Hi there,

I am from Slovakia and I have just recently started to watch your videos (they are very cool btw) and took intrest in pingpong like 5 months ago. I have been playing pingpong with my friend for 2 years but I started to realise that its a lot of fun since i got better (my friend is better than me ofc). We were/are playing with cheap pre-made bats and mostly outside. So it is really hard to generate some sort of spin. They are actually pretty old too. So i bought a new pre-made bat for like 10€ and it started to generate a little bit more spin. However, it got dirty really quick and i decided to use it outside only.

So finally to the point :) ! I am starting to practise indoor too and since i am quite a beginner i would like you to ask for an advice. I want to buy a new indoor bat but:

1. my budget is about 40€. (+/-10€)

2. since the budget is low i would prefer pre-made bat

3. i am really intrested in defensive play with occasional attack (mostly chop strokes, forehand topspin)

I would be really grateful if u could recommend me some specific bat. I watched your video but it was not so specific for me. If it really does not matter which premade bat I choose in these prices just leave a short message.

Thanks a lot,

And keep up the good work

Hi Mizaris,

At that price range there isn't a lot of difference in which one you choose.  Don't get too worried about it at all.

Just choose one that is easily available and then practice as much as you can.

We have the PingSkills Rook which we think is a good place to start.

Hi Mizaris. I am also relatively new to TT, having never played until about 6 months ago. I think I'm heading toward becoming a modern defender as I'm not a naturally aggressive person.  The Ping Skills Rook is a really good racket for a relative newcomer to develop both defensive and all-round skills.  Is has great spin and control and while I can't a lot of speed from it yet, a strong player can generate some reasonable speed too.  I like it so much I have 2 - one for home and the club and the other at work (where I'm lucky enough to play every day).

The Rook is within your budget so I heartily recommend it.

Good luck with your TT.
