The next big thing: table tennis triples

An Australian professor has come up with an innovative new table that will allow teams of three people to play ping-pong simultaneously on a circular table.

Next Big Thing Awards

The Table Tennis Triples and Modular Table Tennis System (MTTS) was a finalist in the Australian Next Big Thing Awards.

I love how the invention's "unique benefits" are listed on the award site:

"- More people play on one table: social benefits, reduced waiting times

- Greater shot range, fairer 'Triples' scoring system

- Conventional tables can be reversibly 'Triples' retrofitted

- Numerous games/table shapes possible with the MTTS sectors"
