How to Select the Table Tennis Racket

Table Tennis is also known as Ping Pong, it is a sport played by two or four people. Table tennis is administered by International Table Tennis Federation (ITTF).  Players use a wooden racket covered with rubber on it to hit the ball on a hard flat surface table. The racket is also referred as bat or paddle. The wooden portion of the racket is called as blade. Table Tennis Racket is made of various kind of wood with different surfaces. Player select the racket with a variety of rubber on its blade for different spin and control.

Table Tennis is a very popular game these days and its popularity creates more confusion to select its equipment. There are several features to keep in mind while selecting a table tennis racket. The primary components of the racket are Blade, Blade handle and Paddle rubber.

Before evaluating the racket one should identify the level of the game as he/ she is a beginner, professional or a veteran player. A beginner is the one who wants to play table tennis for fun. Indeed table tennis is an exciting and thrilling game. So the beginner needs a basic racket to start with.

A professional player is the one who plays in a competitive manner. The player needs a racket according to the level of the game. Professional player need a racket with power, control, accuracy and spin on the ball.

As people get physically and mentally relaxed by playing table tennis, so some people use to continue playing it after their retirement age also. Such veteran players need a bat with less power and less stroke. So they need a racket according to that requirement.

Now we will focus on the main aspects one should take care while selecting a racket:

How to select the Table Tennis RacketsBlade:  The blade of the racket plays an important role in the game, the surface of the blade hit the ball while playing. The blade is made of wood with the coating of rubber. The coating of the rubber makes no divergence to the beginner but it creates a massive difference for a professional player. The weight of the blade is an important feature of the racket. It varies to between 70 -100 grams. The spin of the blade depends on the weight of the blade, if the blade is light weighted then it is appropriate for a fast game which is preferable by the beginners. The professional players need force and energy so they prefer a heavy weight blade.

Parameter 01 : Blade

Blade Handle:  The handle of the racket is the part which is in the hand of the player. Player should be comfortable to hold the racket. There are various kind of grips available in the market but the most commonly used are shakehand grip and the penhold grip. If the player holds the racket as he is shaking hand with someone then the player should go with shakehand racket and if the player holds the racket as he is holding a pen then the player should go with penhold racket. There are four patterns of  blade handle flared, straight, anatomical and conical. Many players believe that flared handles are easy to hold. Straight handles are known for their defensive game and backhand strokes. Anatomical handle is like as flared handle but has a segment in the middle that better fits in the hand of the player. Conical handles are preferable by the large hand s players.

Parameter 02: Blade Handle

Paddle Rubber: The rubber of the blade is responsible for the feel and response of the ball. The rubber of the paddle maintains the speed and control of the racket. A thin rubber is appropriate for the players who need control of the ball and the player who prefer the speed need a thick rubber coating.

Parameter 03: Paddle Rubber

These are basic characters one should determine while selecting a table tennis racket. The kind of racket that a player select depends on his comfort and the level of the game.

The player has to select the Best Cricket shoes according to his need.

The player has to remember few tips while selecting the shoes. As the order of the batsman and bowler is different so is the need of their shoes. Batting, bowling and fielding are the three trait of the game. For each trait we need special kind of shoes. All three traits need the shoes with the best grip to the ground and for that we suggest the spike soles. The manufacturers give emphasis on the toe protection which makes these shoes for all rounder.

Types of Cricket SHoe

The Upper: The upper is the part of the shoe which covered the foot. The upper part is in the close contact to the foot so it should be flexible and comfortable. Most of the shoes upper offer the ventilation in the field. Most of the shoes are designed in the low-cut style. In this style the shoe finishes below the ankle offers flexibility. Bowler’s shoes are designed in mid or high cut style. This style offer great support to the ankle during the delivery and follow through stage and try to prevent injury.

Parts of Cricket SHoe

The Sockliner: Sockliners are also known as footbeds. It makes the direct contact with the foot. Shockliner should have extra cushioning to provide good comfort, control, support, shape, moisture or smell of the shoe. Some shoes have removable and replaceable shockliner to keep their shoes fresh.

The Midsole:  The midsole is the layer between the outsole and insole. A midsole is designed for shock absorption. Bowlers need good cushioning as they have to run hard to bowl. Batsman needs cushioning so that their long innings can be comfortable.

The Heel:  the heel keeps foot safe and secure. It needs to fasten the back of the foot and heel should be comfortable. Bowlers need a secure heel so that when they step down it should be on its place. Batsman needs a comfortable heel so they don’t feel irritated while running between the creases.

The Outsole:  The outsole is the part of the shoe which is always in contact with the ground. The outsole is made of very durable material such as polyurethane. Most of the cricket shoes have spikes on the sole so that it can make a good grip with the ground. Some of the shoes have dimple or cleat feature for indoor or synthetic surface. Bowler’s shoes should have flat outsole for a great impact on the surface and give more support to the foot.

The Spikes: Spikes on the shoes helps to provide a grip on the ground. It offers an immense grip to wet or greasy field.

Trusstic System/ Torsion Bar:  Some brands include a characteristic to increase strength and stability even as minimizing torsion of the mid and outsole and help to reduce injuries. Shoes are made of firm and flexible material to support the arches of the foot.

Lasting: There are three ways to attach upper of the shoe to the midsole called slip lasting, board lasting and partial or combination lasting. In slip lasting the upper of the shoe is pulled over the last and glued or stitched to the midsole. In the midsole the upper part is attached to the bottom of a flexible board atop the midsole. Partial or combination lasting has the board technique in the heel and slip technique in the fore foot.

Features of Cricket Shoe

Material used for shoes:

Leather: Previously leather was in high demand but now a day’s synthetic material has taken its place. The reduction of leather is due to its cost, it is quite high in case and synthetic material are quite cheaper in comparison.

Eva/ Phylon: Ethylene-Vinyl Acetate (EVA) is expanded rubber or foam rubber and is used for shock absorption in the midsole. Eva has a number of qualities as shock absorption, light weight, odorless, glossy finish, water proof, and UV resistance and cheap in cost.  Generally EVA is molded by an injection molding technique, but can also be molded by high temperature compression molding which creates a different material with almost the same characteristics but with high density. This material is known as Phylon.

SpEVA:  SpEVA is a midsole material developed from EVA by Asics. It has bounce back feature and decreases the midsole breakdown while running. It has several other features as high durability and shock absorption. You can also include in the shoe as an extra layer called as lasting.
