A ping-pong ball is a 40mm diameter sphere, which has a volume of 33.5 square centimeters (2.04 in^3). If we assume the ping pong balls naturally pack themselves in Hexagonally Closest Packed (HCP) arrangement, then we have 12^3 inches divided by 2.04in^3, times the 74% packing efficiency of HCP, which gives us about 625 ping pong balls.

Why is it that when 20cm3 of water is mixed with 20cm3 of sugar you do not get 40cm3?

Some of the sugar will dissolve in the water. An easy way to imagine this is to imagine a huge box (I'll say 10m3 as an example) full of basketballs, and another huge box (again, 10m3) full of table tennis balls. If you mixed the two boxes in an even bigger box, the table tennis balls would fill in the spaces between the basketballs and you'd end up with less than 20m3 of balls.

Are there any tennis balls in a Shakespeare play?

Yes, in Henry V. The Dauphin of France, thinking that Henry is a worthless fribble as he appeared to be when he was Prince Hal (in the Henry IV plays) sends as compensation for the English claims to the throne of France a box of tennis balls (which he calls a treasure chest), implying that Henry is probably more interested in tennis than politics. Big mistake. The tennis balls just make Henry mad and more convinced than ever to start a war with France.
