Table tennis, also known as ping pong played with ping pong ball and whiff-whaff, is a sport in which two or four players hit a lightweight ball, also known as the ping-pong ball, back and forth across a table using small rackets… The table tennis official rules are specified in the ITTF handbook.

Looking for good quality ping pong and table tennis accessories online? Normally, people buy other stuff but forget about the quality of the most important member of any table tennis game – the ball. Thanks to the internet and other technological advancement, we can easily understand the different types of arcade game equipment and what to look out for.
The official material used in table tennis balls was changed from celluloid to plastic, a material free of celluloid, in 2014.
Celluloid is a thermoplastic made from nitrocellulose and camphor. Sometimes dyes and stabilizers are added. A typical ping pong ball might consist of 70% to 80% nitrocellulose, with up to 30% camphor. Small amounts of dye, ethanol, and stabilizers make the ball colorful, more stable, and less flammable.
Since the diameter of a ball is about 38 mm, this leaves a little over 1 mm clearance for the ping-pong ball in the tube.
Official tournament table tennis balls are 40mm in diameter (1.57 inch)… The 40mm only became the standard after the 2000 Sydney Olympics, and some players still prefer 38mm balls. If you’re playing with friends or recreationally, try both 38mm and 40mm balls and see which you prefer.
