Training Balls Plastic

After plastic balls are manufactured, they are strictly checked in terms of various parameters and properties: Weight, diameter, roundness, surface roughness, jump and flight behavior, and so forth. In case that all these parameters exhibit perfect properties, the table tennis balls are marked with a symbol containing 3 stars. They are then licensed and permitted as official table tennis plastic balls for competitions and tournaments. In case that some of the above mentioned parameters are not completely uniform, and in case that there a small flaws, they are used as plastic training balls. Fortunately, these are now available (as they make sense!), and may have one or two stars as an imprint, but they may also completely lack stars. Plastic TT training balls are cheaper than plastic balls for competitions, but they only slightly differ in terms of quality. Particularly in lower leagues, the differences are usually not noticeable. For this reason, plastic training balls are worth a recommendation for beginners who are doing non-specific- table-tennis training, training to acquire various techniques, or training to apply consolidated techniques. Table tennis plastic balls are also worth a recommendation for advanced players. For these reasons, we can summarize that buying training balls is worth is, and this should be taken into consideration. As already mentioned, this is also because regarding official competitions and tournaments, celluloid balls are not permitted anymore.
