So one of the things I've noticed about my table tennis sessions is that I am sweaty. I get drenched.

I know there are sweat breaks for a towel off, but I don't really think i've noticed a general trend of professionals being decked out in 80's Andre Agassi style sweatbands:

Is this something I will more likely see at a club. I feel like having at least 3 different on-body sweat receptacles will really help keep me above water, but I also don't want to get bullied on top of losing to the 12 year olds at the club this fall.

Sweat bands..yay or nay?

Hi Jim,

They are not that common but maybe they should be...

You are going to have to be tough and suck up the criticism if you think they will help.  They are used at club level a bit.  I think you are going to have to take the plunge and get yourself a full set. Perhaps introduce them one at a time.  A wrist band on night one, the other wrist band the next night and then the headband on night 3.  If that is not adequate then the bands are going to have to multiply.

I'm going to do this. I'm sure it will be trendy again at some point and I will be looked upon as an innovator.
