The bsic equipment required in the game of table tennis is the tennis racket. Known by various names as paddles in US or bats in UK, the official term that is used is table tennis racket. The term
"racket" and "paddle" are synonymous.
The table tennis racket is made from laminated wood. There is the flat and rigid wooden blade which incorporates the handle. The blade is covered with rubber on one or both sides.
One can purchase pre-assembled "rackets" that have the rubber sheet already on the blade.

Types of Racquets/ Rackets or Paddles
Table Tennis Blade
- Recreational Paddles
Recreational paddles are made of wood and rubber combination that are significantly lower in speed and spin producing capability than the powerful "hi performance" custom paddle category of products. Recreational level rackets are bought with rubber sheets and wood (blades) of good to moderate performance.
- Hi-Performance Custom Paddles
This category of rackets is made of highly specialized, hi-performance rubber and woods. These table tennis paddles or rackets produce much more speed and spin than recreational rackets. Hi-performance custom rackets are bought by selecting particular specialized wood (or wood/graphite) along with hi-performance rubber.
There are two styles of blades
Table Tennis Racket Handle
- Western Style Blade: This style is for the western grip of the handle. This grip is same as shaking hands with another person and is also known as the shakehands grip. The racket handle is held in the palm of the hand so that the start of the racket head fits properly into the "V" shape formed by your thumb and first finger.
- Penhold Style Blade: In this style, the racket handle is held between the thumb and forefinger and is known as the penhold grip. This style is good for beginners.
The shape of the racket handle depends on the players' choice. The most preferred one is the the flared handle. The anatomic handle takes the second position followed by the straight handle.
