Maximise Your Play: Usage Tips & Maintenance for Your Ping Pong Paddle

It's time to amp up your game and make the most out of your professional ping-pong paddle. We're here to guide you every step of the way.

Routine Cleaning and Rubber Maintenance

Proper Cleaning

Keep your paddle in top condition with regular cleaning. Gently wipe the rubber using a soft, microfiber towel or sponge. This ensures no fibres or lint are left behind. After wiping, air dry the paddle by waving it in the air – this helps maintain the rubber's tackiness.

Rubber Maintenance

For optimal performance and stickiness, use a specialised table tennis rubber cleaner. The frequency of rubber replacement depends on how often you play. We'll share more on this topic in future emails, so stay tuned!

Safe Storage and Careful Use

Protected Storage

Your paddle's hard shell case offers excellent protection. Store it in a cool, dry place to prevent damage from heat or moisture.

Careful Use

Handle your paddle with respect. Avoid dropping or roughly treating it to maintain the integrity of the rubber and blade.


Blade Inspection

Regularly inspect your blade for wear or damage. Promptly addressing any issues is key to keeping your game sharp.

Post-Game Care

After each game, quickly wipe off any accumulated dirt or sweat from the rubber with a slightly damp microfibre towel. This immediate care is crucial for preserving the rubber's tackiness and hygiene. Remember to let the paddle air dry post-cleanup.
