A word about paddles 

Even on the bar pong circuit, you'll find players who are very serious about their paddles. In fact, it's probably no coincidence that the players who win the most local tournaments have the best paddles. In fact, some of the top players at the Albert build their own paddles using wood, rubber, glue, etc., that they purchase online.

If you're tired of using the bar's crappy paddle, first of all, congratulations. This is a big step in your ping-pong journey, young Padawan. But there are a lot of choices. Wooden blades? Illegal sandpaper? Flat, pips-out rubber? Padded, pips-in rubber? What's your game style, yo?
