Bad Gift Ideas for Table Tennis Players

Table tennis equipment is crucial for him. So it’s not easy to choose the right racket. It’s better that you let him choose his own choice.

Don’t offer table tennis equipment.

Because if you offer him the average gift, he won’t appreciate it much. If you really want to offer him table tennis equipment (like a racket, a rubber, training balls), you should ask him first. That if these gifts will fit his playing style. But you don’t want to do that right? You want it should be a surprise!

As the same reason, here is the list that you should not buy as an X-mas gift:

  • Don’t buy him his favorite rubber. Maybe he is on the plan to change his rubber.
  • Don’t offer him a box of table tennis training ball
  • Never offer him a premade racket (so so bad for a serious table tennis player)
  • Don’t buy him a robot. Buying a table tennis robot is important. Only buy if you know his preference.
  • Don’t buy a table tennis blade. Ask him first! Here is the list of top 10 blades that professional players use.
