For some reason I feel like I am able to play better when I tuck in my shirt. What about you alois and the other pingskillers?

Hi Jasper,

It is about being comfortable.

I think I carried during my playing days of having it tucked and not tucked. Currently definitely not tucked.

What about our other readers?

But in table tennis it is so irritating that I have to stop the rally due to it.

I think it depends on the shirt.  You don't want a shirt that is flapping around but if it is tucked in tightly it can constrict free movement.  So on balance (IMHO) get a shirt that feels comfortable but not too loose when not tucked in.

I noticed almost all of the top players have their shirts tucked in too.
