Table Tennis Balls: Going Plastic for Future Events

Samsonov ITTF photo Commencing on Tuesday 1st July 2014, all International Table Tennis Federation sanctioned and World Title events will be played using plastic composite balls instead of the traditional celluloid ball. There are no changes to the regulations already in place; plastic balls have been in accordance with regulations since the 1950′s. Table tennis events may still be played using celluloid balls. On the change, the ITTF President Adham Sharara stated: “Any change in sport usually divides the participants into three groups. The “optimists” who believe the change is for the best; the “pessimists” who believe the change is a disaster; and finally the “indifferent” who just go with the flow.”
