Table tennis is one of the skills that I specialise in. As some may know, I go to table tennis sessions every Tuesday (6:00pm-7:00pm), Thursday (6:00-8:00) and Friday (6:00-6:45); Tuesdays and Thursdays at Farnborough Academy, and Fridays at Rushcliffe Academy. In my opinion, table tennis is a great sport and I would recommend it to many people. In fact, if you would like to learn a little bit more about table tennis, I would happily provide you with some facts and rules:
- If the ball touches the table surface, it is declared in, and you will receive a point.
- If you return the ball, however it doesn’t bounce upon your opponents side, you will lose a point.
- When serving, the ball must be projected upwards at least 16 cm upwards.
- After your serve, the table tennis ball must hit your table and then your rival’s table.
- The oldest table tennis player is called Dorothy de Low, and she was 97 years old when she represented Australia at the XIV World Veterans Table Tennis Championships, at Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on 25th May 2008.
- The youngest Olympic table tennis medallist is Mima Ito, who at 15 years won a bronze medal at the 2016 Olympic Games, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on 16th August 2016.
- The longest table tennis rally lasted 8 hrs, 40 mins and 5 seconds, and it was played by Daniel Ives and Peter Ives at the Plumstead Radical Working Men’s Club in London, UK, on the 23rd March 2014.
