Hello from western North Carolina. I have been a club and occasional tournament player since 1969. For most of my tournament years, I played inverted on the forehand and short pips on the backhand (rated 1850-1950). After a layoff of a few years, I started playing hardbat seriously, and I have been full-time hardbat for the last 10+ years. Unfortunately, almost all my hardbat play has been against sponge competition because there are so few hardbat players around. I am thinking seriously of taking up sponge again for my third table tennis career. You will probably find me in the short pips forum.

Hi all
I play in London north mid tt league. Premier Division.
My dad was a cunning hardbat player who amazingly
Could out chop even sponge bat players.
Myself, I've taken to be an active defender, anti/Lp player.
I'm veteran now, came runner up in our leagues over 50s comp, beating a ranked player along the way. I'm 51 now.
Played since 14. Like my dad enjoy the occasional classic hardbat game as a chopper mainly.

Hi all,

My name is Gary. I play modern defence , using either anti or LP backside. And currently using hurricane 2 on pips set up and chop and drive on the anti set up. My anti set up blade is a lovely old classic, a stiga stellan bengtsson defence. The pips set up blade is hallmark combi. Love the old classic hardhat era. Dad use to play this style and, never changed often beating rev rubber players by pure chop and flick, using an old barna style blade which I still have. Played frictionless for the period before they banned them, hallmark super special in fact. What a topspin killer that was..

My name is Chris. I played in a college dorm many years ago, never got very good. I started again about a year and one month ago at a small club here in Austin Texas US. Since then Ive been playing 10-12 hours a week and taking some lessons. I also play in league at a bigger club once a week. I’ve also seen just about every free TT video tutorial on the web. I also practice with a robot that a buddy of mine put in a storage locker. I’ve played in a handful of tournaments here in central TX.

I play double inverted, double-winged attacking style close to mid distance. Andro Treiber Z with Xiom Omega 7 Euro on both sides. Ive tried a few other blades and rubbers, this is the one that chose me!

I work in accounting & tax prep. Found this forum because a lot of questions I google about equipment and techniques comes back to this forum. Some really helpful, knowledgeable and experienced people. So, I decided to join up and occasionally throw in my $.02 where I can.

Hi I am Paul.
I played lots from age 7-15 ( leagues, tournaments) in the UK.
I have not played for 35 years, so for anyone good at maths that makes me 50, for everyone else I'm 40 :)
I am going to go along to a local club where I now live in France and start hitting some balls again.

Michael in New Hampshire (US).

Playing again after a 20-year break. I have been running, playing tennis, weightlifting and am recovering from a battle with cancer the past three years. I'm using equipment from the 1990s, an old Butterfly wood blade that's very heavy and Yasaka Do on both sides. I prefer a looping forehand and backhand style and use a shake-hands grip though I can play penholder too.

I'm curious about changes in technique and equipment over the past twenty years.
