Almost everyone knows about tennis and table tennis,they are very
popular among the world.Tennis is known by many people in most western
countries like the United States and Australia. Although table tennis is not a
well-known sport in western countries, it is very popular in the eastern
countries like China. Table tennis became a symbolic sport in China, people
think that table tennis is very easy to play. What they need is just one sets of
table tennis bat, a table tennis ball, and a table for table tennis.There are many
similarities between tennis and table tennis.
The one similarity between tennis and table tennis is the number of the
players. They both have a maximum of two players on each team. The players
are available to choose whether one-on-one or two-on-two game.
The rules of tennis and table tennis is also a similarity. Players earn points
when their opponents are unavailable to hit the ball back to the other side of
the court or hit the ball back but the ball did not land inside the court.
The names of both sports are very similar too. People invented table
tennis because they wanted to play tennis in an easy way. So they brought a
table, set up a net, and built it up like a mini tennis court! That’s why this game
called “table tennis”.
Although tennis and table tennis are different in many ways, there are still
many similarities between them like the number of the players, the rules, and
thir names. I believe that tennis and table tennis will be more and more popular
in the future.
