Tips on buying a new table tennis bat

My rubbers were losing grip at the end of the season and fraying at the edges. A backhand backspin serve led to me cracking my blade on the table.

The bat needs to be replaced!

The question is, what should I buy? Am I better off replacing what I have already? Would something faster be better? More controllable? A different brand? Too many options!

Table tennis bats for beginners

When you are a beginner, you should not worry too much about all the different rubbers and blades available. A good all-around control bat is all you need. You don’t want it to be too fast or slow.

The bigger sweet spot on these bats will make it easier to hit the ball into your opponent’s side of the table. As you learn the core table tennis strokes, they will also help you control the ball.

Cheap bats (less than  ₹500) should be avoided. There’s a reason why they’re so cheap – they’re not very good! They are difficult to control, and you will have trouble spinning the ball, and they won’t help you develop good technique.

Table tennis bats for improvers

Your first custom made bat probably needs to be considered as you progress from beginner to intermediate. You need a forehand rubber, a backhand rubber, and a blade.

There are just so many choices available that this can be very overwhelming. Rubbers range in spin, control, speed, and pimple position (most pimples face in, some faces out).

Table tennis bats for advanced players

Even advanced players can have trouble selecting the right bat. As an advanced player, you probably know what you are looking for and have already used a number of different rubbers and blades in the past.

Changing rubbers or blades, however, presents a different challenge. There is no shortage of manufacturers claiming that their best rubbers are fast, spinny, controllable, and durable.

These were some tips for choosing a table tennis bat. You must be a table tennis fan if you are reading this article, and for playing the game you need a table tennis bat and ball. Sports Galaxy is the best place for these products.
