Stay Calm and Play Table Tennis.

The USA Natl TT Association doesn't have the deep pockets to hire Mafia Hit Squads like big TT suppliers do.

Just be sure you are not using any unauthorized Pro or National Versions of your beloved rubber.

The guy organising that tournement has a big grudge and is hoping to start a crusade.

Some of the rules are just plain ridiculous.

3.Exception :-Players can be asked to show their rackets to umpire / tournament director to ensure that it meets tournament rules but players are NOT required to show their racket to opponents even if the opponent demands it. Players with paranoid obsession with their opponents’ rackets and who blame their failures due to their own lack of proper techniques on opponents’ rackets should not consider playing in this tournament ( since at any given equal rating level there exists 100s of players worldwide with proper technique and with same equal rating, who can beat the same players that these players are complaining about regardless of what racket / rubber they use . HTTTC’s philosophy is that you need not be concerned about your opponents’ rackets with maniacal obsession but should focus on your own proper technique. Yes it is important that your opponents play with a racket allowed within rules of a specific tournament but that is the business of the umpire and tournament director (to ensure rackets meet their specifications) but none of the opponents’ business. (For example, if you are training against a (currently available) robot that spits balls in a sequence of randomized spins, you obviously cannot blame the robot if you are unable to read the random spins……..as the robot has no red & black heads………unless of course 99% of the (attacking style former player) members of the ITTF council mandate that all robots be designed as such with red & black heads, to be approved by the ITTF LOL)Again , as in item 2 , while no player is likely to refuse to show their racket to opponent , we cannot guarantee no player will (show their racket when asked by opponent

If you want to go old timer, then yes, play to 21, reverese the glue ban, geometry and colour rules. But this is just funny. Pick and mix the rules you like... and add a dose of obvious resentment, and a sprinkle of LOL and ROTFL, et voila!

Sad life.

I was going to say "spam" initially, but now after due consideration and having read his previous posts I rather think this poster lives under a bridge and has a habit of bothering passing billy-goats.
