Table tennis terminology is a set of English words and phrases used in the game of table tennis to describe the game, the play and the equipment. This article lists some of them.
Antispin – A smooth rubber with very low surface friction, used to defend against strong spin or to confuse the opponent. This type of rubber is rarely (if at all) seen in modern top-level table tennis, but is popular with amateur and veteran players.
Blade – The wooden part of the paddle
Crossover – The point where a player has to change from playing a forehand stroke to backhand stroke; often a target for attack, since it is difficult to return balls aimed at this area.
Early – The rising part of a ball's bounce
Inverted rubber – Rubber which contacts the ball with its smooth surface, and is glued to the rest of the bat with its pimpled surface. With a larger contact area this type of rubber generally produces more spin than pimpled rubber, although some rubbers are designed to have the opposite effect (see Antispin above).
Heavy – Used to describe strong spin
Late – The falling part of a ball's bounce
Loop – A strong topspin stroke that aims to overpower the spin of the oncoming ball (usually backspin)
Loose – A return which is too high, too long, has insufficient spin or a combination of the above. Easy for the opponent to attack or kill (compare tight, below)
Multiball – Training method minimizing wasted time by using many balls which are continuously fed to the player, either by another player or a ball robot
Penhold – Style of player who grips the paddle in a manner similar to holding a pen
Pimples(Pips) – Rubber which contacts the ball with its pimpled surface; produces different effects on the spin compared with inverted rubber, due to the reduced contact area and flexibility of the pimples
Sandwich rubber – Inverted rubber, with sponge
Shakehand – The most popular table-tennis grip; similar to a tennis grip, with the index finger extended over the paddle head perpendicular to the handle
Speed glue – Glue used to attach rubber to the blade; contains a high percentage of volatile solvents, which soak into the sponge of a rubber and increases the speed and spin of a stroke
Third ball – The stroke hit by the server after the opponent's return of the serve. Because the serve can be used to make attacking difficult for the opponent, the third ball is frequently the first strong attacking stroke in a table-tennis rally.
Tight – A return which is difficult for the opponent to attack. Always a low ball, usually in combination with being short, having strong backspin or both

I think we should keep this going. It's a good help for beginners who have no idea what I'm on about. I constantly find myself saying EJ at my club, and everyone thinks I'm talking about someone called Elijah.
