The name 'Ping-Pong' was invented by the English firm J. Jaques and Son at the end of the 1800s and later trademarked in the USA by Parker Brothers, a board game company.
Ping-Pong is still a trademark name for table tennis and associated equipment.
The game began in the 1880s, when lawn tennis players adapted their game to play indoors during the winter.
The game quickly caught on, and as early as 1901, tournaments were being conducted with over 300 participants andthe Ping-Pong Association was formed but was renamed The Table Tennis Association in 1922 and also in 1922, the All England Club was formed.
Table tennis takes place on the First (1st), Third (3rd) & Fourth (4th) Wednesdays monthly.
Please be aware there is no Table Tennis on the second (2nd) week of the month.
