Good day Coach,

Can an ITTF approved rubber which is totally wearied away without any damage be allowed for international competition. 

Thank you

Hi Abubakar,

As long as the properties of the rubber are not altered greatly I think it would be fine.  

The regulations state that:

2.4.7  The racket covering shall be used without any physical, chemical or other treatment.

2.4.7.1 Slight deviations from continuity of surface or uniformity of colour due to accidental damage or wear may be allowed provided that they do not significantly change the characteristics of the surface.
