Table Tennis is a sport in which players hit a lightweight ball back and forth across a hard table divided by a net using a small paddle. The play is fast and demands quick reactions. Spinning the ball alters its trajectory and limits an opponent’s options, giving the hitter a great advantage.

Table Tennis competition at the Arctic Winter Games includes singles, doubles and a team event. Individual competition begins with round-robin play, followed by a medal round among the top-ranked players and the team event follows the same model.

Table Tennis has two age categories: Junior and Juvenile for both male and female competitors. A team consists of up to eight athletes and two coaches.
