The 6th of April marks World Table Tennis Day - an annual celebration of the sport.
Traditionally, participants around the world would gather at social events and tournaments but this year with several countries on lockdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic, players found new and creative ways to honour the game.
The International Table Tennis Federation (ITTF) engaged enthusiasts in the sport with special 'World Table Tennis at Home Day' initiatives on social media including 24 hours of wall-to-wall table tennis streamed to Facebook and user-generated COVID-19 videos.
Ahead of the big day, the ITTF called for people to creatively film themselves playing the game to contribute to the World's Longest Table Tennis Rally.
The craziest and funniest video clips were then combined to create the longest ever rally online.
Check out the awesome video, below!
