Quick Reference Rules of Table Tennis by Dan Robbins

The Ball

Ball Size:
The new rule calls for a ball with a 40 millimeter diameter. The previous specification called for a 38 millimeter diameter ball. Tournaments sanctioned by the International Table Tennis Federation and itís national governing bodies around the world, have adopted the 40 millimeter ball specification beginning in the year 2000. It remains to be seen however, how quickly recreational-type tournaments will adopt the new size and how soon the public will be buying the 40 millimeter ball through sporting goods stores and various other retailers.

Ball Material:
Celluloid or similar plastic material may be used to make table tennis balls.

Ball Weight:
2.7gm is the weight specified by the official rules.
