Hello Alois,

I was watching Table Tennis Daily on Youtube and I was wondering, what are your thoughts on the ITTF approval of other coloured rubbers after the 2020 Olympics?

Do you think it will make TT more popular or do you think this is a complete waste of time and that they should use their money elsewhere.

It would be great to listen to what you and other people think about this.

Hi Gerard,

I am not a fan of this new move.

It just increases the choices for players and doesn't really increase any performance.  It may look nice but I am not convicted of that either.

I think the only people that will really benefit eventually are the manufacturers who will get players changing between colours instead of really concentrating on finding the right equipment.

These choices are already too distracting for a lot of players.

I agree.
This is only a step to gain more money.
I think the ITTF representatives should have spent their time for something more important.
