NEC Para-Sports Channel : Table Tennis
The International Class Para Table Tennis Championships was held on November 19 and 20, 2016 in Osaka City, Osaka. While the rules are basically the same as ordinary competition rules, there are some rules that differ such as serving a ball that bounced into one’s own court once is allowed for those who are not able to perform an ordinary toss due to disability. Classes are grouped based on the levels and types of disabilities with competitions taking place for each class. The speed of the balls and intensity of the matches are the same for those with or without disabilities. Watch the heated matches.
