Hi, I'm Elie from Gilbert Table Tennis Center, and today I'm going to tell you about ping-pong paddle rules. In ping-pong or table tennis, we have different rackets. We have so many different rackets. Professional rackets, they're of course different from just the amateur rackets. So, some rackets you can use in playing in a basement or just in a garage. So, a professional racket includes the blade and two rubber sheets. So, they come like this. The already assembled rackets, they look something like this. The major thing is they come with a different side of the rubber sheet. One is black and the other one is red. So, that is mandatory for the racket, which will be played in a professional tournament. So, the other thing that is an important thing, the thickness. The thickness of the blade and the two rubber sheets, it should not be thicker, that certain amount of the inches. Then also an important thing is each racket, which is used in professional table tennis, should have the sign of ITTF approved, ITTF approved sign over here. So, you can see it on the black side right here, and also on the red one right here. So, as I mentioned before, if I show you this racket, see this racket is just used for outdoor. It's just for amateur playing, and this racket is good because it can sustain any weather or any rain and sun, but of course this racket doesn't have as much tackiness, or it cannot be played with, in a professional tablet tennis tournament. Also, if I show you this racket, it looks like this one only has one side coverage, which is sponge only on one side. The other one doesn't have it and that is done because this racket is used for the pen holder grippers. Some people, they grip the racket in a different way, and they only use one side like this. Even this racket has one side only. It can, of course, be used in a professional tournament, but even this one has to have the approved sign of ITTF, International Table Tennis Federation. And I'm Elie from Gilbert Table Tennis Center, and I've just discussed ping-pong paddle rules. Good luck playing.
