Checklist For Table Tennis Bats

Material and Shape
  • Handle: There are several shapes – straight, concave and anatomical handles. Most often, bats are played with concave handles. However, this is very individual and should simply be tried out.
  • Surface: Competition bats need to be approved by the International Table Tennis Federation (ITTF).
  • Sponge thickness: The thicker the sponge, the faster the acceleration: The sponge acts like a trampoline on the wood. In addition, the rotation of the ball increases with increasing sponge thickness.
  • Depending on the experience and skill of the individual player, there are different variants for children, beginners, advanced players or professionals.
  • The different versions differ, for example, in material, size or shape of the handle.
  • Especially for beginners andchildren are particularly well suited whole sets, which contain several rackets and balls.
Rackets for Children
  • These usually have a smaller handle and are especially perfect for children up to twelve years.
  • In addition, the racket blade can also be minimally smaller, which affects the weight.
Rackets for Beginners
  • Beginners’ rackets usually have a thinner sponge, so that they can play more slowly and learn the basics.
  • Basically, the material is not crucial for hobby players.
Rackets for Advanced Players And Professionals
  • If you have serious ambitions in table tennis, it is worth having a racket that is individually tailored to you.
  • Depending on the type of game (offensive, defensive, all-rounder), a special composition of wood, rubber and sponge may make sense for you.
  • Competitive athletes should make sure that the materials are approved by the ITTF.
Table Tennis Sets
  • Complete sets are especially suitable for beginners and families.
  • As a rule, the focus here is on fun, so expensive and individually assembled bats are not necessary.
  • Sets with several balls are especially suitable for smaller children, as they could be accidentally crushed more often.
