Table tennis is more complicated than Tennis because of the narrowness of area,small rackets etc.However,there are lots of countries good at tennis or loving tennis.Let’s check which country loves table tennis most.
The original name of table tennis is Ping-Pong, and this is a great sign of being started in Asia.In contrast,it’s not like that.Ping-Pong is a trademark name for table tennis and associated equipment. The name “Ping-Pong” was invented by the English firm J. Jaques and Son at the end of the 1800s and later trademarked in the United States by Parker Brothers, the board game company.Asian players are really good at Ping-Pong but surprisingly,European countries such as Germany and Sweden are as good as some Asian countries in ping pong.
Everyone knows that China is the number one fan of table tennis
It’s no wonder that China’s ping pong players have dominated the world championship competitions for almost half a century now. At both the 2008 and 2012 Olympics, China won all of the gold medals in the sport. That is an impressive feat! Just as impressive is China’s history with ping-pong. Have you ever heard of the “Ping Pong Diplomacy” event of 1972?
This agreement to exchange ping-pong players between the United States and China was one of the first steps toward better diplomatic relations between the two countries. Table tennis was a major contributor to opening up China’s social borders to the rest of the world. That is a very good reason for a billion people to be passionate about a sport.
