Table tennis

Table tennis(Table tennis) isBall skillsIt is a kind of.Athletes face each other and play a plastic ballracketCompete for points.


Table tennis isJu de PoumeAncient such asTennisBased on the game, in the second half of the 19th centuryUnited KingdomDevised in[1].. Not sure about the inventor, but found that James Devonshire applied for a patent in 1885[1].. 1887 is a well-known game and sports equipment manufacturerJack of LondonReleased this under the name Goshima[1]..The first product did not reach commercial success, but around 1900, the ball was upgraded from cork to celluloid.After that, when it was improved to plastic, it became possible to obtain appropriate elasticity, but the amount of rotation decreased, so Cutman (a battle type that mainly defends) became disadvantageous.When the Jaques of London named it Ping Pong based on the sound of hitting a celluloid ball, it quickly became popular.[1].

In 1902, a professor at Tokyo Higher Normal SchoolGenso TsuboiSpread when he brought a set of equipment from France to Japan and began to spread it.[2].Yamada KosakuAccording to the book, there is a record that Takumi, born in 1886, played table tennis in Okayama when he was 15 years old (1901).[3].. The Japan Table Tennis Association was founded on July 1929, 7.[4].

International Table Tennis Federation (ITTF)1926Was born in. same year,UKThe first world championship was held in.

Match progress


Before the match starts
In a general local game, first practice the rally for XNUMX minutes, then exchange the racket (check the opponent's racket) and flip the coin toss (rock-paper-scissors in Japan).In tournaments where official referees enter, such as large tournaments, greetings, racket exchanges, and coin toss (rock-paper-scissors) are performed, and the winning player can choose either "service" or "court."
Two services are replaced. However, after 2-10, it will be replaced by one.
The server is stationary and throws at least 16 cm vertically from the palm of the hand (freehand) that does not have a racket, hits the falling part from the back of the table with a racket, first bounces on its own court, and then You have to go over the net and bounce to the opponent's court.If the service hits the net and falls on the opponent's court, it becomes a "let" and the service is redone.In other cases, it will be a service mistake and the opponent will score.
Also, when serving, the ball must not be hidden from the opponent by the player's body or uniform.If the referee has a low toss (less than 16 cm toss) or doubts that the service is illegal when servicing, he will be warned and will try the service again, but again with the same suspicion. The service becomes a fault and the opponent scores.Obviously violating services are faulted (without caution).
The service of the opponent who made one bounce on the opponent's court and one bounce on his own court is made to make one bounce or more on the opponent's court and returned.
The returned ball must be returned so that it falls on the opponent's court either directly or after contact with the net. If this is not possible, the opponent will score.
Bounce the ball two times on your court, hit the ball against your body, hit the racket twice intentionally, or hit the ball directly on the racket or body before the ball returned by the opponent bounces on your table. must not. If any of these apply, the opponent will score. However, double-hit in a series of unintentional ball hitting is effective. Even if the ball hits the wrist (finger, etc.) of the hand holding the racket, or if it enters the opponent's court without hitting the rubber, it is effective as a return ball and does not become the opponent's score.
Volleying on the bench is prohibited. If you volley, you will score the opponent. If the freehand touches the table during play, it will be a goal.
Change coat
When one game is over, change the court and enter the next game.In the next game, the service will start with the player who received first in the previous game.
How to count
The referee who scores the scoreboard utters the score on the server side and the score on the receiver side in English each time the score is entered.In China, the score on the server side, the score on the receiver side, and the score on the receiver side are spoken in Chinese in that order.
If the ball is broken during the rally, the score for that rally is invalid, and if the ball is picked up after the rally and the ball is cracked, the score for that rally is valid. After the ball was exchanged by the referee and a practice hit (rally) was made, the service was restarted and the game restarted.
If the ball flies from another court and interferes with the rally, the points scored by the rally will be invalidated and the game will be restarted by restarting the service.
The game can be timed out only once per game, but the game can be interrupted. However, the time limit is 1 seconds or less.
If the total score of both players is less than 1, it will not end even if 10 minutes have passed from the start in one gamePromotion rulesIs applied. Or, if both parties agree, the promotion rules will be applied from the beginning.
A yellow card will be shown as a warning for bat etiquette (throwing racket on table, profanity in dirty words, kicking fence, kicking table with racket, etc.). A yellow or red card is presented for the second similar action, and the opponent is awarded 2 point. The other person is given 1 points for the same action for the third time. The fourth time is reported to the referee (chief referee), and the referee chief takes action.


Basically the same rules as for singles, but with some additional requirements.

  • Services must bounce across the right side of the server side court to the right side of the receiver side court. If you make a mistake in the bounding surface, it will be the opponent's point.
  • In the after-service rally, the pairs must be struck alternately. If the same player hits twice in a row, it becomes the opponent's point.
  • When the service right is transferred to the opponent, the player who was not in service becomes the receiver, and the player who was the receiver until then becomes the next server.
  • When one game is over and the next game is started, the service is started from the pair that first received in the previous game. In that case, either player of the pair may be the first server. The receiver should be a different combination than the previous game.
  • If either player gets XNUMX points in the full game, a change end (changes the court) is made.However, the server does not change, but the receiver changes.

World table tennis championship,All Japan Table Tennis ChampionshipFor example, in addition to the usual doubles performed by a pair of two boys or two girls, mixed doubles performed by a pair of one boy and one girl.

Team battle system

Various methods are used for team battles.World table tennis championshipFor example, both teams have a maximum of five single-player matches with three players, and the system that wins the first three wins is adopted.Beijing OlympicsIn the team competition, three players played 3 singles and 4 doubles.

In Japan, there are many 4 single, 6 doubles systems by 4 players (1 players in junior high school students) including the Japan Table Tennis League. In this case, the same athlete may appear in both singles and doubles. Depending on the competition, there are also methods such as 6 singles 1 doubles (Kanto Student Federation) and 3 singles 2 doubles (New Japan Sports Federation). Furthermore, when it comes to local tournaments, there are 2 singles, 1 doubles, group competitions with only doubles, and mixed team competitions.

Transition of rules

the 1900sBy the timeEuroperubberMade ofrubber(Rubber equivalent to the present) was developed and became mainstream[6], Because I could not hit such a strong ball and the height of the net was high[7], The 1936th time in 10, when it was advantageous to stay protectedWorld table tennis championshipThen there is a record of the game that took more than 1 hours to get one point[7].1937, Japan's first international match, played against a former Hungarian world champion, at which time Japanese players touched the rubber for the first time[6].. At that time, the Japanese player's racket had nothing on it (also known as Ki Bella), but achieved good results.[6].. Around that time, boysAmericaThe team developed the "finger spin service," a service that uses fingers to generate various rotations, and brought in a play with strong rotation for the first time at the 1937th World Table Tennis Championships held in 11.[7].. The U.S. team that made full use of this achieved good results, but on the other hand, opponents who were not accustomed to the strong rotation had a series of receive misses and the rally did not continue.[7].. The rally was too long, but on the other hand it was too short, and the two extreme developments made the crowd feel boring.International Table Tennis FederationHas revised the rules to lower the height of the net, limit the game time, and ban the service that gives the ball various rotations using fingers (finger spin service)[7].. Under that influence, the defensive type became advantageous again, and from the 1940s to the early 1950sEuropeThe main type of cut by the players was[6][7][8].

