    Balls for Next Season

    Monday, 4th August 2014

    The Association is advised by Tees Sport, in its latest Newsletter, that two types of plastic balls were being manufactured one type with a seam and the other without. From tests carried out there was a clear difference in the way that they both play. Currently there were no plastic balls available for purchase from Butterfly or TSB. The British League and County Championships will be played with the celluloid ball for the time being. Other events are less certain as Table Tennis England is hoping to use a plastic ball in some of the Grand Prix and National Championships, and other events. It was therefore possible that players may be asked to use the celluloid ball one week and the plastic ball the next. After considerable discussion, the BDTTA Committee is agreed that for the 2014/15 BDTTA League Season, only the celluloid ball can be used in its League competition.
