When the best in the World battled in Rio, each used the combination of equipment that gave them the best chance to win. Each has a different combination (likely taking their sponsors into account), often mixing rubber types and even mixing brands. Find your personal best combination at Paddle Palace.

In this sport, equipment and technology are truly important. Sometimes the terminology can be confusing. Understanding the labels can help you maneuver through the maze of equipment options available to you. Below you will find a list of STIGA’s blade tech terms and specs, STIGA’s rubbers tech terms and specs, and a Glossary of terms used with STIGA products.
We have new STIGA Cases and Bags, all on special today! The STIGA Multiball Stand, on wheels and with adjustable height, is a new item our customers have been asking for. Also new is the STIGA Ball Bag that can hold 100 plus balls, and the cute STIGA Minibat Pure.
The 2016 Trials were for the express purpose of picking a team for the World Championships, so this is not necessarily a limitation on who the Chinese will send to the Olympics this summer. That said, this is a big first step towards Rio, and there were some surprises.
Equipment is just one piece in creating a champion. Still, in this sport more than most others, equipment can have a drastic impact on the style and quality of play. That’s why we are taking a close look at the equipment used by the players at ICC. Inarguably, ICC has had a part in creating more champions in the US over the last decade than any other club.

Over the last decade, ICC players have had a tremendous impact on the sport of table tennis in the US. This year at the 2015 US Nationals was yet another opportunity to showcase their players. Paddle Palace is proud to sponsor the ICC and its continued efforts towards excellence in our sport.
Perhaps their new STIGA table from Paddle Palace helped the Trail Blazers come out winners last night ??!?
