TENNIS, TABLE

Although the game of table tennis was evolved in the 1890s, when it was known variously as indoor tennis, gossima, and ping pong, it did not attract a wide following until the 1920s. The New Zealand Table Tennis Association was formed in 1933 and the first national championships were held in 1934.
