Table tennis is one of the most popular sports in the world. There is hardly any other net game which permits such a variety of playing techniques, like rotation of the ball, very slow and super fast speeds, precise placing of the ball on the opponent’s table side, top-spin und under-spin, various ways of attacking and defending etc.
Since July 2014, the classic celluloid table tennis balls have been replaced by the new plastic balls at ITTF tournaments and then gradually in most high-ranking leagues. Plastic balls are more environmentally friendly to manufacture with comparable playing properties. By default, they are distinguished from conventional celluloid balls by the imprint "40+". By the way, Schildkroet's table tennis ball production goes back a long way. The so-called blow-press method was developed by Schildkroet in Mannheim as early as 1896, and the balls are still made today. No other brand is as connected to the table tennis ball as Schildkroet. Donic enjoys an excellent reputation worldwide in the table tennis competition segment and is the supplier of numerous well-known top players.
