I’ve had another question from a table tennis parent, this time regarding equipment. You can view other Q&A posts, and ask me a question yourself, here.
Do people that are playing table tennis regularly keep a spare bat ready to go, or rely on running repairs? My daughter recently had a rubber start to come off her bat, prior to a tournament, and it required some urgent repairs.
Also, many players at clubs appear to only have one blade but to me it seems sensible to have a spare one made up just in case. Does the rubber deteriorate once cut and glued even if not used? Could this be why?”
