    If you don't want to go straight into buying table tennis shoes, you just want to wear fairly light indoor court shoes. Badminton or Squash shoes should do the job very nicely and probably shoes...

    There is certainly topspin on that ball, although that shot is some way from being a loop. Looks to me like a forehand drive in old money ! And thank you for a post which demonstrates exactly...

    Or like me asking an opponent if he wouldn't mind occasionally returning the ball in the direction his stroke suggests, rather than mis-hitting every shot....... and I am the man who was once called...

    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.

  7. 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.

    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...
