Any impairment can play table tennis – however elite table tennis does not have classifications for visual and hearing impairments.
Polybat is a popular form of adapting table tennis for those with severe motor function problems, or those who are deafblind. For all other impairments, there are small adaptations you can make! You can play table tennis with bigger, colored balls, players can sit against wheelchair players, some players can tape the bat to their hand to assist grip. The rule changes are minimal, with one slight serving change for wheelchair play.
