22 Fantastic Ping Pong GIFs

Sometimes it’s called table tennis; other times it’s called ping pong. The difference? Well, if you play it in a gym in shorts and sneakers with your arms flailing all over the place, it’s table tennis. If you play it in your basement and the paddle has orange fingerprints on it from the Doritos you were eating, it’s ping pong.

Former: Olympic sport. Latter: hobby. You get the idea.

Anyway, this list is going to have a little bit of both. Some of the GIFs are just ridiculous examples of idiots (or cats) playing ping pong, exhibiting almost no talent whatsoever. But some of them feature real table tennis players doing awesome table tennis type stuff. I won’t tell you which ones are which, though. Based on the criteria set out above, I think you can figure it out.

In any case…enjoy!
