The fastest sport may be motorcycle racing but on feet how does TableTennis compare to Boxing ?
I think TableTennis is faster than all other individual sport on feet but (kick) boxing may be faster .
TableTennis may be the most complex but boxing may have an edge because of the physical strength to go 15 rounds in addition to all other traits such as speed, brains etc which may be about equal.

Any other sports ?

Jai Alai (aka pelota) is known as the most lethal ball in sports. It is three-quarters the size of a baseball and harder than a golf ball. The best in the sport can toss the pelota at speeds greater than 300 km/h. As a result, Guinness World Records has dubbed Jai Alai as the fastest moving ball sport in the world

Thanks for the info. 300 KPh is about 180 MPH . However overall how fast do the athletes move & how long ? Should it not be a consideration. Badminton, tennis, racquetball etc balls & players move pretty fast but TableTennis court size can vary from very small to larger than badminton.

BTW I assume players have been killed in Jai Alai ?  It used to be very popular in Connecticut & Florida etc at one time . Is it still quite popular ?  Don't they bet a lot in this ? 

I would like to see lot of betting in TableTennis like in Reisman days. If gambling is good for Waldner it cannot be that bad for others LOL

Just watched a few videos about that sport and it's really insane! Not very watchable imo but still really amazing!

You need to define your parameters. Badminton, squash, tennis could all be considered faster depending on what exactly you mean and that's just racquet sports.
