 About this website:

This Table Tennis Equipment Review Website is designed to give you enough advice about equipment to help you make an informed decision on what you purchase for this great sport of ours. We include ratings and reviews collected from many sources on the internet for most items. Since reviews on Chinese table tennis equipment are quite rare, we have been reviewing them ourselves, and along with many other reviews and comments from other places on the internet, we have organised them here in one place. This will hopefully support this great sport of ours! We also now have table tennis coaching videos and articles.

Our table tennis equipment ONLINE Shop has been selling gear for many years now. We offer a large range of rubbers, i.e.  inverted rubber, short pimple rubber, medium pimple, and long pimple rubber, sponges and topsheets. We offer blades in many different technologies, i.e.. wood, glass fiber, carbon fibre, arylate carbon, crystal carbon in both Shakehand blade and Penhold blade (Chinese or Japanese). We also offer many other accessories like speed glue, normal glue, bat covers, edge tape, rubber protection sheets, balls, nets and many others. We offer a good range of cheap but high quality Premade Bats and also offer a range of custom designed combinations of rubbers and blades, to suit particular styles. We are more than happy to answer any of your question, and can offer professional advice for designing bats to suit your particular level and style. Our range includes all of the top Chinese brands, European brand Donic and some of the top Japanese brands like JUIC and TSP as well. We have also recently added a range of table tennis DVDs
