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.
So there were card games, board & dice games, rackets & balloon games and even tiddledy winks tennis games.
But the first use of the name Table Tennis occurred on a board and dice game by J.H.Singer of New York around 1884 and it's also known that a game of Table Tennis was offered in the 1887 game catalogue of George S. Parker, founder of the famed Parker Brothers in America.
