    Finger slipping

    Heres a cool point from today:

    Also, does anyone have a problem with their finger slipping on non-tacky rubbers?

    All the time when they are sweaty. I just wipe with a towel between each six points. Not an issue for me.

    Three ways to solve this.
    1. Wipe your hands and rubber after every point
    2. Wear gloves
    3. Cauterize all sweat glands on finger
    🤣
    Achieve your dreams, or die trying.

    Or you could wear a sweat band to limit sweat dripping from above wrist.

    wipe both your limbs and the rubber. Or, your air-conditioning is too cold. Condensation perhaps?

    Since everybody's giving an actual advise, I will do so as well: just sweat less.

    Al of these won’t help if you’re like me who sweats like I’ve got a personal rain cloud above me. 🤣 Only way I found that helps is to just go with it lol sooner or later you’ll learn that you don’t need to hold your paddle that tight, so the slippery fingers doesn’t bother me now. Only problem I have is when I serve forehand when sweating, my rubber gets a couple of drops on them, not a big deal if I noticed it before serving, I’ll just wipe it off on my shorts, but sometimes I don’t notice it and after loosing the point I’ll look at my paddle and I see a big splat.🤣

    Yes, 3 T-shirts and 3 towels for 1 training. Ball wet, fingers wet, blade wet, searching for a bit drier place on towel, drops on the table. This sucks. Good to hear am not alone :-)

    Why don't you just wipe your palm on the table near the net like every sane person who wants their hands dry and their opponents pissed?

    I know a guy who uses a chalk-like powder like that which rock climbers use to control hand sweat.
    The only thing I complain about is not being able to play enough
