Para-table tennis was included in the first Paralympic Games in Rome, in 1960.
Para-table tennis is open to athletes with a physical or intellectual impairment. Athletes compete in standing or sitting (wheelchair) classes. Men and women compete individually and in team events.
The rules of the International Table Tennis Federation (ITTF) apply to the Paralympic table tennis competitions with slight modifications.
