sharp knife or blade to cut the table tennis rubber is important.


Sharp Knife: Ideally you will use a scalpel or box cutter with brand new blade. It needs to be super sharp. Do not you use house-hold knife.

Choosing the correct knife for the job will make it a lot easier to cut the rubber. Table tennis rubbers are quite tough, so you will certainly need a sharp knife!



We suggest also watching the Video at the top of the page to help you understand the process.

  1. Apply Glue to the Blade:
    Evenly apply a thin layer of glue to one side of the rubber and to Side A of the blade. Use a small foam piece to spread the glue for an even coat.

  2. Let Glue Partially Dry:
    Allow the glue on both the rubber and the blade to become tacky. This usually takes a few minutes depending on the glue's instructions. You can use a hairdryer to help speed up the process - but it is not necessary.

  3.  Attach the Rubber to Blade:
    Carefully align the rubber with the blade and press them together. Start from one edge and slowly press across to avoid air bubbles.

  4. Trim the Excess Rubber from the Table Tennis Bat:
    Once the rubber is attached, use a sharp pair of scissors or a craft knife to trim the excess rubber around the edge of the blade.

  5. Repeat for the Other Side:
    Repeat steps 1 to 4 for the other side of the blade (Side B), ensuring an even application of glue, allowing it to partially dry, attaching the rubber, and trimming the excess.

  6. Apply Side Tape:
    To protect the edge of your bat and secure the rubbers, apply side tape to the blade. This step is crucial for durability and maintaining the quality of your bat.

  7. Place in the Press:
    To ensure the rubbers adhere properly and evenly, place the bat in a bat press or use heavy books to apply even pressure. Leave it pressed for the recommended time, usually overnight, to ensure a firm bond. Hint: Be patient, the drying is important, so best to leave it for 12 hours and make sure it is 100% cured.
