What kind of paddle is this?
We use top quality Table Tennis Nation sandpaper paddles designed to make ping pong easier and more fun. The patent pending design features 9 layers of wood and 2 layers of a proprietary carbon blend so you have a bigger sweet spot.

Why is my image on sandpaper?
The sandpaper is a key part of the paddle that helps increase the length of rallies, get rid of unfair spins that other paddles use.

We want to give you a representation of what your paddle will look like when it arrives.

How do the paddles look?
Pretty sweet. They’re designed to look great up close and awesome from across the table.

Can I put my image on both sides of the paddle?
Absolutely. Just check the box at checkout.

What if I want a different design on each side of the paddle?
We’re working on adding this to the site, but in the meantime, order a two sided paddle and then email us ( your order number and attach the image for the other side and we’ll work with you to get your order perfect.

What kind of pictures look best on paddles?
We think all great pictures and designs look awesome on our paddles but we think close-ups and bigger items look best. Some tiny details can fade on the sandpaper so the bigger the image the better. Check out some examples in our gallery.
