Games with Table Tennis Balls

What can you do with a couple of table tennis balls? Here are a few suggestions and ideas for games that can naturally also be played to some extent with nuts, potatoes or balloons.

  1. Fan Propulsion

    A table tennis ball is blown using a pot lid or table tennis paddle over a course to the goal.

  2. Spoon Transport

    A table tennis ball is passed player to player on a spoon. If the ball falls, the round must be started again at the beginning.

  3. Spoon to Spoon

    A table tennis ball is passed spoon to spoon. If the ball falls, the round must be started again at the beginning.

  4. Spoon & Table Tennis Ball Relay 1

    The player holds a spoon on his mouth and carries a table tennis ball on it over a course. Which team is the fastest? If the ball falls, the round must be started again at the beginning.

  1. Spoon & Table Tennis Ball Relay 2

    The player holds a spoon on his mouth and carries a table tennis ball on it over a course blind-folded. A team member verbally guides him through the course.

  2. Straw Propulsion

    Use a straw to blow a table tennis ball through an obstacle course on a table or the floor to the goal.

  3. Table Tennis Ball Goal Shoot

    A table tennis ball is blown to a goal (with or without a straw). Which team can shoot the most goals?

  4. Table Tennis Ball Bouncing Contest

    Who can bounce a table tennis ball with a paddle the most times?

  5. Table Tennis Ball Goal Bounce

    Who can hit a table tennis ball against the wall so that it then bounces into a waste paper basket?

  6. Table Tennis Ball Squash

    Who can hit a table tennis ball the most times against a flat wall/door without the ball falling to the ground?

  7. Floating Table Tennis Balls

    Many table tennis balls float in a tub filled with water. The player must use a rubber hose to suck up a ball to remove it from the tub. Who can remove the most balls in a certain time period?

  8. Table Tennis Ball Cup Tennis

    A table tennis ball is played over a net using cups instead of rackets or paddles. Volleyball rules apply: up to 3 times is the ball allowed to be played in your field. Then it must be hit over the net to the opposing team. Other rules can be agreed upon individually.

  9. William Tell

    A table tennis ball is placed on the opening of a bottle. Using a water pistol or water nozzle, the ball must be shot off the bottle.

  10. Balance

    Who can balance a table tennis ball on a table tennis paddle (through an obstacle course?) without the ball falling off?

  11. Skillful?

    A table tennis ball is shaken up out of a cup and then immediately caught again. How many times can it be done? Which team is done the fastest and makes the least mistakes?

  12. Table Tennis Ball Catch with a Water Glass

    Catch a table tennis ball with a water glass. The ball is rolled off a table or ladder, or tossed by a second person. How many balls out of 10 can be caught?

  13. Funnel Ball

    A table tennis ball is placed in a funnel. Who can blow the ball out of it by blowing in the funnel’s small pipe? (promise him a pizza)

  14. Puff

    Blow through a straw to move a table tennis ball from one egg cup to another right next to it.

  15. Egg Cups

    A table tennis ball is placed in an egg cup. Through puffing, the ball is blown into a second cup which is placed next to the first cup. Then the ball is puffed back to the first cup. Which 2 man team can do this the most within 60 seconds? Whoever gets the knack of it can do it about 40-50 times.

  16. Ropeway

    Tie two strings to a chair or 2 people can hold the strings taught with their hands. On the strings roll a table tennis ball back and forth.

  17. Egg Carton Points

    A few egg cartons are laid out. Each cup get a varied point value. The goal is to get as many points as possible with 10 ball throws. Either directly toss the ball or bounce it once on the ground before it goes in the egg cartons.

  18. 50 Meter Puff

    A table tennis ball is blown with a garden hose or washing machine hose over a 50 meter distance on an asphalt street.

  19. Whisked

    Instead of a hose, the table tennis ball is fanned by a newspaper. Who can go 50 meters the fastest?

  20. Obstacle Course

    A table tennis ball is held on a spoon and the player must go through an obstacle course. The ball is not allowed to fall on the ground.

  21. Back of the Knee Handicap

    A table tennis ball is held in the back of the knee. The player must run a course without the ball falling.

  22. Labyrinth 1

    Wooden building blocks, pieces of wood, or books are laced on a slightly inclined table or table tennis table to form an course (Time: 2-4 minutes). The ball is let go at the top and the time is kept and stopped when the ball reaches the bottom. Which ball rolls the farthest through the zig-zag course? A ball that gets hung up is a loser.

  23. Labyrinth 2

    Nail or glue small slats of wood onto a wood sheet, making a labyrinth. The team must lift, sink and tip the wood sheet so that a table tennis ball can travel from the start to the finish (one end to the other).
