    Where can I buy Table Tennis 'skin tight' under shorts?

    Hi guys,

    I'm looking to purchase some TT 'under shorts'. Are they sold by TT companies?

    Take a look at this video and it is the black skin tight under shorts that Robert Gardos is wearing under his navy butterfly shorts.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0glnBwRoIec

    Please can someone point me in the right direction?

    Every runners store has many options, i`m using long tights and long sleeve tops in winter both are designed for runners.

    What kind of tight shorts is Gardos likely to be using? There are too many options, I am not sure which are best for TT.

    They could be anything.

    Literally every major sports company make them.

    In Sports Direct alone, you'll find Under Armour, Nike, Adidas, Reebok - All will have compression shorts (which is what they are called).

    I use Nike or Under Armour ones - But prefer the ones that don't come too far down my leg like the chap in that video.

    The question, I think, should rather be: what gives you comfort, support, and freedom of movement?

    Me, I’m all for Saive type shorts. Need to feel unrestrained. I know the trends have gone the other way, but that’s it for me. And that’s pretty much all I care about.

    Oh, grow up. He has legs, like nearly all humans, those excepted being unfortunate.

    Sorry, but I have no patience for modern day body shaming, whether in the form of extremist puritanism or otherwise.

    I’m not upset, but don’t think you realize how that works. (Your sister so fat. No, joking! No harm, right? Didn’t think so.)

    Take that other remark into account, about hurting the eyes of the viewers. Disturbing, to me, if that’s the first thing to mind when seeing a picture of a great athlete. Woo hoo, he has a body. Must be covered up!

    I don't like any kind of tightening and slimming. Like to feel free.
    And not good for the balls.

    That does not matter. In you or anybody wants to play im a niqaab, a diver’s suit or ALL SPANDEX, I don’t care. If you’re reinforcing the stereotypical notion of a body that must be covered extensively to protect onlooker’s sensitivities, then I cast my frown upon thee. It’s rejection of behaviour damaging to others, not anger or upset. Nuff said.

    Then there are not effective and practical advantages, just aesthetical, thanks for answering.

    I have nothing but love for that man. Looks like track split shorts. Where do you get those nowadays?

    The world needs more of Gavid Rumgay. Still waiting for his report from the Nigerian open.

    Thanks guys for the help! I notice there are many different kinds of compression shorts designed to do slightly different things. Can anyone suggest ones that would work best for the movements of TT?

    No compression is needed for the movements in TT.

    The question is do YOU need compression, and if yes - what kind of compression you need for the reason you need it.
    After that you'll have to decide is the compression you need suitable for TT, and if not - what compromise you have to make, with TT or with the compression.
    If there is no particular reason to use compression - just don't do it.
    If there is a particular reason - follow the reason.
    If the reason is only esthetic - follow the esthetics and use the minimum compression available