The turning point in which this situation changed was after World War II.the 1950sJapan has developed new tools one after another and used them in actual battles to produce results.[6][7][8].. First of all, "back rubber", which is a conventional rubber that is turned over and pasted, has come to be used. This is because the contact area with the ball is wider than the conventional rubber (current rubber is considered to be front rubber against back rubber)frictionIs large, and it is easy to make a strong rotation, and it is possible to make an attack that makes full use of it. further,Pacific WarSometimesaircraftFuel tankBulletproofThe closed-cell sponge, which was used for military purposes, will now be used as table tennis equipment. This has a strong repulsive force, and the striking power has improved dramatically compared to conventional rubber[6][7][8].. "Sponge rubber" that is pasted on the ball striking surface[8], "Back soft rubber" with back rubber and sponge attached, and "Front soft rubber" with single rubber (front rubber) and sponge developed. In addition, "tsubu high rubber", which is an extension of the table software, was also developed. Armed with a smash attack that makes full use of those characteristics,1952Japan participated in the 19th World Table Tennis Championships for the first time, while winning the championship in the 4th category of women's group, men's singles, men's doubles, women's doubles and breaking the golden age, Japanese players in the 1950s world championship Produced many winners at[6][7][8].

However1959The International Table Tennis Federation has embarked on equipment restrictions.The use of sponge alone was banned and the sponge rubber disappeared.The thickness of other rubbers was also limited to 4 mm.

2000Therefore, the diameter of the ball changed from 38 mm to 40 mm.by thisballThe air resistance of the car has increased, and the rally continues more than before. However, on the other hand, it became difficult to rotate, and the rubber became less susceptible to rotation, so battle types such as cut type and front attack type were struggling.[Source required].

2001Has been changed from the conventional 21-point system to the 11-point system, and the service has also been changed from five-by-two to two-by-two.

2002The act of hiding the ball at the time of service (handhide service, bodyhide service) was completely prohibited.

2007Since September, the use of organic solvent adhesives has been banned at major competitions in Japan.2008From September, the use of organic solvent-based adhesives was totally banned, and one month later, post-processing with auxiliary agents was banned.Also, the use of anti-processed grain height rubber was prohibited.

2014The diameter of the ball remains 40 mm, and the plastic ball appeared from the celluloid ball.2015It was also used in major international competitions.



Rackets used for table tennis are mainly made of wood and contain special materials.Rubber is composed of rubber and sponge.There are products with various types and characteristics for both rackets and rubber, and athletes can select the equipment that suits them.

There are various names in the world, Japan and the International Table Tennis Federation are "rackets", in the United Statespaddle, Called a bat in Europe.In addition, the racket philosophy is different between Europe, the United States and Asia, and in Europe it is often used by sticking a soft rubber on a hard racket, so it is necessary to require the blade to have momentum and shot feeling, and to require the rubber to be easy to rotate and control. many.On the contrary, in Asia, it is often used by sticking a hard rubber on a racket with a slightly hard or medium hardness, so we wanted a blade that is easy to rotate and has a large change after bouncing, and the rubber has momentum and acceleration. Often seeks power.

Rackets that can be used for official games include rackets with rubber that are sold at low prices for leisure (some packages include balls and a second racket), and commercial rackets used at the competition level (rubber is (Not included), there is a custom racket that you can customize to your liking.Leisure rackets that cannot be used in official games are also on sale.In addition, it is necessary to pay close attention to the storage of rackets, and racket cases are sold by each manufacturer.

The racket used for official games in Japan must have the manufacturer's name and the official recognition of the Japan Table Tennis Association (JTTAA) in a visible place (For the use of the racket without the JTTAA mark, the organizer side Notification of use permission is required).

According to the regulations of the International Table Tennis Federation, 85% (%) or more of the material other than the grip is made of natural wood, which is flat and hard. The size is not fixed, but the larger the size, the larger the area that can catch the ball. Advantages, but more disadvantages due to weight and air resistance[9].


The difference between table tennis and other racket ball games is how to hold itShake hand-Pen holderBroadly speaking, there are two types.

TraditionallyEuropePlayers from the region mainly used the shakehand, while penholders were the mainstream in Asia,the 1990sOr laterAsiaIn each country, the proportion of athletes using shakehand is increasing, and it is becoming a situation that exceeds the pen holder.

Even so, pen holders with rubber on only one side are lighter in total weight than shake hands, so there were many cases where female athletes and athletes with confidence in footwork chose them, but now it is possible to attack and defend with both forehand and backhand. is required, so many players are now choosing shakehand.

However, there are some players who are good at two-handed attacks using Chinese-style pen holders and are ranked high in the world rankings, so it is not possible to conclude who is technically superior.

Shake hand
A type of racket that you can hold like a handshake. Use by sticking rubber on both sides.
Grips come in various shapes such as straight (ST), flared (FL), and anatomic (AN), and the former two grips are especially popular.
Pen holder
ペ ンA type of racket (common name) that you hold to hold.Pen holders can be roughly divided into Japanese style pen holders and Chinese style pen holders.
Normally, rubber is attached only on one side and the ball is hit only with that side, but there are cases where rubber is attached on both sides for the purpose of widening the width of the ball, which can be reversed during a match or rally, or used as a backhand. to complement the technologyBack strikeThe number of athletes who play is increasing.
As for the color of the rubber, it is necessary to stick different colors of rubber on the front and back sides, as with the shake hand. Also, if you stick the rubber on only one side, you must put or paint a sheet of a different color from the surface. Many Japanese-style pens are already painted when you purchase them.
Japanese style pen holder
It is divided into square type, rounded corner type, round type, etc. according to the shape of the blade, mainly in the grip part.corkis used.There are many players in Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, etc., and they often stick rubber on only one side.
Reversible pen holder
Of the Japanese-style pen holders, it often refers to a racket that is designed to be easy to hold even when inverted and has rubber on both sides.
Chinese pen holder
It has a shape like a shortened Shakehand handle, and many blades have almost the same shape and thickness as Shakehand.
Hand saw
A type of racket that holds like a pistol[10].. It is sometimes called "pistol type" or "pistol type" because of how it is gripped. It is said that a bendable drive is easy to hit, but very few players use it. Due to the characteristics of the grip, it is difficult to change the service. Fewer players have different fore or back sides.


Only the plate portion of the racket is called a blade.

In general, table tennis rackets tend to emphasize rubber and ignore blades, but in reality, the opposite is true, and blades are more important than rubber.This is because the ball touch and ball control that do not go astray at the competition level of top players are required, so the hygroscopicity and characteristics of the blade have a considerable effect on the shot feeling and elasticity.

