    Yay !! Thank you so much Yoass, now THAT worked ! I had been trying to do it by clicking on the pencil icon in the "Personal Details" screen, which definitely does not work. So, I just need to...

    Personally, if it's straight in front of me I will use BH as I find a FH push in that position awkward.
  3. Updating personal details

    Hi,

    Can anyone tell me why, when I attempt to change my FH and BH rubbers under "Personal Details", I just get an eternal spinning hourglass when I save the new info ?

    While we are at this,...

    It is one of the more costly pimpled rubbers, but not a patch on reversed rubber prices from Butterfly and others e.g. Joola Dynarz. Table tennis is a cheap sport compared to many, so I don't mind...

    I'm currently using Joola Express Ultra on my BH - not hugely spinny but blazingly fast. Took me some while to get used to it, it's not an overnight job. If I want more spin for BH services or for...

    You probably know this already, but before attempting to sell it you should check very very carefully for cracking around the neck of the blade, which is probably easiest done by taking photos in...

    It'll be much easier to see once you are able to post videos ! Meanwhile, pendulum services take a LOT of practise to get right, I'd suggest concentrating on getting it over the net as your first...

    Nice that they do actually play a few points in among all the fannying (technical term) around. They sure are enjoying themselves though ! Not so sure about the dodgy-looking skinhead - is that...

    I've bought shirts and TT balls from them, and I think some bat cleaning sponges too. Had to wait a while because the shirts came from China and the balls from Thailand, but everything arrived as...

    You might get lucky with a stream somewhere, not sure. Otherwise it's Sky I'm afraid - the prize money has to come from somewhere and it won't be from paying spectators. However, try the World...

    I have seen Stiga Table Cleaner being used in the past; however since we reopened after the first lockdown they've been cleaned with mildly soapy water after each game.

    Welcome back MOG ! Agree about modern Stiga handles, , they are the dog's wotsits, although somewhere I still have a 1979/80 Stiga blade which has the thinnest handle I have ever come across - how...

    I use this shot often, usually to my advantage. Wish I could do it deliberately, but hey ho !

    From what I can recall, it was the Dunlop balls which were not celluloid. Most players even at the lowest levels did not like these balls and Halex and Nittaku were the order of the day - possibly...

    I also go for short placement and backspin, so that the receiver can't simply wallop the ball (I am left-handed and too many of my partners serve fast and long so that the receiver can return fast...

    In my experience, at lower levels there are far more players who attempt to rush you the whole time and delight in serving before you are ready. They also seem to like hustling the umpire, wanting...

    My club believes computers are a new-fangled upstart invention which will eventually go away if ignored studiously enough.

    Of course if you DO thank the opponent for his/her net serves, then is also good etiquette to remember to say "Well left !" when he or she plays an air shot. In doubles, this can also be used for...

    I've been wearing those shoes for the last 4 years. If and when they ever wear out, I can't see how I could do any better than buy another pair.
