About Table Tennis
Table Tennis is the world’s biggest participation sport. The sport is accessible to athletes with a wide range of impairments. These are categorised into physical and intellectual impairments, with the physical impairment class divided into wheelchair and standing groups. Singles and team events are contested across a total of 11 classes, which reflect the degree of impairment.
The basic rules regarding equipment, match process and points scoring are almost identical to those used in the Olympic Games, with special rules regarding the ball toss part of the serve in some classes. Matches are played as the best of five sets with 11 points in each set.