The characteristics of the blade are that the repulsive force expresses the speed when hitting the ball, and the rigidity expresses the feeling when hitting.Generally, high rigidity = hard racket has high repulsive force, quick release of bullets, and enables speedy hitting.[11]..On the contrary, a racket with low rigidity = soft racket is easy to control because it easily absorbs the impact of the hit ball and suppresses the repulsive force.Further, if the blade thickness is thick, the rigidity of the plate becomes high and it becomes easy to bounce, but the ball separation tends to be quick, and if the blade is thin, the plate becomes flexible and it becomes difficult to bounce, but it becomes easy to rotate.The hitting sound depends more on the material and weight used than on the performance of the racket.

Notation varies, but each manufacturer describes the racket characteristics in order. Overseas, it is mainly written as OFF, ALL, and DEF, and each item is often marked as +, and those that do not are marked as-. In Japan, according to the notation used overseas, it is indicated as first, mid-first, mid, mid-slow, or slow. The hardest is OFF+ or fast, the softest is DEF or slow.

Veneer and plywood

The racket is mainly made of wood, and when it is made of one plate, it can be divided into a single plate and a plywood made by bonding a plurality of plates. Veneer rackets are mainly made from a single cypress, whereas plywood rackets are made by combining plates with different characteristics.

The use of the blade wood depends on the material, but the characteristics of the racket also depend on the wood used, the manufacturing process, and the storage method. Regarding the wood used, in veneerJapanese cypress,KatsuraIs mainly used.There are various types of plywood such as Japanese and Western materials, but the core isPaulownia-BalsaMaterialwillow・ Lightweight wood such as rosewood, abashi, ayouth, and samba is used, pine, anegre, spruce, and dyeing materials are used for the core, and limba, koto, walnut, cypress, and ayouth are used for the upper plate. -Dyeing materials are mainly used, but in recent years hardwoods such as ebony, rosewood, wenge wood, bloodwood, and white ash have been used for the upper plate.

The paulownia and balsa wood used for the core of plywood are lightweight materials, so they had the fatal drawback of being lighter in the celluloid ball era. In particular, paulownia wood has been used for chests of drawers, etc., so it absorbs moisture, so it has a characteristic that the feel at impact and elasticity are likely to change. However, the situation has changed with the advent of plastic balls. The change in the material of the ball changed the feel at impact. Since paulownia has high elasticity as well as the sensation of gripping a ball peculiar to the material and high elasticity, even if the plate thickness is a little thick, a plastic ball can exert a ball power, so there is almost a drawback except the problem of moisture. It has been eliminated, and the lightness of the ball power of the balsa material is almost eliminated by the material of the ball, and in the plastic ball era it is used as an option to leave the amount of rotation.

As its name suggests, the veneer is made from a single cypress or katsura board, giving it a distinctive shot-like feel. It has the drawback that it is more fragile than plywood, which can be made more durable by combining wood grain vertically and horizontally. Therefore, it is necessary to increase the durability by arranging the wood grain in the vertical direction to increase the plate thickness, and it will not be made much because it will be heavy with a shake hand with rubber attached on both sides. In addition, since the characteristics are affected by the quality of the plate material, there is a large variation in quality even for the same type of racket, but a single-plate racket using a high-quality cypress has a unique shot feeling, as well as resilience and rigidity. Because of its good balance, it is particularly popular with the main drive type players with square pen holders. Therefore, some players who want high-quality cypress veneer can buy a custom-made veneer racket.
Balancing repulsion and rigidity is achieved by combining wood materials of different characteristics vertically and horizontally. As a result, a racket with a variety of characteristics is created compared to a single-plate racket, and the quality variation is small. It is most often used in shake hands and Chinese pen holders, and is basically divided into 3 plywood, 5 plywood, 6 plywood, and 7 plywood. It is also characterized by being able to be used in combination with special materials. There are various types of shot feeling and momentum, depending on the combination of wood and special materials used. Therefore, from 3 plywood, there are rackets called 17 plywood in many cases.
In the case of plywood, for example, five plywood is used, in which the core material is sandwiched between two additive materials and further sandwiched between two upper plates. The core material is wood, which is the origin of the racket, and because of the high proportion of the racket, lightweight materials are mainly used. The degree of momentum varies depending on the wood used and the thickness. On the other hand, the additive and the upper plate are used to balance the repulsive force and the rigidity. For the upper plate, too soft wood is not used to prevent the wood from cracking and peeling when the rubber is replaced.
3 plywood
It is composed of a core material and two upper plates. Since the number of plywood is small and it is inferior in strength, rackets with high momentum have been introduced by ensuring the thickness of the core material and inserting special materials. However, because the number of plywood is small, it is difficult to make the blade thin and the grain of the core material is sideways, so the softness of the shot feeling and the sidewaysness of the core material are used, Or a racket for the cut main battle type has appeared.
5 plywood
It is composed of a core material, two additive materials, and two upper plates. Since the grain of the middle core material is vertical, the balance of repulsive force and rigidity is good and the blade can be made thinner. Since each product has different characteristics and there are many products, it is widely used by beginners to advanced players regardless of the battle type. In addition, even if a special material is put in, the core material becomes a vertical grain, so it is the most mainstream of plywood blades regardless of whether it is solid wood or containing special material.
7 plywood
It is composed of a core material, four additional materials, and two upper plates. The characteristics differ depending on the individual product, but since the blade tends to be thicker, the ball rebounds quickly because of its high repulsion and rigidity, but since the grain of the core material is sideways, it has more momentum in the middle and apse compared to 4 plywood. Since it has a fatal drawback that it will not rise, it is a specification dedicated to the front team. Therefore, it has been traditionally considered as a racket for advanced players or people who do not like special material rackets, but with the advent of plastic balls, the tendency for exclusive players to become stronger is stronger than it was in the celluloid ball era.

Special material

It is permitted to use materials other than wood for the racket within 15% of the material,Carbon fiber(Carbon fiber) ・ Acrylate (Vectran fiber)・Kevlar-Glass fiber(Glass fiber) ・Titanium-ZylonRackets using special materials such as are also used.In addition to the above materials, allylate carbon, which is a combination of carbon fiber and allylate, Zylon and carbon, which is called ZLC, Kevlar carbon, which uses Kevlar and carbon, and texarium, silver carbon, basalt fiber, and textile. There are a wide variety of special materials such as streams.

By arranging the special material, not only the momentum is higher than that of the solid wood racket, but also the sweet spot of the racket is widened to achieve a uniform momentum. However, the use of a special material has a shot feeling different from the original shot feeling of wood, and has a drawback that it is difficult to make the momentum of the momentum. The arrangement pattern includes an outer arranged between the upper plate and the core, and an inner arranged between the middle core and the core. The outer has a high bounce and a high ball separation, and the inner has a shot feeling closer to wood.

Wood heat treatment

In modern table tennis, where both hand styles have been established, a lighter racket is required as the weight of rubber becomes heavier, and after non-glue, not only rubber but also racket repulsion has been required. Moreover, since it is made of wood, the racket is weak against moisture. In addition, the manufacturer was looking for paulownia wood that was not suitable for table tennis rackets, both for effective use and cost reduction. In order to solve such problems, a manufacturing method for easily drying wood has been established.

