Personal Equipment

Many club league and tournament players take special care in choosing their equipment, since the characteristics of the table tennis racket, ball, shoes and clothing affect the quality of play, as well as the comfort and  safety of the player. 

The links below lead to lists of table tennis equipment with online sources recommended by experienced players at the GVTTC. The Club has a sponsorship agreement with Joola, a world renowned equipment manufacturer. Joola offers GVTTC members special prices on equipment, often substantially less that those available online through their website or through other online retailers.
