Table -Tennis, more informally known as Ping-Pong, is a sport that is amassing great followers all across India, especially in Maharashtra, Gujarat, West Bengal and Tamil Nadu. It is a challenging game which requires participants to be quick on their feet and react at a lightning fast speed in order to keep the ball rolling.
The simple rules of this game are that the two players, or the two teams with two players on either side, have to hit the light-weight ball across to the other side, which is separated by a net in the middle of the rectangular table. The ball must hit the other side at least once before the opposing team hits it back, abiding by the same rules. When these rules aren`t met, the team which couldn`t uphold them loses. Though the rule is simple, the game is highly complex since it requires great amount of coordination, dexterity and quick reaction time!
