What is the circumference of a ping pong ball?

The diameter of any sphere can be calculated by multiplying it's diameter by Pi. For a 40mm diameter Ping Pong Ball, this comes to ~ 125.6 mm. For a 38mm diameter Ping Pong Ball, this comes to ~ 119.32 mm. The diameter of a ping pong ball is 40mm. I do not know the circumference. Before the ball was changed a few years ago to 40mm, it was 38mm. The larger ball travels more slowly and with less spin. This was done to make Table Tennis easier to watch on television, and therefore make the sport more popular. On TV, TT can appear too fast to appreciate, and by enlarging the ball it was hoped that the game would slow. The game has, in fact, slowed, but this has not accomplished the goal of popularizing the sport. Many players would love to see the ball returned to 38mm, as at this size the ball traveled more quickly and more spin was possible, making the ball's travel more manageable.
