Simple, Get some string, apply chewed gum to the end and hopefully it will stick to the ball and pull it right up.......

fill the pipe with water completely since it is a table tennis ball it will float out.

If you pour water into the pipe the ping pong ball (being lighter)should float up to the top.

Based on the attachment, I would pour water in the pipe, allowing the ball to rise to the surface.

Yup,H20. Fill the pipe with water, retrieve your ball.

Possibly use Argon, it is heavier than air. With light pressure it may be enough to push the ball out.

Yep, tough one all right. Last I checked, ping pong balls float. So fill the pipe with water and there you go.

Ok. Guess I should've read all the way through the posts before I got all cocky.

I'm pretty sure that if you just filled the pipe up with water until over flowing that the ball would be freed.

Because the pipe has a sealed bottom. Pour water into the pipe. The ping pong ball will float to the top!
