How to choose table tennis balls
• Due to the change in regulations, new ping pong palls will be made from plastic materials, while older ones are still celluloid-based. You’ll need to check the rules for your regional table tennis body to find out what’s accepted in local tournaments.
• All table tennis balls are rated using a system ranging from one to three stars. The highest quality balls have three-star ratings, making them the most durable and long-lasting. Training balls and one or two-star balls are still popular options, particularly for amateur games.
• The official colours in table tennis are white and orange, but for games at home you can choose from a wide range of different colour choices.
