Ping Pong

Ping Pong or Table Tennis?

Two names, One game…

There is absolutely no difference between table tennis and ping pong.

Ping Pong was a parlor game played by the British upper class more than 150 years ago. Many sports manufacturers tried promoting it with different names such as: whiff-whaff, flim-flam, punch ball and pim-pam. 

In 1901, sports manufacturer John Jacques, who sold table tennis equipment, came up with a different name: ping-pong. And that’s how the history was made.
