Table Tennis (also known as ping pong) uses a small lightweight ball and a small racket.
Matches are played as singles against a one opponent or on teams of two where the objective is to hit the ball over the net and have it land on the oppositions playing area without them returning it. Table Tennis requires skill and technique with the racket and quick and precise movements around the table.
Training is typically skill-based with players practicing forehand and backhand shot, offensive and defensive strokes and the ability to apply spin to the ball.
Agility and cardiovascular training is often implemented to complements the skill-based training and supplementing with a high-quality protein source after training will promote lean muscle growth and aid recovery.
