Firstly, you shall need the following;
- 5 people (4 players, 1 ballboy or ballgirl [recommended, but isn’t needed])
- A regular 4-player table tennis table
- At least 6 table tennis balls
- 4 table tennis bats
Alrightly. Now you get two people sitting on the floor on either side of the table, each with a bat and a ball or two. Then, you simply hit the people on the other side of the table using the ball and bat. The ballboy/ballgirl has to pick up any stray balls and give them to the ‘team’ closest (best measured by which side of the net it’s on). It is preferred that you hit the ball over the table, but under is also fine.
Usually everyone enjoys themselves for the first 20 or so minutes, then everyone actually does get lazy.
So yeah, play it with your friends. 🙂
