in our league we have a long pimple player with 5 different bats, which everyone has different rubbers. If you play against him he takes a bat for the warm up and than without saying any word, changes his bat for the match. Is this rouleconform?
And if it is allowed to change the bat after the warm up, have I to do the warm up with him or is it possible to insist on starting the match without the warm up?
I had a look at the rules. This is the rule about changing rackets:
A racket shall not be replaced during an individual match unless it is accidentally damaged so badly that it cannot be used; if this happens the damaged racket shall be replaced immediately by another which the player has brought with him to the playing area or one which is handed to him in the playing area.
Hope this clears it up.
