Traditional table tennis (ping pong) games allow only two or four people to play together. Guenter Arndt wanted to come up with something more inclusive, so he created Table Tennis Triples, a table tennis game with teams of three people playing simultaneously, on a circular table.

His Modular Table Tennis System (MTTS) allows 1-12 or more players to play table tennis with exciting new game configurations.

The benefits of MTTS include reduced waiting times and more socializing as more people play together, they get greater shot range and there is a fairer 'Triples' scoring system. Also, conventional tables can be reversibly 'Triples' retrofitted.

MTTS was officially launched at the 10th ITTF Sports Science Congress during World Championships, Zagreb.

The prototype system has already secured an International PCT-Patent Application. The designer is looking for sponsors/ manufacturers/ distributors/ licensees worldwide. Stats for 12 Player Ping Pong Tables Trending: Older & Chilly
