 Hi Im an intermediate table tennis player.Recently I bought a new racquet with great spin speed as well as control. But the bat is a little heavier than the previous one. So could you please give a specific information on the minimum or acceptable weight of a table tennis racquet.

Hi Rahul,

There is no minimum weight.  It is just a matter of picking one up and feeling it in your hand and see whether you feel comfortable playing with it.

Our PingSkills Rook weighs around 185 grams which we think is a good weight for a bat to learn with.  The blade of the PingSkills Touch itself weighs 83 grams then you need to add whichever rubber you want to that.
