similar, but not the same, no.
for example, when serving in Table Tennis, the ball must hit YOUR side of the table, bounce over the net and then hit your opponents side. in regular tennis, it just needs to hit your opponent's side.
the rules that are the same include:
the ball must not bounce more than once on your side of the net, or you lose that point
you may not hit the ball more than once when it is on you side of the net (meaning, if you hit it into the air straight up, you may not then hit it again to try to get it over the net)
serving is done behind the back line, and must be done from one quadrant of the court (or table) and needs to bounce on the quadrant kitty-corner from the serving quadrant.

table tennis is obviously played on a table and tennis is not. they have some of the same rules, but tennis has tramlines, so, in other words, table tennis' court doesnt change from doubles and singles and the singles does. also the scoring is different. table tennis is frist to 21 points and tennis it is first to 6 games. they are alike as they are both played with a raquet and a ball that you can hit before the bounce or after the bounce but 2 bounces and you have lost the point. they both use points in scoring but differently. both great games to play and good for fitness
