There's always a few over-enthusiastic characters out there that play just to win, and make fun of those they beat. Well if you've been on the receiving end of this 'abuse', this guide may be just for you. This guide is for those casual players, that have acquired some basic skills in table tennis, can generate a little spin on the ball, but don't take it seriously enough to play competition at clubs. It takes advantage of two very different rubbers that you can put on either side your bat, which very few casual players understand.
The key to making this strategy work is spin and deception, with your opponent not knowing what type of spin is on the ball. This usually results in your opponent missing the ball completely, or hitting it in the net or over the table.
The basic equipment you need for this strategy is a bat with 2 totally contrasting rubbers on either side, one a very tacky (sticky) and spinney rubber (such as most Chinese rubbers) and one 'long pimple' rubber. The spinney rubber is obviously very good for generating spin, whereas the long pimple rubber is unique in that it returns most your opponent's spin back to him. These types of rubbers can be picked up fairly cheap at quite a few online shops, such as One of a Kind Trading in Australia for example. A few recommendations are given at the end of this article. The blade (the bat without the rubbers) is not very important for this strategy to be successful, as the rubbers do most of the work. So if you don't already have a blade, you can buy a cheap one from the same shop Cheap Kyle Wilber Jersey , and they'll normally put it together for you free of charge.
Technically you need one red and one black rubber on either side of the bat. However this is really only a requirement for competition, so if you only play casually this is not necessary. To be totally ruthless and make it even harder for your opponent, you can have the same colour rubber on both sides, so that he cannot judge which one you're hitting with. Because the spin coming off the two different rubber is so different, hitting the ball with one side followed by a hit from the other side will produce very different results, leaving your opponent totally confused. However most casual players don't even look at what side you hit with, so it may not be as great an advantage.
Putting it into practice:
Ok, so you've got your new 'evil' weapon, what strategy do you use to make the most of it? Well there's two parts to this (1) when you serve (2) when your receive:
1. When you serve:
Put as much backspin andor sidespin on the ball with your tacky rubber by brushing the ball with a forward action underneath (and sideways for sidespin). With these rubbers this is much easier to do, but will still take a little practice. This will probably win you quite a few points outright, but some will come back. When it comes back, it will invariably have significant spin coming back, either your own, or spin that your opponent imparts. Hit the next shot with the long pimple rubber, don't hit it hard or try to attack it, but try to keep it low as possible but make sure it's on the table. The long pimple rubber will actually reverse the spin that's coming towards you Cheap Jeremy Mincey Jersey