This is to remove the moisture contained in the wood by heat treatment at a temperature lower than the boiling point of the wood, thereby reducing the weight and reducing the hygroscopicity. The racket manufactured by this method, in addition to the uniform bounce, is able to obtain higher rigidity and repulsive force than before even without using a special material even though it is made of five plywood. This is a new type of racket that appeared around 5.

However, this method has the drawbacks that it loses the feeling of grasping the original sphere of wood because it is physically processed, and that it loses its ball power with light materials such as paulownia wood. It is possible to supplement the power of the ball.


The rubber of table tennis is made by sticking a rubber (rubber in English) sheet and sponge with an adhesive (however, one rubber is only a sheet).Hit the ball at the seat.

The provisions of the following explanation are described in accordance with the rules of the International Table Tennis Federation.

The use of rubber of the same color on both sides is prohibited by the rule revision in 1983.The opposite side of the rubberized surface must be rubberized in a different color or colored in a different color.This is because the opponent player cannot be distinguished when the same color rubber having different properties is attached to each surface.

Since the rule amendment in 1983, only red and black have been consistently allowed for rubber and painted surface colors, but since October 2021, the use of blue, pink, violet, and green color rubber has been lifted. ..The use of black and red, and black and color rubber is now permitted.

Regarding the thickness, the thickness of the rubber sheet is up to 2 mm, and the total thickness of the rubber sheet and sponge is up to 4 mm (including the adhesive layer).In addition, regulations are stipulated in detail regarding the shape and aspect ratio of grains.

There are many types of rubber, such as rubber with an adhesive surface. Many of the new rubber products released after 2008 have the official display (ITTFA) of the International Table Tennis Federation, and the manufacturer number and registration number (manufacturer number-registration number) surrounded by a rim.

At official competitions such as international competitions, only the rubbers listed on the official rubber list of the International Table Tennis Federation are allowed to be used (the official rubber list is updated every April and October). At official competitions in Japan, even rubber that does not have the official recognition (JTTAA) of the Japan Table Tennis Association from April 4 can be used as long as it is on the official rubber list of the International Table Tennis Federation. Became. Prior to that, at official tournaments in Japan, the manufacturer name, ITTFA mark, and JTTAA mark were obligatory to be visible.

In addition, as a measure against the rule of prohibiting post-processing of rubber, a Chinese manufacturer has released an "Imitsu bottom" rubber in which a sponge surface of rubber is coated with an auxiliary glue at the manufacturing stage. It is distinguished as "bottom". Regarding "un-bottomed bottom", we do not touch the violation of the officially-registered adhesives described below, and also for "already-bottomed bottom", any rubber listed on the official rubber list of the International Table Tennis Federation can be used at official competitions. Is.

The main raw material is natural rubber or synthetic rubber, and the color of the sheet is determined by changing the ratio of red, green, and blue when mixing the pigment.When only red pigment is used, it becomes red, and when all pigments are used, it becomes black.
Generally, the performance, life, and transparency of the sheet change depending on the ratio of natural rubber and synthetic rubber.The higher the ratio of natural rubber, the larger the amount of rotation, the longer the life, and the lower the transparency of the sheet. Conversely, the higher the ratio of synthetic rubber, the higher the momentum, the shorter the life, and the higher the transparency of the sheet.In addition, black, which uses a large amount of pigment, tends to be soft and stays away from the ball for a long time, so that the amount of rotation tends to increase.On the other hand, red tends to harden, so the ball separates quickly, and the sheet is harder than black, so it is easier to spin.Other colors vary greatly depending on the ratio of pigments.
The shape of the sheet takes into consideration the biting into the sponge, and one side is flat and the other side has grains or columnar protrusions called warts, and the grains are densely arranged in a vertical or horizontal arrangement. ..The characteristics, weight, etc. of the rubber largely depend on the characteristics of the seat.
The harder the weight, the heavier the weight, and the softer the weight, the lighter the weight. However, the thicker the flat part, the heavier the weight tends to be.
It is greatly involved in the biting of the ball and the restoring force after biting.The faster and stronger the restoring force, the higher the elasticity, and the larger the amount of rotation due to the pulling effect of the sheet.Although the weight is lighter than the sheet, there is a large variation even with sponges of the same hardness due to the manufacturing process. There is also a hard one called "with skin".
Regarding the thickness of the sponge, if the sponge is thick, the ball easily bites, the direction is easy to set, the resilience is high, so the elasticity is high, and at the same time the contact time with the ball is long, so the seat is pulled in and strong rotation is applied. Therefore, a powerful hitting ball is possible, but the elasticity at the time of repulsion becomes high and it becomes difficult to control the distance. On the other hand, the thin sponge does not bite the ball, so it is difficult to set the direction, the momentum decreases, and the contact time with the ball shortens, so the effect of pulling the seat weakens and the amount of rotation decreases, but the smash It is easier to apply rotation by rubbing or rubbing, so depending on the characteristics of the sheet, thinning the sponge may give the characteristics of rubber.
The sponge thickness is different for each manufacturer, but 2.2 mm is MAX, 2.3 mm is ULTRA MAX or MAX +, and less than MAX is the sponge thickness. , Thin, ultra-thin, etc. are written.Basically, the back software has a lot of MAX and special thickness, the front software is selected according to the play style, so there are a lot of variations in sponge thickness, the grain height rubber is thin or ultra thin, there are many OX without sponge, etc. There is a bias in sponge thickness depending on the type of rubber.
Rubber hardness
The hardness of the rubber is expressed numerically.The higher the number, the harder it becomes.The rotary tension rubber is said to be several degrees softer than the indicated value due to the mounting of the bubble sponge.
fundamentallyISOHardness (Japanese hardness, Chinese ball hardness, etc.), Chinese needle hardness, manufacturer's original hardness (German hardness, etc.)Tamas(Butterfly) hardness) is mainly used for hardness measurement.
Since the rubber hardness value differs depending on the country of manufacture, it is necessary to convert the hardness when selecting rubber.When choosing a rubber with the same hardness as a rubber with a hardness of 40 degrees in Japan, a butterfly hardness of around -5 degrees, a German hardness of around +5 degrees, and a Chinese needle hardness of around -10 degrees (German hardness ratio- Rubber should be selected based on the hardness value (around 15 degrees).
When choosing a rubber, the standard rubber hardness is 40 degrees for Japanese hardness and 47.5 degrees for German hardness.
In China, either needle hardness or spherical hardness is used, so the rubber hardness notation may cause confusion at the time of purchase, so depending on the manufacturer, it is written in an easy-to-understand manner such as soft, medium, and hard. There is.
Rubber characteristics
The properties of the rubber largely depend on the properties of the sheet, and are comprehensively determined by the combination with the properties of the sponge combined with the sheet. Therefore, a product lineup in which the same sheet is combined with sponges having different characteristics, or a lineup in which the same sponge is combined with different sheets may be prepared. The characteristics of the racket also affect this, so trial and error is required to find a combination that suits you.
A hard sheet/sponge makes it easier to cut the opponent's lower rotation and enables powerful hitting, but it is difficult to control because the ball does not bite easily and it is susceptible to rotation. On the other hand, a soft sheet/sponge is easy to control because the ball bites, and it is easy to offset the influence of rotation by biting, but since the restoring force when the ball bites is slow, energy loss when hitting is severe.
Rubber is not very durable.Even if left unattended, the rubber deteriorates due to drying and oxidation, and the rubber is rubbed to bite into the ball or rotate, so the frictional force and elasticity of the rubber decrease.The guideline for replacement according to life is 1 month for general athletes and 2-3 months for athletes with less practice.[12].. Also, while hitting the ball, dust such as dust adheres to the rubber, and the frictional force decreases. Dedicated to wipe thisRubber cleanerThere is.

