Well, an ancient being from centuries ago hit a ping pong ball with his or her paddle. When the ball hit the paddle it made a 'ping' sound. The ball rebounded of the paddle and hit the table, making a 'pong' sound. Ping pong was then born.
Each side is equally capable of hitting the ping pong ball as the other.
as long as they do not interfere with the path of the ball, causing it to come off the paddle at weird angles, yes.
it is made of wood cover with rubber to make the ball spin
In table tennis, you need a table, a paddle, a net, and a ping pong ball.
I dont think you can get a ping pong paddle but during the fall fair or something you can play a game called "Puffle Paddle"

It is all in the motion of the serve, instead of hitting the ball straight forward, slice the ball with the paddle in order to keep the ball along the entire surface area of the paddle in a more or less downward motion and that will induce spin.
Yes it does. Its a beginner practice that helps you get a feel for hitting the ball and aiming at it. Once you play more and get better it becomes really easy and pointless.
no. all you need is a table with a net a paddle and a ball. you can get them at sports shops.
