Table tennis is one of the most popular sports in the world in terms of player numbers, as well as being one of the newest of the major sports. Table tennis is a sport where two or four players hit a ball back and forth to each other, with a racket on a table, in a manner similar to tennis. The rules are slightly different, but the concept is essentially the same. Table tennis is an Olympic sport; "Ping-Pong" is an often-used recreational name for the same sport.

Table TennisSome recreational players may choose to use a volleyball style system of scoring and play. Such variations include, allowing the let serve, not requiring the server to hit the ball on their half of the table first (but still allowing it), allow volleying a return if desired, and relaxing other small rules in doubles to make the game easier to play. Common recreational scoring styles include Best of 3 Side Out Scoring to 15, 21, 25, 30 points per game with a third game being played rally point style to 15, Best of 5 Rally Score to 30, with 5th game to 15, and so forth. Even Tennis Style Scoring can be used if desired.
