Table Tennis

In para table tennis, sitting or standing athletes with limb impairments or intellectual impairments compete under the same game rules as that of able-bodied table tennis. Athletes are divided into classifications according to the type and degree of their impairment, and compete within their class. Athletes who have difficulty tossing the ball are permitted to bounce the ball on their court to serve. A special rule is applied to wheelchair athletes where the service ball must leave the table at the end and not the sides.
