Table Tennis also known as ping-pong is a worldwide sport with the major leagues all over the globe.
But how does Table Tennis scoring work? Well a game is won by the first player to win 11 points - by at least 2 points. A match is the best of 5 or 7 games. Each match usually takes between 15 minutes to 1 hour - depending on the level of competition.

When picking a Table Tennis winner, there are 3 main markers to consider:
Form. Check your pick’s recent results and their performance at that particular event in previous years. Match up. Some players match up differently against others regardless of ranking or any other factor, so check their Head-to-Head record. Ranking. A player’s ranking is probably the easiest way to gauge their form and ability over other players.
