Is there a difference while playing on ITTF approved boards and non ITTF approved boards (25 mm top)? I often find that I play much better on ITTF approved boards compared to other boards. What could be the reason behind it? I own Stiga Premium roller at home. Is this table useful to practice for tournaments? My office has a 25 mm Stag International TT board (not ITTF approved). I really find it difficult to play forehand topspin against both backspin and block as I feel that the ball just skids off the surface with low bounce giving less time to play the next stroke.
I play TT at office during lunch hours in formals.
If the table has a 25mm top it won't be greatly different in bounce. It may also be the floor. Is the table in the office on a carpet or solid wood or concrete type flooring.
The Stag tables do tend to have a slightly lower bounce. Don't worry about changing between the two. It is good to become slightly adaptable.
