I am going for the tournament and I need help with what equipment I need e.g (kind of) clothing, number of bats and so on. I would like to know everything so I don't embarrass myself in the tournament. Thanks in advance? 

P. S should I use a pre made bat, just with tacky rubber or (iv had this set up for a while) or should I upgrade to the custom made bat?

Hi Andre,

Just make sure you have a bat with approved rubber on it.  You can check the rubber first to see if it has an ITTF stamp on it.  Then you can check on the ITTF website if the rubber is OK.  If that is OK, the just use it for the tournament.

Really you only need 1 bat.  Wear a pair of shorts and a sports top.  Make sure the sports top isn’t the same colour as the ball they are going to be using, either white or orange.

What type of bat are you using.

Don’t worry too much about things.  There are a lot of players that play tournaments for the first time so they should be understanding.

Iv got a Dunlop pre made bat (flux extreme) stripped off the forehand rubber and put DHS hurricane 3.  So I don't have to have table tennis branded clothing??

No you don’t need branded clothing at all.  Probably safest to wear a shirt with one colour on it and a reasonably dark colour then you won’t have any problems.
