In table tennis you can choose between one of two bat choices. You can either choose a pre made bat which is already assembled with a blade, a forehand and backhand rubber or the custom made option where you have the flexibility to choose your own rubbers and blade. In this article I will discuss both options so that you can decide the best type of bat that would suit your needs.
Pre Made Table Tennis Bats
As I mentioned above, pre made bats are factory assembled which basically means they can be obtained relatively easily without too much problem. It also means that you do not have to worry about what type of rubbers or blade to use. Another advantage with using a pre made bat is they are often cheaper than custom bats due to them being mass produced and being preassembled and supplied to retail suppliers direct from the factory.
Overall, I would recommend pre made bats for the beginning player new to the sport, but if you are a more experienced player then you may want to consider acquiring a custom bat which we will discuss in the next section.
Custom Table Tennis Bats
Custom made table tennis bats are generally assembled by players who buy a blade of their choice and then buy two rubbers (one black and one red) to glue onto the forehand and backhand side of the new bat. A custom bat is popular with more experienced players as they are aware what strengths they have and therefore know what they need as far as choosing the best and most appropriate rubbers to compliment their personal playing style. This is the main advantage of playing with a custom bat.
However, it needs to be mentioned that the blade and rubbers that make up a custom bat which are purchased separately can often be very costly.

The game table tennis had a rich and flavourful history. When it was first created, there were little controversies surrounding it. It wasn’t permitted to be played outside England because of the sole reason that the game is a high paced competition and may require an impulsive and artless action and reflex. The people believed that table tennis will just damage the visual capacity of the competitors as well as its audience eyes. As a matter of fact, there are other countries that are planning to ban this game.
However during period of 1920, England exerted a lot of effort to save the game. They created ways in order to promote this game not only on their neighbouring country but to the whole world as well. Their first problem was the official name for the game. They generated a lot of names but they opted for it. In 1921, an authorized body was formed which is referred as Table Tennis Association. After five years, a bigger organization was formed again which is known as International Table Tennis Federation. After these organizations were introduced in the world, different competitions whether local or international was started. It was London that first hosted the foremost international competition for this game. It was date last 1927.
From then on, a lot of people were addicted with the sport. With the continuing demand and rise of game enthusiasts, it paved way for more enhancements. It was on 1950 that the racket was developed to a more refined one. They have placed rubber and sponge in order to have a more sophisticated look. Actually there were a lot of methodological variations created. It permitted the players to play a wide variety of stroke. Now you can see table tennis being played in Olympic Games. With a wide range of spectators, you can really say that table tennis or commonly known as ping pong had a rich and flavourful history.
