      What if ittf does the research and publish it beforehand?

      For leisure you already have all this colors in -- you got it right -- leisure table tennis, which you play outdoors with leisure rackets, which are already colorful and all this

      Those recreational colors mean they will associate their game to real table tennis using the same colors.

      They couldn't do so with black and red leisure rackets, but now everything is changed. That's the level of discussion, thank you.

      You are half right
      ITTF didn't come up with this rule change.
      It was tabled at the AGM by Hong Kong

      the motive was that since the rule change back then was to create a different colour to separate fh to bh.
      so now they say, why limit it to red and black

      there is no other motive on the change other than someone querying why they are limited to red and black.

      The ball colour has a lot more "common sense" to changes (eye catches the ball etc)
      I can't find any other common sense reasoning to the rubber change and I guess there is none other than the one I stated above from the AGM

      Do they allow white rubber? That would give a huge advantage on hiding the serve.

      The equipment committee would confirm the colours in due course.
      however the ball colour alike rubbers will not be possible, as they have announced that already.
      So I guess you won't get your whites, yellow, orange rubbers. The colour or shades of colour will need to be significance to prevent the ball from getting "loss"

      Exactly.

      And only "bright" colours on one side, with the other side being black by default, so the dark blue in the top right corner and others will also be impossible.

      Look like the cheap ping pong paddle for kids. I still prefer the good old (red and black) rubbers.

      Our sport is on the way down. Do these highly paid ITTF guys have nothing better to decide ???? EVen the world championships get as good as ZERO exposure on TV anymore !!

      The ITTF better get some good people aboard , or else the sport will go down even further.

      First thing to do is immediately go back to the celluloid ball and stop the plastic nonsense !!

      Please, don't blame ITTF

      Please go and ask your own national federation why they vote for it at the AGM.
      apparently the rule was won by 8 votes.
      so if 5 more countries say no, this rule wouldn't have been passed...
