Edge of bat

My son-in-law and I play every day (we have our own table and games room)

As we get better I am finding more and more that his shots catch the edge of my bat (or a finger) and that ends the rally. There is no limitation on the size of the bat so would I benefit from using a slightly bigger bat?

And a related question: Should I watch the ball right on to the bat? 

Many thanks

Hi Bryan,

I don’t think the size of the bat will make much of a difference.  I think though your other idea of watching the ball is right on the mark.  I think watching the ball will fix a lot of these issues.

It is great that you and your son-in-law have regular training partners.  Nice combination.
