Table Tennis Balls vs. Ping-Pong® Balls
When shopping for the best table tennis balls at DICK'S Sporting Goods, it is important to note whether you are shopping for table tennis or for Ping-Pong. Ping-Pong is a trademarked name for table tennis. Most sports-lovers think the two games are one in the same. However, table tennis is a competitive, internationally-recognized sport, while Ping-Pong is typically a less competitive, recreational game. The two are very similar, but there are some key differences:
- Balls: Ping-Pong balls are usually bigger than table tennis balls, clocking in around 3.7mm while table tennis models are 3.4mm.
- Paddles: Table tennis paddles come in many different shapes and sizes, and they need to be replaced regularly. Ping-Pong paddles are standardized and a lot more durable.
- The Game: The games themselves differ a bit, as table tennis players try to spin the balls to make their hits harder to predict, while Ping-Pong players simply hit the ball back and forth.
