Ping Pong


It is believed that table tennis, or ping pong, had its origins in England at the end of the 1800’s.  Table tennis became popular in Europe in the 1920’s, and the ITTF - International Table Tennis Federation – was founded in 1926.  After that, the sport spread to Asia and became an Olympic event in 1988.  Countries that have dominated the sport include Japan, China, Sweden, South Korea, and France.
