Tennis and Table Tennis

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.
