Best Answer

Until 2001 a Table Tennis game was played up to 21 points.

But in order to make the game more exciting, have more "crucial" points, and make it more appealing to television viewers, the rules of table tennis were changed.

A game of table tennis is now played up to 11 points.

The winner is the player or pair who first scores 11 points, unless both players or pairs score 10 points (called deuce). Then a game will be won by the first player or pair to gain a two point lead.

A match is the best of an odd number of games - usually 3, 5 or 7 games.
