When did ping pong began?

Ping pong, or known as Table Tennis, most likely began in England as a Social Hobby. It was possible to be towards the end of the 1800's as the starting era. Balls of cork and tables made up some of the early equipment that was used. Back then, it may have been referred as film-flam, gossima, or ping-pong.


Why is table tennis called ping pong?

In the early days of the sport (around 1890-1900) various names were used for this new game. Different manufacturers used different names and Indoor Tennis, Gossima, Whiff-Whaff and Ping Pong were all early examples of patented or trademarked names. But as the sport developed and manufacturers began to enforce their patents and trademarks, a new name was required, so in 1926 the international sport of TABLE TENNIS was born. So although most people use the names ping pong and table tennis interchangeably, Ping Pong is actually a registered trademark in the USA and a brand of equipment used to play the sport of table tennis. However, particularly in the USA, the name ping pong has continued to be used. This is probably because ping pong was promoted extensively in the early 1900s by the equipment manufacturers who owned the trademark, and therefore it became ingrained in peoples minds - just as any other product which is widely advertised and promoted.


Who is the fornder of ping pong?

"Who invented ping pong?Ping pong was a collective invention that emerged from the British upper classes of the late 19th century. Books of that era, such as Arnold Parker's 1902 primer Ping-Pong, the Game and How to Play It, indicate that ping pong existed as early as 1881. Table tennis and Gossima (likely related to the lightness of gossamer) were the first titles given to the game, and the first playing materials used in ping pong history were invariably books, cigar box lids, and champagne corks, suggesting a rainy day diversion for lawn tennis players or bored colonial soldiers.The term ping pong was trademarked in 1901 by J. Jaques & Son Ltd., right around the time that celluloid balls were introduced by James Gibb. Modern style ping pong rackets followed in 1903, when E.C. Goode stuck sheets of pimpled rubber to a wooden blade."http://www.homefurnish.com/gameroomgym/games/historyofpingpong.aspx


What is the history of table tennis?

The origin of table tennis has never been exactly pinpointed, even though it's a relatively young sport, younger than lawn tennis and not much older than basketball.The earliest known form of the sport, called indoor tennis, was played in the early 1880s by British army officers in India and South Africa, using lids from cigar boxes as paddles and rounded corks from wine bottles as balls, with a row of books set up across the middle of a table to form the net.Other versions developed in England during the 1890s, known variously as "whiff whaff" and "gossima," and Parker Brothers began manufacturing an indoor tennis kit that included a portable net that could be set up on a table, a small ball covered with netting, and miniature paddles.James Gibb, an Englishman who visited the United States in 1900, brought some hollow celluloid balls home and began playing indoor tennis with friends, using the new balls. Gibb apparently came up with the name "ping pong," representing the sounds of the ball hitting the paddle and then the table.However, an English manufacturer of sporting goods, John Jacques, registered "Ping Pong" as a trade name in 1901 and sold American rights to Parker Brothers, who came out with a new kit under that name.Another Englishman, E. C. Goode, in 1902 covered his wooden ping pong paddle with pebbled rubber, which allowed him to put spin on the ball. A Ping Pong Association was founded in England that year, but it lasted less than three years, mainly because Parker Brothers' control of the name made equipment rather expensive.
