Timo Boll: What’s In My Bag 2021

Timo Boll released this video today outlining what he carries with him daily.  We take a close look, and add some emphasis to help you find some of the items that Germany’s top player finds important.

BAG: Butterfly offers a wide range of bags which can fit the needs of any player.  The duffle style that Timo uses in this video is available in the Sendai series and the Yasyo series and the Black Line series and the newest bag series also offer roller versions of these bags such as the Yasyo Trolley (the small version) and the Yasyo Maxi.

RACKET CASE: Timo Boll’s modified case is similar to the Lojal Full Case currently available at  If you’re looking for extra protection, the the Yasyo DX Case has a blade protection inlay and the Poltieh Hard Case has a strong outer cover – either can help keep your paddle safe.  If you are like Timo and travel with multiple paddles, perhaps take a look at the Lojal DX Case with space for multiple paddles.

SHOES: Timo Boll uses Lezoline Shoes with flexible soles, lightweight construction, and grip made especially for this sport with the design components in the middle sole that supports sliding and in the outer sole that grips the floor.

SHIRT: Timo Boll’s bag includes a spare shirt.  Obviously, Butterfly offers a wide range of apparel from tracksuits (Timo appears to be wearing the Kosay Tracksuit in the video) to jackets to shirts (he is wearing a Kosay Shirt) to shorts and even socks (in the video he shows a pair of Groovy Socks).

PERSONAL ITEMS:  Timo reveals that he doesn’t eat full meals in the three or four hours leading up to a game.  He does eat fruit bars and prefers to drink water.  He has an electromassage device called a Physiokey which he uses when he is sore, and exercise bands (which also assist in warm-up and stretching), his camera, and he even shares that he travels with a portable/travel bidet bottle (hey, he plays all over the world).

RACKET AND RACKET CARE: Timo Boll plays with the Timo Boll ALC ST blade, and Dignics 09C .  He also travels with scissors, spare rubber sheets, side tape (he uses the 12mm wider tape for protection of the rubber as well), and adhesive.
