Hello Aasim. Your father is right (like they usually are) Hard woods are also heavy. But in the case of table tennis bats they are also too hard. In other words, you don't need the racket to be a rocket. There are certain cedars hard enough and light enough to make a good TT bat. Are you planning to make a racket? I can give you some tips about the whole process.
