I usually play at room temperature. I currently don’t have a table tennis table available (due to the pandemic) so I built one (why not?). I currently have no room inside the garage, so the only option for me is to play in a fairly large shed with lots of space. I live in northern Sweden, where the winters are cold, latley it has been -10 degrees c (14 degrees f), so im wondering if it is safe to play in cold weather without destroying my rubbers.

My rubbers are Yasaka Rakza 9 and Yasaka Rakza 7, if that matters.

Hi Kevin,

It is OK to play in the cold.  The rubbers won't be effected however, you will find that the rubbers will feel a bit slower and not as responsive in the cold.
