Table Tennis Balls for Christmas

Is it time to Restock: Merry Butterfly Christmas

(by Steve Hopkins)

We’ve struggled through closures and lock downs – but now we have sports back on TV (including some ITTF events and USATT’s Thursday Night Live Challenge events) and it looks like most US clubs will be back in action in 2021.  Very soon we are all going to have opportunities to return to competition in the game that we love.  With that in mind, this may be a good time to get ready.

What’s the status of your current equipment?  How old was your blade in February – how worn were your rubber sheets?  I’m not suggesting that you scrap all your old shirts and that favorite pair of shoes, but it might make sense to dust off your bag and take a close look at your equipment to make sure you’re ready for the New Year.

How about updates?  I can’t count the number of times that I held off trying out a new combination because there was a tournament or league that might be affected.  There is no such excuse right now.  Many of us are out of practice and so are most of our friends.  If there was ever a time to turn the page and start off with a blank slate, now is that time.  Have you been meaning to try Dignics?  Did you see the new Harimoto Innerforce blade?  Have you heard of the new CNF technology in the Revoldia?  Is your club ready to move to the R40+ before the next leagues start up – or before the next tournament is planned?

Plan your comeback carefully.  Remember that this is a sport – and some of us are going to need to build up slowly.  While you are working your way back, consider maximizing your advantages.  Check out the seasonal specials at ButterflyOnline.com and have a Merry Butterfly Christmas (and a Happy Butterfly New Year).
