce. The ball can oy touch the bat. The ball returned should land in the oponnents side only.
