I've hitted my rubber on the edge of the table, now there is a little rip in the edge.

Does this rip effect my game much, i don't feel the different though.

Is this rip very bad for your game?

Hi Duy,

The rip won’t effect the performance of your bat.  The only problem is if you are playing in a big tournament they may not allow you to use the bat if the surface is damaged too much.  

Since it is around the edges it will usually be passed but if it was in the middle the umpire may make you change bats.
