Sensory App House have created a highly accessible version of this classic tennis game. Table tennis, ping pong, paddle, tennis all feature batting the ball. Switch Pong allows the game to be controlled by touch/tap, pointing device, bluetooth access switches, external bluetooth keyboard, Microsoft Adaptive Controller or XBox Controller.

This app can also be controlled using devices such as the AbleNet Blue2 MFI bluetooth switch or RJ Cooper bluetooth small switches (more options are available).

There is a demo mode, a bat practice mode, single player and double player options. There are settings to control the bat size, ball size and ball speed – you can also turn on or off the ping sounds!
