Planning a family holiday or a get-together with friends and
need some kind of evening entertainment laid on other than the
usual TV and music system? We've found a variety of holiday
cottages with table tennis and they're proving hugely popular.
Did you know that table tennis was first played by upper class
Victorians as a form of after-dinner entertainment? They
transformed their dining tables into miniature indoor tennis
courts, setting up a row of books in the centre as a net, and then
used cigar box lids as paddles and Champagne corks as balls. As the
game evolved, early racquets were made from parchment whose sound
when striking the ball gave the game the nicknames of
'wiff-waff' and later the more affectionately known
So follow in the footsteps of our inventive ancestors and plan
some after-dinner fun in your holiday cottage with table tennis.
Or, should it rain, perhaps an impromptu ping-pong tournament,
competing in twos or fours. And do be prepared for speed as you
spin and smash the ball over the nets at a much faster pace with
today's rubber laminated bats! View our full range of holiday
cottages with a table tennis table below.
