Table tennis is played between two players (singles) or four players (doubles). Players use solid paddles to hit a small white ball back and forth across a table divided by a low net. Players take turns to hit five serves in a row, and win a point if their opponent fails to return the ball. The first player to reach 21 points wins the game.
