      Playing Table Tennis With NEW COLOUR RUBBERS

      Hey guys, Welcome to the 1st ever episode of Talking Table Tennis!

      In these shows we will be covering all aspects of the game including equipment, table tennis news, controversies and much much more!

      For our 1st episode we have managed to (via the ITTF) get our hands on some of the new colour table tennis rubbers that have been approved by the ITTF.

      These will be legal to use in all competition worldwide as of September 2020 after the Tokyo Olympics!



      Comment below what you think of this new change by the ITTF.

      I can't see rubber manufacturers being able to afford making Tenergy pink, blue, red, etc. So yeah I'm guessing that your "X" brand will take on a singular color & black kinda helping identify it visually from afar.

      I like the change and allowing people to express themselves however they want. People who prefer black & red certainly can stay with that.

      That being said, perhaps it was the lighting with the shadow but that green did look kinda dark like the black naturally would be when your blade face was closed... Twiddler combo bat players rejoice.

      Well it would be fun if there was a type of rubber that leaves an impact mark for a short while - like 3-5 seconds. Like where the ball hit. That would be some animation to the sport ha-ha

      That would be my question also. As there is one Apolonia blade with Butterfly edge tape and one DHS Fang Bo (?) thereĀ“s a guess ...

      The bright yellow green rubber is not pleasing to the eyes especially the opponent.

      Those are ESN rubbers. I once had a sample of Aurus Prime before it was released and it also had this chip at the bottom

      They need to make sure that neither color causes trouble with either white, orange or the upcoming yellow balls, and normally table colours also.

      Whatever background or floors in the halls is a different thing, but that will be more of a personal than a general problem.
