    Top 3 table tennis accidents


    While table tennis is a comparatively safe sport, table tennis accidents can and will happen occasionally. Here are the three most common table tennis-related accidents.

    Top 3 table tennis accidents

    Common table tennis accidents include:

    • Muscle strains due to lack of warming-up. Common areas affected by such strains include shoulders, wrists and backs.

    • Injuries to the lower back, knee and wrist joints, as well as shoulder and ankle joints due to overuse and/or poor technique

    • Injuries by slips, trips and falls

    Occasionally, players are also injured by:

    • Hitting their thumbs/fingers on the edge of tables while taking close-up shots

    • Flying objects due to damaged or defective bats disintegrating

    This type of accident is, however, comparatively rare.

    Preventing table tennis accidents

    Table tennis injuries can often be prevented by:

    • Adequately warming up before commencing play

    • Practising proper techniques

    • Taking regular breaks to prevent overuse injuries

    Injuries by slipping or tripping while playing table tennis are often caused by spilt drinks or carelessly discarded balls, kit bags and other trip and slip hazards. Injuries by tripping and slipping can, therefore, be prevented by immediately clearing up spills and ensuring kit bags, balls and other objects are positioned out of harm’s way.

    Injured while playing table tennis

    If you suffered an injury while playing table tennis, you could be eligible to make a personal injury claim if:

    • Someone else caused your injury

    • You sustained your injury within the past three years

    You may also be entitled to compensation if, for instance, a bat you or another player were using disintegrated and you were hit by flying parts of the bat.
