Hi there coach, I have problems in wiping my rubbers when wet. My hands tend to sweat a lot which makes my rubber wet. Wiping the rubber is my next problem because my entire body sweats a lot too which makes my shirt and shorts wet. So I can't wipe my rubbers on my shorts or shirt. What should I use in wiping my rubbers? thanks in advance

Hi Wayne,

I think the best solution is to keep a towel handy just for this purpose.  Do not use this one for wiping yourself down.

You are only supposed to use a towel after every 6 points but if you show the umpire that you need to wipe your bat down because of excessive sweat they will usually allow you to do so.

Hi Wayne,

You need to wipe out your hands(start from elbow) with dry towel because sweat can come over your racket and keep some cotton balls to wipe out racket.