Back soft rubber

A rubber that is attached to a sponge with the flat side of the sheet facing outward.Since the contact area with the ball is large, it is easy to rotate the ball and it can be used for all types of hitting, so it is still the most popular type of rubber.

High elasticity/high friction system
Since the sheet is thin and the grains are slightly thin and high design, the grains easily bite into the sponge, and the repulsive force of the sponge causes the ball to fly, and at the same time, the frictional force on the surface of the sheet is used to create a dragging effect and rotate the ball. By hanging, high elasticity and frictional force are realized.It has good trajectory stability and is suitable for hitting a stretchy drive. Since it has a long history of more than 40 years, there are many long-selling rubbers.In the past, rubber with improved momentum by increasing the synthetic rubber ratio of the sheet and 2.6 mm ultra-thick sponge with high elasticity comparable to tension rubber by taking advantage of the characteristics of high elasticity and high friction system were adopted. Unique rubber such as rubber has also been developed.It used to be the rubber with the highest market share, but the number of users is decreasing due to the spread of tension rubber along with non-glue.Rubber, which has appeared in recent years, has achieved higher elasticity and frictional force than conventional rubber by improving production technology.Specialty field of Japanese manufacturers.
Tension system
It creates a state in which a load (tension) is applied to the rubber molecules that make up the sheet and sponge, and compared to the conventional high elasticity and high friction system due to the quick restoring force after the ball bites and the strong pulling effect of the sheet. It achieves high elasticity, frictional force, and high hitting sound.Therefore, the rubber life tends to be shortened.The shape of the sheet is similar to that of high elasticity and high friction rubber, but with some rubbers, the sheet is thick and the grains are low and thick, and the grain thickness is also set to the limit that is permitted by the rules. Tension rubber suitable for table tennis has also appeared.The trajectory is straight and suitable for hitting sharply curved curve drives and shoot drives, but when hitting a ball, the number of balls tends to increase, and if it is a soft rubber, the amount of rotation tends to be insufficient due to the slow restoring force. It also has the aspect that it becomes difficult to control the momentum.Depending on the manufacturer, there are various names such as high tension type and built-in energy type.Although it has a short history since its appearance, there are many users among top players, and since 2008 when the use of glue was banned, "rotary tension rubber" has appeared, and it is now the most mainstream. It is a rubber that is.However, in recent years, the price has risen as the performance and durability of rubber have improved.Specialty fields of German and Japanese manufacturers.
Speed ​​system tension
It has the longest history in the tension system.Since the seat is generally soft, the seat is easily deformed, and the response after the ball bites is very sharp, so it has high momentum even when hitting lightly, but energy is easily lost when hitting hard.The elasticity is high due to the sharp response in general, but if the technique of applying rotation is poor, the ball tends to come out when hitting.However, depending on the striking method, it is possible to apply a strong rotation due to the effect of pulling the seat.Suitable for sticking on the back side of a shake or the back side of a Chinese pen.
Rotation system tension
It is a type of rubber that combines a sheet with a high natural rubber ratio and a tension sponge with large air bubbles. Since the sponge is slightly softer than the rubber hardness, the ball easily bites into it, and the sheet is slightly thicker than the normal tension system and the particles are slightly thick and low, and the sheet surface has frictional force, so it is easy to rotate. Due to the exquisite rubber design of the hardness of the seat and the softness of the sponge, it is easy to add momentum and rotation at light hits, medium hits, and strong hits, but generally the response that the ball bites is excellent while Since the response after biting is very slow, it is very difficult to hit mainly by the wrist, and the softer the sponge is, the slower the response after biting is, so the ball floats easily when hit. It is the most popular rubber since non-glue.
Of the rotating system tensions, the so-called "fogging system" and "matt system" often refer to a hard sheet made of natural rubber with strong tension. It is easier to rotate than it is, but it is heavy because the sheet is hard, and when the sponge is hard, the hardness is comparable to adhesive rubber. Since the sheet is very hard, it is very difficult to handle on the back side of the shake, but it can be said that it is a long-awaited rubber for the main battle type and the Japanese style pen.
Adhesive system
Since the surface of the sheet is sticky, the sheet is thick and the grains are low and thick, and the grain arrangement is not only vertical rubber but also horizontal rubber, so it is heavier than other types of rubber of the same thickness. Is heavy and often has low elasticity. Some sticky ones won't fall off even if you attach a ball. Since the particles are low and the sponge is often hard, and the ball does not easily bite, it is suitable for applying a strong rotation to the ball by rubbing it with the surface of the racket, and it takes longer for the ball to touch the rubber. Therefore, while it is easy to get a habit ball and change the amount of rotation easily, it is easily affected by the rotation of the opponent. In addition, it is extremely delicate compared to other rubbers, and there is a demerit that commercial rubber cleaners cannot be used because the surface of the sheet is sticky. On the other hand, it is possible to strengthen the adhesive force of the sheet by storing the rubber using the adhesive sheet for rubber storage released by each manufacturer. It is mainly used by Chinese players, and even in Japan, the main battle typeCut main battle typeThere are many users such as athletes. Areas of expertise of Chinese manufacturers.
Strong adhesion type, slight adhesion type, ultra slight adhesion type
It may be classified according to the adhesive strength of the sheet surface. The stronger the stickiness, the more the amount of rotation tends to increase, but the hitting speed tends to decrease.
Adhesive tension
It is a type of rubber that combines the performance of adhesive rubber and tension rubber and has higher elasticity than conventional adhesive rubber. In addition, an adhesive rotary tension rubber that uses a tension sponge with large bubbles as described above has also appeared, and the bite of the ball, which was a drawback of the adhesive system, has been improved, and the drive striking method of rubbing is very easy to do. ..
Ultra-thin system
Adhesive rubber that achieves the performance of "grain-height rubber-like" by combining with an ultra-thin sponge by taking advantage of the characteristics of the adhesive sheet and sheet with low particles. In addition to the amount of rotation and habit balls that are the characteristics of adhesive rubber, it is possible to make changes like grain height rubber, but since the momentum is very weak and the influence of rotation is large, it is a specification that is suitable for pen grains only Is.
Control system
A rubber that uses a soft sponge and seat and is designed for easy ball control. It is easy to handle, cheap, and often has a long life, so it is sometimes used when learning techniques, including beginners. On the other hand, since the repulsive force and the frictional force are low, there is a feeling that the power is insufficient at the competition stage and few people are using it.

