Table Tennis Tips

A real low and short no-spin serve can give you some easy points in matches, as they are difficult to flip hard, and they require good timing to push hard. Mix it up with a heavy backspin in the same spot. Remember to get it short, the ball should bounce short on your side close to the net...

 Table tennis rubber weights

Most manufacturers do not specify the weight of their rubbers. Since the rubber weight is a large portion of the overall weight of a complete bat (2 rubbers are roughly half the weight of the bat), I think it's important to know this information.

Below I've started compiling a list of rubber weights in grams per square cm. I calculate this by weighing the uncut sheet, and measuring the dimensions of the sheet. The weight per square cm is then the total weight divided by the (length x width).

To work out the roughly how much weight the rubbers will add to your bat, assume your blade surface area is about 190cm2, so multiply the weight below by 190. Remember most bats need 2 rubbers...

The sponge thickness needs to be specified too, as different thicknesses will effect the weight. Note that I weigh the rubber sheet WITH the plastic protection sheet still on there, which will add a small amount of weight too.
