Section: 01  
This course may be repeated for credit.

Table tennis (also known as ping-pong) is a racket sport derived from tennis but distinguished by its playing surface being on top of a stationary table, rather than a court on which players stand. Table tennis uses paddles, vs a stringed racket, a small hollow plastic ball, and a net. While played in basements the world over, this course will teach you how to play the sport competitively. It will address technique, strategy, and rules and we will learn how to play both singles and doubles. Table tennis is played in so many different settings from backyards at home to rec rooms at work, and from university all the way to the Olympics. This is the perfect course to learn the sport from scratch or hone existing skills for social events, networking opportunities, or the sheer fun of playing.

Basic paddles and balls will be provided. Non-marking shoes are required.