Table soft rubber

Rubber that is attached to a sponge with the grain side of the sheet facing outward.Due to its structure, it is difficult to bite into the sponge, so a sponge that is softer than the back soft is used.In addition, tension-based front soft rubber that has been sold as having higher elasticity than conventional rubber has appeared, and in recent years, rotating tension-based front soft rubber that uses a sponge with large bubbles like the back soft rubber has appeared. It has appeared.

Because the contact area with the ball is small, the ball is released quickly, and it is less likely to be affected by the rotation of the ball hit by the opponent than the back soft, but it is difficult to apply the rotation and it is difficult to do the small skill of the rotation system.

Depending on the grain shape and characteristics of the sheet, it is classified into rotation type, speed type and change type, and the grain arrangement has a pattern of vertical and horizontal lines.

Basically, it is often used by front-end haste type players and cut main battle type players, but in recent years, the drive main battle type with back soft rubber on both sides of the racket has become popular, and rubber development has been developed. The current situation is that there are overwhelmingly fewer types than the back soft rubber.

In the large ball described later, only rubber of this shape is permitted by the rules.Many of the large balls are softer than those for hard balls, and the balls are less likely to deform.

Rotation system table software
The shape of the grains is trapezoidal and large. It is easy to rotate even in the table software, but it does not release the ball quickly like the speed system, and it is also difficult to produce changing balls such as knuckles. Mainly used by smash-type battle players, who often intertwine with drives.
Speed ​​system software
The shape of the particles is trapezoidal + columnar, and most of the particles are smaller than the rotating system. Among the table software, the ball is the fastest to separate from, and it is easy to get a knuckle type ball, but it is difficult to apply strong rotation like a rotating system. Mainly, the drive is used as a tie, and many players of the type whose main battle is smash are used.
Change system software
The grains are cylindrical.The grain is a little high, and it is designed so that changes such as knuckles are likely to occur.In the past, there were fewer users among the table soft rubbers than the former two,Ai FukuharaHowever, in addition to sticking this type of rubber and leaving a track record, the power of cutting with the grain height rubber described later has decreased due to the transition of plastic balls, so in recent years the number of users has increased, mainly for Cutman. ing.

Grain height rubber

Generic term for grain height rubber with sponge and single grain height rubber (OX) without sponge. It is also called wart height, but it is often called grain height rubber to avoid the word wart feeling. Tension-based high-rubber rubber, which is said to have higher elasticity than conventional rubber, has also been introduced.

The shape of the sheet is higher than the soft rubber and has a thinner horizontal surface. The grain arrangement is overwhelmingly large in the sideways, and the softer the grain, the easier it is to change. The amount of change also depends on the presence or absence of the texture. Even with a sponge, the sponge is very thin and has a weak momentum, resulting in a trajectory different from that of the front soft rubber.

It is more difficult to give rotation than the table software, but it is less affected by the opponent's rotation. Therefore, there is a characteristic that it is possible to use the rotation of the opponent or leave the ball as it is to return the ball. When the ball is struck, the grain repels the ball, so it does not rotate much when hit normally, or the hit ball often remains weakly rotated. However, in reality it depends on the batting method and the quality of the opponent's ball, so there may be rotations and changes that the handling side did not anticipate. It is also possible to return in reverse rotation. Driving is also possible.

In the past, there was an anti-processed "anti-grain height rubber" on the surface of the seat, but since the use was banned after 2008, the performance of the grain height rubber is relatively lower than before. After the transition of plastic balls, the performance deterioration is even more pronounced.Many rubbers released after 2008 have the ITTF registration number written on them, and these grain height rubbers with the ITTF registration number can also be used as proof that they are not anti-grain height rubbers.

It is mainly used to make changes by the players who are the cut type or the front side defense type, but it may be used by sticking it on the inverted racket. The application differs depending on the battle type, and in general, the cut type that determines the amount of rotation and change of the cut has high and thin particles, but the defensive type such as the pen type that requests the change amount in the block and the spin reversal ability The low and slender ones tend to be in the middle of those in the front-shake attack type, where the weakness is weak and the attack power is required for grain height.

One piece rubber

Soft rubber excluding sponge.Second World WarPreviously there was only this rubber. It's a rubber that doesn't bounce too much and is hard to spin, but it has the advantage of being able to hit a stable ball. Currently, very few players use this rubber. In the past, there was also a rubber that reversed this form (corresponding to the back soft rubber without sponge), but it is currently prohibited by the rule.

Anti rubber

It looks like a normal soft back, but it has very little friction and is hard to rotate. It was mainly used in a style that combined with the back soft of the same color and utilizing the similarity and the difference in appearance of the rubber to reverse it and make it difficult for the opponent to understand the change of the hit ball. Since the use of the same color rubber on both sides was prohibited by the rule revision in 1983, the number of users has decreased dramatically. A soft sponge is often used to increase controllability, but some manufacturers are composed of a sponge and sheet that are hard enough to break.


A general table tennis (rigid table tennis) has a diameter of 40 mm and a mass of 2.7 g, and a large ball table tennis has a diameter of 44 mm and a mass of 2.2-2.4 g.There are white and orange colors.Either can be used for hard table tennis, but only orange for large balls.In some competitions, you can choose either color if it is difficult to see due to the surrounding environment (lighting, floor, background), uniform color, and table tennis table color.Since it is technically difficult to make a perfect sphere in large quantities with high accuracy, it is graded according to how close it is to a sphere made in the same manufacturing process.The highest one is called 3 star, and it is divided into 4 stages up to the lowest rank MUJI.Grade classification is determined by the amount of deviation when the ball is rolled on a slope.If it is a perfect ball, it goes straight down the slope, and the greater the distortion, the greater the deviation.Usually, 3 stars (three stars) are used in the tournament.Unlike other ball games, there were cases where multiple manufacturers were selected for the official ball of one tournament.[13].

Traditionally, balls with a diameter of 38 mm were used in hard table tennis games, but due to a rule change, the diameter has increased to 40 mm.The changes due to the change in diameter include the fact that it became difficult to fly due to the increased air resistance, the change in knuckle became smaller, the rally became easier to continue, and it became difficult to rotate. Be done.

The material used to becelluloidWas the mainstream, but in the 2010s it was replaced by non-celluloid materials (at the Olympic Games in 2012London OlympicsChanged by)[14].. It is said that the IOC asked the ITTF to change the material because the celluloid ball had a high risk of fire and there were cases where it was refused to be brought into the aircraft (in front of the Athens Olympics).[15].. The reason for the change by the ITTF is that celluloid is easily burned and deteriorates due to sunlight etc. and has poor durability, it is difficult to obtain good quality celluloid, and plastic material has less rotation and can suppress momentum and rally battle. It is said that there was a reason such as[14].

