Which racket coverings are authorised by the ITTF?
Find out here...
With effect from 1 September 2008 the International Table Tennis Federation (ITTF) introduced several new rules and regulations relating to the table tennis racket and also started testing rackets to ensure that they complied with all these new rules and regulations as well as all existing rules and regulations.
In addition, Regulation 3.02.01.03 states...
The covering material on a side of the blade used for striking the ball shall be currently authorised by the ITTF and shall be attached to the blade so that the ITTF logo, the ITTF number (when present), the supplier and brand names are clearly visible near the handle.
From April 2021 the ITTF now produce a list of authorised rubbers four times per year (January, April, July, October) so you can check that the rubbers you buy are authorised.
