Quick Look: World Cup Table Tennis for iPad

Share This:


This is one of the most beautifully designed and addictive iPad games on the app store. It takes several hours to learn the techniques and become a master at World Cup Table Tennis for iPad. And that’s as it should be. Have you ever played Table Tennis ?  It’s not easy.

Thankfully I have spent hours mastering the finger movement, and now I am taking my Ping-Pong skills on to the world wide stage. Well sort of.


Here’s a little more detail on the game’s basics, via its App Store page:

For more great Table Tennis action, unlock all four modes through in-app purchase to play against your friends.

World Cup Table Tennis features four modes: all-new Career, enhanced Tournament, Arcade, and Multi-player/Head to Head. In Career, play against twenty countries. Start with the lowest ranked countries in the world, and go against the top rated countries – all from real world rankings! In Tournament mode, see if you can win the Gold Cup! In Arcade, play a new twist on the classic game with added bonuses! In Head-to-Head Mode, compete in real-time against another player on the same iPhone/iPod touch!

As you play Career, Tournament, and Arcade modes, unlock 8 paddles – with each paddle offering a distinct performance combination of power and spin that you can use against different countries. Wait till you master these awesome new paddles!

It’s the kind of game that you can get lost in. Before I knew it I was cursing my iPad and questioning my decision at a horrible drop shot,  that my opponent from Brazil smashed in my virtual face. Memories from my childhood rushed back as I got more involved in this game.

Selecting different coloured Ping-Pong paddles, playing different countries of the world, and re-living that inner "Forrest Gump" is what makes this iPad game an awesome experience.

Here’s an App store link for World Cup Table Tennis;   It’s  $1.99 for a full version of the game, but there is also a Free version you can try out.
