Best Answer

The game of Table Tennis has its roots in lawn tennis.

When lawn tennis became very popular in the 1870s & 1880s, game makers tried to emulate its' success by developing indoor versions of the game.

David Foster of England introduced the first action game of tennis on a table in 1890.
