Table Tennis Ping Pong difference

Everything seemed out of place and different. Here are the differences I noticed (though I didn't necessarily hear them all, because I came in the middle):

Scoring: Table Tennis: Score ends at 11 points with a difference of at least 2 points difference between the two players. Odd number of games to per match, in tournament, usually best of 5-7 games per match. Score ends at 15 and is defined by the first person to reach 15 points. So a final score of 15-14 is a winning score. There is a special "double-point ball" that can be used once per match when serving, and it gives 2 points to the serving player if won, and 1 point to the receiving player. It is white instead of orange to mark this occasion. All matches at World Championship 2016 are best of three games, race to 15 points, except the semi-finals and the final which is best of five sets. Ping Pong: Table Tennis - many variations - each person has their own customized paddle with some specification of sameness, in particular size. Surface is usually sticky rubber. Ping Pong - standard paddle used by all. Sandpaper is the surface which limits very much the spin potential. I couldn't find anywhere the details of the specification of this paddle, or an explanation of how it behaves differently from a typical table tennis paddle. I was shocked to discover that even Wikipedia doesn't cover this form of Ping Pong. The simply redirects to . So some updates required there... In fact, nowhere in the entry about Table Tennis is the word "sand paper" mentioned - which is the surface of the paddles in Ping Pong. Actually, Wikipedia isn't alone. This Quora answer has many mistakes and also many other sites. For instance, Killerspin tries to answer it, and also . Paddle/Racket/Bat (terminology may vary also by culture/region):
