Table Tennis Equipment Market – Positive Outlook for Industry Opportunities & Trends for Expansion in 2018

Table tennis originated in the U.K. It is a sport similar in concept to royal tennis, played indoor by two or four players on a hard table. The table is generally dark in color; edged with white stripes; and divided by a tennis net which cuts the table into half its width. In some parts of the world, table tennis is also called Ping-Pong. The objective of table tennis is to hit the lightweight, hollow, celluloid or plastic ball above the net; rebound it in the half of the court closest to the player; and then bounce one time on other player’s side of the table in such a way that the opponent will not able to return it correctly. The ball is propelled backward and forward across the net by a small, rubber-covered, wooden bat known as racket or paddle. The game is popular all over the world and its matches are organized in large numbers in most countries as a competitive sport, especially in Europe and Asia, particularly Japan and China.
