Learn how to check if your Table Tennis ball is perfectly round and if it is firm enough.
and if it is kinda rough it is not a good ball
Just today I practiced with Stiga cup ball.It doesn't feel that heavy on the racket as a Stag 3 star but way better than that horrible Shield ball.
Shall I persist with it?, between it's a 2-star ball when I entered it's details online. Is there anything special with Star rating to ball when all are 40mm.Are Yasaka Training balls and The Butterfly training ball you mentioned on other article 3-star?The only company of ball I am finding here is Stag,Shield,Stiga cup,GKI and DHS. Of course Stag,DHS are expensive.
The Stiga Cup balls are OK for training.
Usually the more stars the better the ball is. But these are not always rated the same between different manufacturers.
You are very helpful person Alois Sir.
When I check your biodata on this site it says you started to coach back in 1986, the year I was born. It's a privilege to be on this site and interact with great experienced persons like you.
Since I am a working employee I get to practice only 1hr a day but I am practicing at home by hitting against wall and letting the ball bounce on dining table. Only problem I am finding is that when the ball impacts concrete wall it attaches to itself some paint/whitewash and leaves marks on my bat. I would like to cover up that wall (atleast to a rectangular box about 1mx50cm).Can you suggest any good material for covering which would keep the bounce realistic.I tried a decolam sheet but the ball kind of skidding on the surface and coming slowly after it hits it.
I am pondering about attaching a rectangular rubber door mat on the wall, and I would be glad if you can suggest some other inexpensive material.
Thanks Ganesh. I would try just the wood and practice consistency. You could try a rubber mat as well to see if it replicates the bounce off a bat. Let me know how it goes.
Yes for sure sir, I would look out for rubber door mat with correct design(hopefully plain) and purchase a two side tape.I'll inform after I get them and practice.
I am about to purchase Adidas C-100 or Joola Roskpoff Allround blade can any of you compare their pros and cons for me please?
Ganesh, i would prefer joola rossi force, much better
Sir how prefer a good ball!

The above video tried to explain the things to look for. Stiga Cup are OK as a training ball.
