Table tennis rackets, also known as paddles or bats, are composed of two unique elements. The "blade" and the "rubber". The International Table Tennis Federation (ITTF) was formed in Berlin in 1926 to set and standardize the rules of this relatively new sport. There are specific requirements concerning the composition of the blade and the rubber and foam covering, but the otherwise the rules state: "The racquet may be of any size, shape, or weight but the blade shall be flat and rigid". The interpretation of these parameters has resulted in unlimited choice of blades and paddles on the market today.
For the serious player the ability to choose the components is not a luxury, but the only way it is done. Blades come in a wide variety of shapes, weights, and handle styles. Once the blade is selected, there is the matter of the rubber, or rubbers. These too are available in several configurations, each giving a different result. Glue, edge tape, and a cutting board are required if you are assembling a custom racket. A full line of Killerspin products and accessories offered at ComfortChannel.com.
