Table tennis, predominantly known as Ping Pong, is a fast moving racquet sport requiring exceptional hand-eye coordination. Men and Women play either as individuals or in pairs and win points by hitting a lightweight ball over a net so that their opponents can't return it or are forced into an error. The game came into existence in the early 1900s in England where it was played among the upper-class people as an after-dinner game. The global governing body of Table Tennis is International Table Tennis Federation (ITTF) which was founded in 1926.