From 2014, as a rule of the Japanese Table Tennis Church, it is obligatory to manufacture with non-celluloid material, and plastic balls with a diameter of 40 mm (with and without seamless) have appeared.Changes such as a change in the shot feeling due to the change in the material to plastic, a relative decrease in the amount of rotation due to the inability to attach grain, and an increase in the initial velocity at the time of hitting.In addition to that, the seamless ball has a feature that the hitting ball is easy to stabilize because the variation in the momentum is reduced.On the other hand, it has been pointed out that plastic balls vary greatly in performance depending on the manufacturer and are fragile.[16].

The official celluloid sphere takes half a year to manufacture, three months to knead the celluloid into a plate, half a month to round and soak in alcohol, half a month to air dry, half a month to make a hemisphere, one sphere. It is completed through the process of half a month → drying → mark stamping → packaging to polish the surface.[17].

Side tape

Attach it so that the racket will not be damaged when it hits the table tennis table.Some people stick it so that it covers only the racket, and some people stick it so that it covers the sponge part of the rubber used.Generally, the width is 6 mm, 8 mm, 10 mm, and 12 mm.There is also a metal side tape, which allows you to adjust the weight and center of gravity of the racket.


Used to bond the rubber and racket. Currently approved for use are water-soluble adhesives, adhesive sheets, and solid adhesives. In the past, adhesives made by dissolving rubber in organic solvents were widely used.However, because organic solvents are harmful to the human body, the use of adhesives containing organic solvents was not accepted in 2007 at elementary school students in Japan. Starting with the ban on use from April 4, it was banned at competitions in Japan after September 1, 2007. It was banned at international competitions from September 9, 1.

Currently, the use of adhesives approved by the Japan Table Tennis Association is permitted in Japan. However, as of 2009, no adhesive has been certified by the International Federation of Table Tennis. This is because the applied adhesive may react with the residual solvent slightly contained in the rubber, and even if an adhesive that is approved for use is used, it remains in the racket inspection after the match. Disqualification will occur if solvent is detected. Therefore, to prevent this, it is recommended to open the rubber package, leave it for 72 hours, and then attach it to the racket using a certified adhesive.

Speed ​​glue

One of the organic solvent-based adhesives for bonding rubber and rackets. It contains more organic solvent than ordinary adhesives, and when applied to rubber, it volatilizes in the sponge and the sponge expands. When rubber is attached to the racket in this state, the sheet surface is pulled laterally by the amount of expansion of the sponge, so the rubber is always under load. The repulsive force and the frictional force are increased, resulting in a high hitting sound called a metallic sound. Since the sponge becomes soft, even if the sheet becomes a little hard, it becomes soft as a whole. However, since the rubber is always loaded, the rubber deteriorates faster than when using a general adhesive.

The first discovery of the glue effect was in Hungary.Tibor clamperIs said to be.In Japan, it was the first time in the first half of 1980 that former Japanese champion Takehiro Watanabe brought back a Belgian glue and used it.After that, after the development of speed glue, glue became widespread worldwide, and it became widespread mainly for offensive players.

It was the chairman of the International Federation of Table Tennis at that time that made it a problemIchiro OgimuraMet. Ogimura says that slowing down the ball speed from the viewpoint of popularizing table tennis, doping of equipment from the viewpoint of sports spirit is not preferable, many speed glues contain toluene, which is harmful to the human body and is similar to thinner play. Although there was a history of being used as a social problem by being used for inappropriate purposes other than table tennis, we proposed a ban on speed glue, but once Ogimura died, it was left blank.

Due to these problems, we have started to regulate the speed glue's toluene, and instead of toluene, heptane becomes the main component, which reduces elasticity and rotation. In order to compensate for the elasticity and the decrease in the amount of rotation, a method such as overcoating and steaming of speed glue was established, and the state of weasel play continued for a long time.

However, speed glue had accidents due to anaphylactic shock even when used for table tennis applications, and these health problems were discussed, and because it was highly volatile and dangerous in terms of transportation, speed glue was used. Has been prohibited. The ban on speed glue was originally planned to be enforced on September 2007, 9, but the following yearBeijing OlympicsIn the end, it will come into effect on September 2008, 9 after the Beijing Olympics.

Auxiliary agent

As mentioned above, non-toxic water-soluble adhesives (mainly composed of water, natural rubber, and acrylics) have become popular because the use of adhesives containing organic solvents has been banned. A non-adhesive auxiliary agent called water-soluble glue or water-soluble glue has been announced by the table tennis equipment manufacturer.

Similar to Speed ​​Glue, the state of using the auxiliary agent is superior in elasticity and rotation amount to the state of not using it, and since it contains mineral oil as the main component and does not contain organic solvent, it is relatively easy to handle and the effect lasts. It has the advantage of being easy. On the other hand, its low volatility has the disadvantages that it is not possible to reapply it by peeling off the rubber, the sharp response like speed glue cannot be compensated for, and the weight becomes heavy when applied.

However, the International Table Tennis Federation has revised the rules since October 2008, 10, saying that the act of applying an auxiliary agent is the act of processing and remodeling rubber (before sticking) and it corresponds to doping of equipment. Added the rule "Prohibition of post-processing".This effectively banned the use of auxiliaries.In response to this, the Japan Table Tennis Association (JTTA) will also provide boosters and other adhesive aids and speed aids at all competitions held after October 1, 2008, based on the notification of the revision of the rules of the International Table Tennis Federation. Announced that it will be banned[18][19].. In response to this, the table tennis product manufacturer that sells the targeted adhesive aid and speed aid announced that it will stop selling at the end of September 2008.

In this way, supplementary agents were banned just one month after the speed glue was banned, so manufacturers that have released glue and supplementary agents have a large inventory, which puts pressure on business. Right after thatEuropean Table Tennis ChampionshipHowever, because the racket inspection could not comply with the new rules, some players were still using supplements.

Table tennis table

The ping-pong table has a three-layer structure to prevent it from warping due to aging, and in the middle layer, elongated boards are arranged with horizontal seams offset like flooring floors.

Only official products of the Japan Table Tennis Association are allowed to be used in official matches in Japan, and their labeling is mandatory.

Prior confirmation is required, but personally designed uniforms can be used as long as they meet the above requirements.20071In the All Japan Table Tennis Championship held inNamoto YumiThe player entered the game in a unique uniform consisting of a one-shoulder and a mini skirt, which drew attention.

Most of the uniforms used to be mono-colored polo shirts, but in recent years many of them are made of a material and design similar to that of tennis and badminton, and have improved water repellency. Shorts were often unpopular with women, with short inseam being short, but in recent years, more and more men's thighs have been worn. You can also wear undershirts and spats.

There are no regulations regarding shoes, and any gym shoes can be worn.


It is mainly classified into forehand and backhand, but one of the characteristics of table tennis is that there is table technology that processes balls on the table in addition to this.

Until now, the forehand was the heyday, but the hitting speed has decreased due to repeated rule changes due to the toluene regulation of speed glue, the appearance of 40 mm balls, the prohibition of speed glue, etc. By compensating for the speed of the rally, the speed of the rally has increased overall, and the usage ratio of the backhand has also increased accordingly.

