Is having carbon on a blade necessary for playing in an ittf tournament?
No it isn’t. There are no approved blades for ITTF competition. The rules just state:
|2.04.01||The racket may be of any size, shape or weight but the blade shall be flat and rigid.|
|2.04.02||At least 85% of the blade by thickness shall be of natural wood; an adhesive layer within the blade may be reinforced with fibrous material such as carbon fibre, glass fibre or compressed paper, but shall not be thicker than 7.5% of the total thickness or 0.35mm, whichever is the smaller.|
