About: Table tennis, also known as ping pong, is a sport in which two or four players hit a lightweight ball back and forth across a table using a small paddle like the ones in the picture featured in today's free puzzle. The sport originated in Victorian England, where it was played among the upper-class as an after-dinner parlour game. The name "ping-pong" was in wide use before British manufacturer J. Jaques & Son Ltd trademarked it in 1901. The name "ping-pong" then came to describe the game played using the rather expensive Jaques's equipment, with other manufacturers calling it table tennis. Table tennis was introduced as an Olympic sport at the Olympics in 1988. Puzzle Of The Day On:
