Dimitrij Ovtcharov practised with the new poly ball in Russia recently. The first rally is with a celluloid ball, the second and third rallies are with the new plastic ball.

Dimitrij Ovtcharov commented, "I think table tennis will change with the new ball. There is less rotation so the ralleys may become more attracktve! It will be exciting to find out how table tennis develops".

Dimitri Ovcharov sagte: "Ich denke, Tennis mit dem neuen Ball zu ändern hat weniger Spin, so Rallyes können attracktve Es wird spannend werden, um herauszufinden, wie man Tischtennis entwickeln.!."
Aber dann wird die Geschwindigkeit zu groß sein und die Kameras werden kontinuierlich Sendung in Zeitlupe übertragen

Ovtcharov and other players are doing great work on their social media players. This sort of stuff we want to see more often. Ovtcharov comment that he thinks this will change the game, I think it sure will.

I wonder if there will be players who are ranked around 100, and will really benefit with the new ball. Or will player rankings stay similar.... will be interesting.
 
As there is less spin, low level players may have even greater difficulty in pulling off upset performances.
But I can see that at lower levels where I occupy, we'll probably see the return of the pushers. That is, a player who simply push and push and push and push until his opponent breaks down and misses a shot.

And don't forget that Sharara also wants to raise the net back to where it was in the thirties making pushing again very effective.

Easy, they will disappear...

First of all, let me say, the following is just a guess. I have no evidence.

I think that if there is more effort required to put backspin on the ball, the equivalent to pushing more weight, then the same will be true for putting topspin on the ball, lifting more weight. It is harder to spin for both the chopper and the looper. The looper will have less backspin to lift, but it will be harder to lift it. Again, just a guess.

Sadly, i think you are right :(

Guys, I am thinking the new ball could benefit defenders. Because the new ball is slightly slower defenders will have more time. But on the other hand could be easier for attackers to set themselves up due to the less spin on the ball...

I just want to make an example here: When 38mm balls changed to 40mm many defenders got down in WR.

Anyway, the chops will have less spin so the opponent will just smash it even with more speed than before.

I really cant say if this change is good for the sport. A few questions must be asked....will this change further help the chinese dominance? Will making the sport less dependent on spin take away from some of the specticle we have come to admire and appreciate? Will taking away the speed effect of the sport further really help improve spectators fascination of the sport? Or will it make it a bit longer and maybe a tad boring to watch? I truely love this sport and i hope that the change helps us more than does harm.

Technology will find its way regarding heavy spin on the new poly. Defenders nowadays dont just defend they have manage to adapt and have a set of attacking skills. All of us has to learn and master, its just a matter of time.

I'm excited to try the new polyballs. They will be available in our country this May. :)

Hello Harvey, a verygood mentor from your country told me that Palio polyballs can be bought from greenpaddle shops
