Table Tennis Racket Control

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.

You can read more about these rules and regulations here.

In addition, Regulation 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.

Here is a list of authorised racket coverings
Valid 1 April 2024 - 30 June 2024

How this site is financed (AATT) is completely free to use.

However, it's run by one person only (Martin Hughes) and has high running costs that need to be paid for.

This web site receives thousands of visitors every day and therefore, to keep it completely free to use, advertising and affiliate links appear on this web site.

However, these adverts and affiliate links do not influence the advice and recommendations given on this web site.

My intention has always been to give you the best possible information, advice and recommendations, based on my 50+ years involvement in the sport.


Adverts appear automatically on my site, provided by third parties, and are not directly controlled by me.

When you click on an advert, it's tracked to AATT and will generate a small payment to me.

Affiliate links*

Affiliate links are links to other web sites who sell related table tennis products.

These work in the same way as normal links, but when you click on it, the link is tracked to AATT and, if you make a purchase, may generate a small payment to me.

They do not cost you anything to use, and any products you choose to buy will not cost you any more than if you went directly to that web site.

These are principally links to Megaspin, Amazon and Bribar, but may include others from time to time.

These links are identified by having an asterisk (*) by its side.

AATT cannot identify any user who clicks on an advert or affiliate link.
