General information about Table Tennis
Table tennis is a sport that can be enjoyed by individuals of any age and physical ability. Top table tennis players are some of the greatest athletes in the world, yet it is enjoyed by millions of disabled persons and folks in retirement homes. Playing table tennis is a great way to stimulate the brain and promote quick thinking, and it improves hand-eye coordination. Table tennis is a low-injury prone sport that keeps one fit and flexible, without putting severe stress on joints. Playing table tennis increases one's agility and flexibility, and most of all their reaction time. On a professional level, a table tennis player has to react to the ball, move up to five feet, and do a full body swing in order to return the shot, all in less than half a second!
Table tennis is the most popular racket sport in the world.

It is enjoyed by millions of families across the world, and over 20 million play table tennis recreationally in the US alone, most of them in their teens to young adulthood.

It is also one of the most inexpensive sports to play.
