Volleypong is a sport invented on lunch break at MAQ Software. I think it is fun. It’s played like regular doubles ping pong but with the following rule changes:

  1. You can set the ball, like in volleyball. (That is, you can hit it in the air to your teammate.)
  2. Your team must set the ball to each other once or twice before hitting it to the other side.
  3. All shots must hit both sides of the table (like how serves are hit in regular ping pong).
  4. On the initial serve of the point, you can only set the ball once.

The game is still in an exploratory phase as we get decent at it. But I think it has strong potential. I encourage any ping pong enthusiasts to try this for themselves and get back to me.
