Keep your bat legal and rubber damage free

It is an easy thing to forget to check your rubber for damage after each game but if you get to the Grand Final, your bat will be checked and only minimal damage to the rubber will be acceptable – about 2mm in size.

  • No pieces of rubber missing or torn
  • No exposed wood on edges of the blade
  • Pimpled rubbers not to have a group of pips missing

Ping Pong

Although it’s said that ping-pong was introduced to the Far East by British army officers in the early 20th century, it officially became an Asian phenomenon in the early 1950s. By the time the 1952 Ping-Pong Championships were held in Mumbai, Asian players were dominating  the scene. That year, Japan won four gold medals. Soon after, Mao Zedong declared table tennis as China’s national sport.
