Table tennis has come a long way from its late 19th century origins as an after-dinner game played by upper-class English families. More than a century later, table tennis has a greater number of recreational players than any other sport and Olympic-level competition is a breathtaking spectacle.

Table Tennis History – Olympics

Table tennis made its Olympic debut at the Seoul 1988 Games with men’s and women’s singles and doubles. Since Beijing 2008 the competition has consisted of men’s and women’s singles and team events, while the Tokyo 2020 competition will also include a mixed doubles event. Each event operates on a knockout format, with players and teams progressing through the draw until the finals.

The International Table Tennis Federation was founded in 1926 and is one of the largest governing bodies in international sport.

Event Programme

  • Singles (Men/Women)
  • Team (Men/Women)
  • Mixed Doubles

Essence of the Sport

The small size of the table tennis table belies the intense and dynamic character of play, with balls hit at speeds in excess of 100km/h and players constantly switching from defence to attack.

Table tennis players need lightning reactions, incredible agility and high levels of fitness. In order to capitalise on their own different physical and technical strengths, some players favour a stance that positions them close to the table while others prefer to operate from a distance.

Table Tennis Outlook for the Tokyo 2020 Games

Central European countries like Hungary, the Czech Republic, Austria and Germany dominated the sport until the middle of the 20th century. However, since table tennis joined the Olympic programme in 1988, China has won 28 of the 32 available gold medals.

The only European Olympic gold medallist so far has been the legendary Swedish player Jan-Ove Waldner. Nicknamed ‘the Mozart of Table Tennis’, Waldner won the men’s singles at the Barcelona 1992 Games.
