      Playing Table Tennis With 100 Year Old Bats

      Hey guys it's Dan and Will here back with a new video, playing table tennis with 100 year old Slazenger Whiff Whaff bats! That's right 100 year old bats, pretty incredible! They were manufactured between 1900-1910 by Slazenger in the UK and are made of wood and pig skin! Check out how well they still play!

      10 out of 10 for me. I started out going all like, hey, what's with these gimmicky gimmicks and why bother and why the annoying BG music, and then upon the first hits my jaw dropped. I'd never have guessed play like that would get done with these whiff whaff Slazengers. I'm in awe and have learned something today.

      That's an entertaining video. With pig skin . I was surprised the gameplay looked rather normal. The rackets seemed quite slow compared to modern ones?

      Where did you get these? How much do they cost?

      You should have gotten an appropriate table for that:

      P.S. I would have played 2 meters away to be sure not to hit the table with them.

      I'm curious where did you get them? And how much do they cost?
