Hello Alois and Jeff. 

Im 13 years old. I have played in my club for like 3 months (I started in the club late but I could still join them). I started in the C group instead for ping pong school cause I didn't have to. Now in summer I did get a letter that I will move up a better group to B one, which gives me better training and playing against maybe harder players.

Ping pong school - These who wants to learn obviously if you know what I mean.

This group exists, but probably in other countries:

C group

B group

A troop 

To my question. Should I start with rubber like Tenergy/XIOM/ other rubbers? Im offensive but can play defensive sometimes like chopping and etc. I get most of my points by my serves.

Hi Linux,

I would start with a slower rubber like Mark V.  This will allow you to control the ball and also as you improve you will be able to generate enough spin to learn your strokes well.
