A table tennis table is 9 feet long, 5 feet wide and 2 feet 6 inches high, according to the International Table Tennis Federation. The net is 6 feet long and 6 inches high.

Table tennis, also known as ping pong, is played by two or four players who use paddles to bounce a lightweight ball back and forth on the surface of a table that is divided in half by a net running across its width. A player earns points when an opposing player fails to return the ball in compliance with the game’s rules. The first player to earn 11 points wins the game, but each game must be won by a two-point margin.
