I am very new to table tennis. I visited a website that sells equipments.

It is clearly written that sponge thickness is 2.0, but why are there 1.5... rubbers?

Aren't sponges part of rubbers?

Hi Sharlynne,

THere are different options for the thicknesses of the sponge.  The thicker the sponge the faster and more spin you will get with it.  Manufacturers juts offer them in different thicknesses for players that want to get different effects with the rubber.

It just adds to the confusion.
