Ping Pong Goes the Ball!
By Colleen Messina
  

1     Ping Pong is a fun game. It was named for a sound. Someone thought the ball sounded like ping and pong as it went back and forth!
 
2     Ping pong is also called table tennis. Two or four people play it. They use paddles. They hit a small ball. They hit it over a net. The net is on a table. The table is small. It is nine feet long. It is five feet wide. The ball moves fast. Players must be quick to win.
 
3     One player serves the ball. He or she hits it. It goes over a net. The other player hits the ball back. If that player misses, the first player gets a point. The first person to get eleven points wins the game. He or she must win by at least two points.
