My wife went back to her mum's for 10 days and I took advantage of this time by playing ridiculous amounts of table tennis. Hours and hours of unadulterated pounding table tennis has really improved my game noticeably, but towards the end of it I ended up with a raw red, peeling, calloused hand. A few days rest and it gets better but as soon as I play again the sensitivity and soreness returns.
This presented a problem with the TTACT tournament fast approaching (it was held last weekend). In desperation, I ended up wearing a golf glove on my right hand and this worked fantastically. My hand was still sore, but it was bearable and it didn't get worse over the two days...and I ended up with a couple of new trophies to add to my trophy cabinet (winner division 3 singles, runner up division 3 doubles).
The point of this long-winded intro is...are there any rules/regulations against wearing a glove in table tennis?
I don't think there is any rule about using a glove. In fact one of the girls I coach uses one when competing. She plays in Class 6 singles in Athletes with a Disability events.
