Disaster might strike at your next tournament…
You might accidentally drop your racket and break it during a match.
You might accidentally damage your rubber on the corner of the table.
You might have rubber that is somehow illegal.
Your racket might get stolen.
Unfortunately, there are problems that arise. Fortunately, most players are prepared enough to have a backup racket; HOWEVER, most player don’t like their backup racket as much as their first racket. Many players have backup rackets that are different from their primary racket.

Table Tennis athlete Sarah Jalli has been working night and day to improve her table tennis skills and prepare for the 2024 Olympics. Last weekend, at the Samson Dubina Table Tennis Academy, she racked up 28 wins at the Patty and Si Wasserman Junior Table Tennis Tournament to take home the titles of u15 champ and u18 champ.
Many table tennis athletes begin the season with refining their basic technique and working on developing a solid base for footwork and consistency with many systematic drills. As they get closer to their peak tournament, they then begin a more tactical approach. When they know which exact opponents they will compete against, then they begin specific tactical preparation for that exact opponent.
This is good, but I’m going to propose a slightly different approach for you…
