This game was first played in Victorian England. Among the 1860s or 1870s, it has been shifted by British military officers in India. The next major innovation was by James W. Gibb, who discovered novelty celluloid balls on a trip to the US in 1901 and found them to be ideal for the game. An unofficial world championship was held in 1902.

In 1921, the Table Tennis Association was founded, and in 1926 renamed the English Table Tennis Association. Table tennis was introduced as an Olympic sport at the Olympics in 1988. After the 2000 Olympics in Sydney, the ITTF instituted several rule changes that were aimed at making table tennis more viable as a televised spectator sport. The ITTF states that all events after July 2014 are played with a new poly material ball.

Ball:The international rules specify that the game is played with a sphere having a mass of 2.7 grams. Balls are now made of a polymer instead of celluloid as of 2015, colored white or orange, with a matte finish.

Table:The table is 2.74 m (9.0 ft) long, 1.525 m (5.0 ft) wide, and 76 cm (2.5 ft) high.The table or playing surface is uniformly dark colored and matte, divided into two halves.
Racket/paddlePlayers are equipped with a laminated wooden racket covered with rubber on one or two sides depending on the grip of the player. The ITTF uses the term "racket" though "bat" is common in Britain, and "paddle" in the U.S. and Canada. Current rules state that, unless damaged in play, the racket cannot be exchanged for another racket at any time during a match.

Following are the rules which must be followed while playing tennis:
1)A match is played best 3 of 5 games (or 4/7 or 5/9). For each game, the first player to reach 11 points wins that game, however, a game must be won by at least a two-point margin.
2)Each player serves two points in a row and then switch server. However, if a score of 10-10 is reached in any game, then each server serves only one point and then the server is switched. After each game, the players switch sides of the table. In the final game (ie 5th game), the players switch sides again after either player reaches 5 points.
3)The ball must rest on an open hand palm. Then it must be tossed up at least 6 inches and struck so the ball first bounces on the server's side and then the opponent's side.
4)The paddle should have a red and a black side. The ball should be either orange or white and 40 mm in size. The table should be 2.74 meters long, 1.525 m wide, and 0.76 m high.
