protect a ping pong racket?


 Share

Recommended Posts

hey guys

i'm planning on getting a ping pong racket

what i would like to know is how to protect it, so that it doesn't get broken easily

i don't want it that the rubber looses its stickiness easily, in a short time

what can i do? after i play? or what recommendations can you guys give me?

thanks :D

Not 100% sure, but you can get a few meters of tape-like stuff for the handle, and you can but all sorts of different rubbers to go on the actual paddle from specialists. Also, you can get a gel-type stuff which you apply to the rubber to keep it strong, but also get the right kind of serface for hitting the ball.

I don't know jack about it myself, but one of my mates would kick you in the nads if you called it a ping-pong bat infront of him! It's a Table Tennis Paddle and searches for this on google may be more productive if you are looking for an online retailer!

For the racket not to brake, you're gonna have to store it. They sell some tape that protects the side of the racker incase you hit the table. The tape for the handle is just for grip. As for the rubbers, buy some good glue and learn how to apply it yourself. You could do it every few days if you're playing it as a sport or every few weeks if you play casualy (sp?). Clean the rubbers frequently (they sell some foam cleaner and a sponge).

when you just playing around, make sure you dont accidently hit it so that it scraps along the table and makes the padding come loose. also, make sure that you dont hit anything else with it, like walls, the table, etc.

i've got a stiga case for mine too, it works alright but i really dont need it that much. just make sure you dont mess around with it and goof around w/ it.
