Table Tennis

Speed and quick reactions constitute the two main characteristics athletes in Table Tennis have. Every game consists of five sets. The first athlete or team that scores 11 points wins the set.

General view of the Τable Τennis matches during the Sydney 2000 Paralympic Games. © Scott Barbour/AllsportTable Tennis at the Paralympic Games presents only minor differences compared to the corresponding game in the Olympic Games. Only a few modifications have been made for athletes who use a wheelchair. Participants are athletes with cerebral palsy, spinal cord injuries and athletes with an amputation or other locomotor disabilities. The athletes compete in a wheelchair or standing and are classified in 10 classes based on their functional ability.
