Best Answer

There is no difference between Table Tennis and ping pong. Table tennis and ping pong are just different names for the same sport.

Table tennis is the official name for the sport, but when it was first invented it's popular name was ping pong. This is due to the sound the objects they used for bats would make.

AnswerTable Tennis is the name of the sport played. That is why there isn't ping pong in the Olympics. Ping Pong is a brand name that has since become interchangable with the word table tennis in the United States. There are ping pong tables which are used to play table tennis (the brand ping pong) and table tennis tables which are essentially the same thing.
