Table Tennis is probably derived from the game "Royal tennis," a popular Diversion in medieval days in Europe. In the 1880s, Table Tennis became a fashion social activity after dinner usually played by Upper-class people of England. Dinner tables function as play surfaces, a row of piled-up books will serve as "net," and the household will then act as rackets.
A quick look back at history found that David Foster created the first version of the game in 1890. Created in England, this indoor version also includes indoor versions of other favorite games. , such his football and cricket. Just a year later, London-based John Jacques introduced "Gossima." The game consisted of a 30 cm high net, paddles, and a small ball made of cork.
A Table Tennis enthusiast, James Gibb, discovered small balls in the United States in 1900 and returned to England with them. Some James Gibb credit sources for coining the name "Ping Pong." According to legend, the name comes from the noise of the ball hitting the paddles used in the game. John Jacques registered "Ping Pong" as an official name for the operation in 1901.

Finally, competitive games become fierce and players start experimenting with devices that try to speed up the game to make it more entertaining. British E.C. Goode more changed the game in 1902. Goode put pebbled rubber paddle he used to play with. This rubber has made it possible to put ball spin faster. This resulted in a significant speed in the game and the discovery also led to the production of rubber rackets that became the main type of racket Table Tennis until 1952.
Interested in the game began to weaken in Europe after a few years of extremely popular although a few groups of passionate Table Tennis keep the game alive in Eastern Europe. After a long decline, interest rates began to be rekindled in the early 1920s and during this period, the first set of standardized laws for Table Tennis was established in the UK. International Table Tennis Federation (ITTF) was established in Berlin in 1926 and consists of members from Czechoslovakia, Austria, Denmark, Germany, England, Hungary, India, Wales, and Sweden as founding members. ITTF also adopted British rules and used them for international matches, including one in Berlin in 1926 as the first international tournament.
In the 1920s and 1950s, Europe dominated sports. In 1952, Japanese player Jiroji Satoh became famous when using a wooden racket covered in sponge rubber and became the first person from outside Europe to win the championship. The year 1952 through 1970 was known as the era of sponge bat.
According to Table Tennis becoming more popular, China has become a dominant force in the international world of Table Tennis, and they have maintained that position even now.
In this case, will Table Tennis go in the future? As long as everyone in the world continues to enjoy table tennis and find exhilarating sports, there is no potential end of it. Perhaps it will be responsible for world peace or maybe it will be the first game we play with travelers from other planets or it will probably continue to be one of the most popular games on the world. Fine. But it is safe to say that Table Tennis will not be going anywhere soon after.
