Net sports are sports where two opposing players or teams compete while being separated by a regulated net that sets the scoring and rules of the game. Games involving nets may include special equipment such as rackets, but others, like volleyball, only require that the players use only their hands to hit the ball over the net to the opposing side. Scoring in net sports are most often determined when the opponent does not return the ball back across the net, or lets it touch the ground or bounce twice depending on the sport. Net sports promote multiple athletic skills while also remaining approachable by the average player. The equipment required for net sports are lightweight and affordable which allows for humans of all ages to join these games.

Table Tennis Clearances
Drawing with dimensions for the minimum side and end clearances required around a Table Tennis | Ping Pong Table

Table Tennis | Ping Pong tables require varying minimum additional amounts of clearance space around the table depending on the play style and venue. Ranging from minimum casual clearances to recreational, local, national, and international settings, table tennis clearances are established to avoid distractions and obstacles and to accommodate player movement. Minimum clearances for table tennis tables are set at an additional 5’ | 1.53 m from the end, 3’ | .9 m from the sides, and result in overall clearance dimensions of 19’x11’ | 5.8 m x 3.4 m (209 ft2 | 19.4 m2). Recreational style venues should have overall clearances of 28’x13’ | 8.5 m x 4 m (364 ft2 | 33.8 m2). International tournaments are regulated at minimum overall clearances of 46’x23’ | 14 m x 7 m (1,058 ft2 | 98.3 m2).

Tennis Court

Tennis courts are flat rectangular playing surfaces used for the sport of tennis. Measuring 78’ (23.77 m) by 36’ (11 m) for doubles or 27’ (8.2 m) for singles, tennis courts have an overall playing area of 2,808 ft2 (260.9 m2). To ensure the safety of the players as they chase balls outside the court boundaries, a clearance space of 21’ (6.4 m) should be provided beyond the baselines and 12’ (3.66 m) for the sides. The total area required for the court and the clear space is 7,200 ft2 (668.9 m2). Tennis courts vary in materials depending on indoor or outdoor uses. Outdoor courts are made of grass, clay, or acrylic topped concrete, and indoor courts are commonly topped with hardwood flooring or carpet.

Ping Pong Balls
Drawing with dimensions for diameter and circumference of a Table Tennis | Ping Pong ball with three-stars

Table Tennis | Ping pong balls are spherical polymer balls fabricated specifically for the sport. Established under international rules at a diameter of 1.57” | 40 mm (circumference of 4.94” | 125.6 mm) and mass of .095 oz| 2.7 g, ping pong balls are colored as either white or orange depending on the table surface and game style. White balls are official tournament balls and pair well with blue or green tables, while orange balls are used for casual games as they are easier to see in most settings. Table tennis balls are rated with a star system to denote quality—one star being the softest and easiest to break while three stars is the most durable and approved for tournament play. The official table ping pong ball has changed over the years from a composition of celluloid to polymer and from a size of 1.5” | 38 mm to 1.57” | 40 mm.

Table Tennis Tables
Plan drawing of a standard regulation Table Tennis | Ping Pong Table with dimensions for width and length

Table tennis tables are regulated playing surfaces designed specifically for the game of table tennis (ping-pong). Table tennis tables measure 9’ | 2.74 m long by 5’ | 1.525 m in wide. The playing surface of a ping-pong table must be set at a height of 2.5’ | 76 cm and is equipped with a center net that is 6” | 15.25 cm high and stretches 6” | 15.25 cm beyond the width of the table.

Tables can be constructed out of a variety of materials ranging from common designs using plywood and/or particle-board to more exotic variants made of concrete, metal, plastic or fiber-glass. The materiality of a table tennis table is a matter of preference, but the bounce of the ball on the surface should be uniform at a height of 9.1” | 23 cm when dropped at a height of 11.8” | 30 cm.
