The game takes place on a hard table divided by a net. Except for the initial serve, players must allow a ball played toward them only one bounce on their side of the table and must return it so that it bounces on the opposite side. Points are scored when a player fails to return the ball within the rules. Play is fast and demands quick reactions. A skilled player can impart several varieties of spin to the ball, altering its trajectory and limiting an opponent’s options to great advantage.
Table Tennis has been initiated at the Polish & Slavic Center in June 1998 thanks to our friend, Anna Borys. The equipment has been donated by the Polish & Slavic Federal Credit Union and the space is continuously donated by the Polish & Slavic Center at 176 Java Street in Greenpoint. We meet regularly to play table tennis every Friday. It is fantastic opportunity for our players to socialize and hold occasional tournaments.
