Mini-Quiz: Table Tennis/Ping-Pong

by Ron Kurtus (4 November 2001)

Take this Mini-Quiz to check your understanding of the lesson material.

1. Could you use an over-sized paddle, similar to an over-sized tennis racquet?

No, there is only one size allowed

Yes, the rules don't restrict size or shape

Only if you are playing a professional player

2. What happens if you serve the ball and the other player returns it before it hits the table on that side?

It is your point

He gets 2 points for a fly shot

You change services

3. Why do some players try to put a spin on the ball?

They can't help it, due to the awkward way they hit the ball

To show off their skills

To make it more difficult to return

If you got all three correct, you are on your way to becoming a champion in table tennis. If you had problems, you had better look over the material again.
