Martin Gunn from the UK played an epic behind the back shot against Charlie Ellis of Murrayfield TTC with a sand paper bat!

You have got to love the caption on the back of Martin's t-shirt to! :D
Shot played at the Corby Smash Sandpaper Team Event at the Corby Smash TTC!


Thumbs up for Martin Gunn! Could this be the best ever sand paper shot of all time!?

Martin Gunn plays with a classic hard bat in all tournaments, not just sandpaper events, and holds his own against some very decent inverted sponge players.


Martin is a very good player with this stuff! He actually went back to normal sponge recently however he has gone back to the hard bat.

P.s. loving the TableTennisDaily tshirt hes got on there! :)

Yeah, he is very good. I saw him in action during the recent Corby Smash tournament earlier this summer - his group's matches were on a table next to mine. He was still playing with his hardbat at the time though, and his feel for the ball and ball placement sometimes appeared simply unreal.

Well what can I say, Im seeing this video all over the place! Thanks to Dan for getting it out there, and im only sorry that I wasnt wearing the normal TTD shirt!...Think its a shot weve all pulled off at some stage, but not often you have someone there filming it. For the record, the shirt lol...."KEEP CALM AND PLAY WITH A HARD ONE!".......I normally play with a hardbat so its a 'play on words' :)......I thought the police would be knocking at some point today!! :)
