 For my backhand I am using a Tibhar Grass Ultra rubber which is a new one.I have only played two weeks from it. But two pimples are missing in the middle of the rubber.I don't know how it got damaged.I probably may have hit the table or something. My question is according to ITTF rules if pimples are missing it's not allowed to play from that rubber.Here's a image of my rubber with pimples missing places being marked.

I want to know if my rubber would be allowed to play in a international tournament with this stage of the rubber.I want to know this because I don't like having to change the rubber.Even with the same rubber if I have to use a new one I would take some time to get used to it.

Hi Praveen,

You wouldn’t be allowed to use that in an International tournament because of the broken pimples.
