How do I play table tennis with a bat with no grip?

Hi Max,

The strokes and techniques that we teach here at PingSkills mostly require a good bat with decent grip. We recommend the PingSkills Rook and PingSkills Touch.

Table Tennis is all about spin. If you can't generate spin it makes it difficult to compete. Some defensive players use long pimples on their backhand and this can work well for defensive strokes like the Backhand Chop.

You certainly can't play aggressive strokes like the Forehand Topspin Against Block unless you have a grippy rubber on your bat.

I can't afford a new bat so it's pretty hard to play I just wanted to know if there is a special way to play

Hi Max,

Just try to get any bat that has a bit of grip to start with.  as long as it has some grip on the surface.

That is heaps. Just choose are resonable pre made paddle- donic which definitely has enough grip. 700 around 40 and 800 around 50

If you want a better blade then custom it with chinese blades and rubbers- hurricane $15 used by most pro guys

Of course not the same around $50 or less
