How to choose your material?

How to choose your table tennis equipment ?

It is not always easy to find your way through the wide range of blade and rubbers materials available for table tennis practice. Table tennis material cannot be bought like a product from a supermarket. It must be a well-considered purchase in view of its cost and the different technicalities. Shop-Ping gives you here a series of advices to make the right choice.


1. Analyze and know your game well:
here are a few styles of play that can be found in table tennis: defender, versatile player, attacker close to the table in hitting and counter-attacking, attacker close to the table or at mid-distance in topspin, .... It is also important to consider your level. You should not underestimate yourself in order to get the best possible combinations of rubbers. Don't hesitate to ask for advice from your teammates and/or club members in order to get objective opinions.

2. Think about your purchase: after you know your game, don't hesitate to read the descriptions and characteristics of the different existing materials and to compare them. That's why, for each material proposed in the catalog, Shop-Ping has added all the necessary information to inform you and help you in your choice.

3. Are you a beginner? Don't rush! Although the 2 previous points are very helpful, don't forget that you still have to learn and perfect everything. That's why we suggest that you contact us directly to help you choose a racket that will help you develop your game at the best price/quality ratio.

If you still need more help, don't hesitate to contact us so that we can guide you in your purchases. Beyond being a reseller, we are also advisors with the objective of satisfying you as much as possible.

You play with other brands of equipment that you can't find on our e-shop?

Are you currently playing with equipment from another brand than those sold by Shop-Ping? In such a case, one is often afraid to make the wrong choice. But do you think that the level of play today is the same as it was, say, 10 years ago? Certainly not: the rules, the technicality, ... everything has changed with the progress.

Even if renewing your equipment represents a certain expense, we advise you each time to question your current equipment: the quality of your racket will also determine your future level of play and will help you to progress. Therefore, do not hesitate to ask us for a personal advice by informing us about the equipment you currently use, your playing style and what you are looking for. Based on this information, we will be able to give you a personalized advice to help you progress.

These values are based on the same scale for all brands, so you can easily compare them.

In this case, do not hesitate to contact us for advice.