Forehand and backhand

The forehand is a method of hitting from the dominant hand side, and since the swing is large, it is possible to hit a powerful ball, but it is difficult to catch the ball at a fast hitting point, and there is a large risk when receiving a counter.

On the other hand, the backhand is a method of hitting from the opposite side of the dominant hand, and since the swing is small, it is difficult to get the power of the hit ball compared to the forehand, but since it can hit the ball at a faster hit point than the forehand, the opponent hits the ball and then returns. It takes less time to reach the opponent than the forehand, so it is effective when bringing it to a fast rally development.In addition, the backhand is roughly classified into three types, the type that hits with the same arm movement as the forehand, the type that hits with the elbow on the dominant hand side forward, and the type that hits from the opposite side of the dominant hand. Yes, it is necessary to use it properly according to the receiving time and the striking method.

In the heyday of the pen holder, it was basic to hit with the reverse foot of the dominant hand in front, but when the shake hand became widespread and the two-handed striking method was required, the reverse foot of the dominant hand was hit in front. Although the strike zone is wide in the striking method, the hitting point is slow, the backhand is difficult to swing, it is difficult to switch, and it is difficult to distinguish between the cross and the straight of the forehand.

Nowadays, when hitting the forehand and backhand with both feet almost parallel, when hitting straight with the forehand or hitting the cross with the backhand, the reverse foot of the dominant hand is pushed forward as in the past, or the backhand is used. The de facto standard is to put the foot on the dominant hand side forward each time to make it easier to swing.

A batting method that gives the ball a strong forward rotation (top spin).EuropeLet’s talk about the drivetopspin". It is a technique that is acquired after learning basic batting techniques to some extent, and is basically divided into two methods: rubbing and biting. Various batting methods represented by the following have been established, and even batting methods that are considered to be weak points, such batting methods have been popular, centering on top players. Also, with the evolution of equipment, rackets, and rubber, and changes in the practice environment, the number of players who have difficulty in power in the past has become more and more familiar with a single drive batting method, and is widely used by many battle-type players. Came to be.
The drive is basically more stable than the smash because it draws the trajectory of the arc line, and as will be described later, it is possible to hit various balls by applying speed and spin, so the range of tactics is widened. It is used.
Speed ​​drive
A drive with an orbit that is close to horizontal with an emphasis on speed.When you become a top player, you can hit a ball as fast as a smash.Since the performance of the rubber is high, it is relatively easy to control, it is easy to catch at a fast hitting point and it is easy to hit repeatedly, so it is the most used in the receive bang of the upward rotation system.
The difficulty is that it is difficult to receive the downward rotation system, and if you do not have the skill to apply rotation, it is easy to become a ball and smash.The big difference from the smash is the hitting sound, and while the smash makes a hitting sound, the speed drive has a smaller hitting sound than the smash.Further, regarding the amount of rotation, it is possible to secure the stability of the trajectory by multiplying the rotation by utilizing the effect of pulling the seat.
Loop drive
It is a drive on a track that is close to a mountain with an emphasis on rotation.While a normal drive draws a trajectory that extends after bouncing, a loop drive sinks.Basically, it is often used for the receive of the downward rotation system, but since the trajectory stability is higher than that of the speed drive, it is also used for the receive bang of the upward rotation system.However, if the orbit of the loop drive is high and it lands far from the net, it will be a slow drive, so it will be counterattacked.
The difficulty is that if it is a weak hitting method, it is easy to make a mistake even in the receiving of the downward rotation system, and the hitting speed tends to slow down, but depending on how the racket is swung, it is possible to hit a drive with a hitting speed that draws an arc line. ..
As research on loop drive progresses, a loop drive with a sinking trajectory that bounces on the opponent's court with a trajectory that draws a mountain arc near the opponent's net and then bounces on the opponent's court with a lower trajectory is used in the game. I came to be.Control is required to kill speed and drop it near the net while applying strong rotation.
Curve drive, shoot drive
A drive that gives the ball lateral rotation. When a right-handed player hits in the forehand, a left-handed drive is called a curve drive and a right-handed drive is called a shoot drive. The curve drive turns to the side opposite to the dexterity (as seen from the hitter), and the shot drive turns to the dexterity side. Like a changing ball in baseball, it changes in various ways depending on the direction of the rotation axis, the amount of rotation, and the speed. The angle of bending changes depending on the axis of rotation, and the direction of flight of the ball also changes when bouncing. Further, when returning a ball, the hit ball changes to the left and right due to the influence of lateral rotation. There may be some lateral rotation due to the habit of swinging the drive, but advanced players can consciously control the rotation.
Power drive
A drive that has a spin on a speed drive. In addition to the speed of smash and the intense rotation, it requires a proper amount of practice and strength to learn.
Counter drive
A drive that uses the repulsive force and the amount of rotation of the hit ball against the opponent's drive.Since there are scenes where a speedy drive is returned, not only the amount of practice but also the ability to discriminate the hit ball and the timing of returning the ball are required.Often used by advanced players.
A method of hitting the ball flat like playing a ball.Many players hit as a decisive hit.You can hit a fast ball with a swing smaller than the drive, but since the trajectory is straight, there is a high possibility that it will not enter if the angle shifts.Some of the world's top players hit smashes with an initial velocity of 280 km / h or more.It is difficult to hit the racket because of the speed, but it is possible to return the ball if you hit it by adjusting the angle of the racket.It is often used for soft rubber users who release the ball quickly, for receiving floating balls, and for receiving lobing, which will be described later.
Backhand smash (pen holder)
With a pen holder type back, pull a freehand with your right foot in front (if you are right-handed), put your weight on the opponent's court while moving your arm with your shoulder as a fulcrum, and hit the opponent's court.It is difficult to read the course because it swings compactly with a small amount of preliminary movement.

Bench technology

The table tennis technology is a technology peculiar to table tennis, and is basically a technology used when receiving the service of the other party that fits on the table or when the receiving side returns the ball for a short time.

What is common to the tabletop technology is that the foot on the dominant hand side is moved under the table according to the receive position before hitting the ball.The method of moving the foot and hitting the ball at the same time is basic except when hitting the ball in a rally because the extra force due to the weight shift before is applied at the time of hitting and it is easy to cause net mistakes and over mistakes. Not recommended for.

In addition, it is necessary to consider tactical bargaining as a set, such as using Tsuttsuki to induce a sweet loop drive on the other side, or bringing it to a rally of inquiries in the middle or apse with a bang on the table such as Chiquita.

A batting method in which a short ball on a table is hit with a more compact swing than a cut. It is often the case that a slightly long ball that does not come out of the table is turned down and returned. The risk of making a mistake is low, but the probability of being attacked by the opponent's third ball is high. However, depending on the technique, it is possible to induce mistakes by making a strong downward rotation or horizontal rotation, or by making a long or short change. In addition, a non-rotating type Tsutsuki that does not rotate may be called a knuckle.
A method of hitting a ball that is mainly in the lower rotation system of the opponent and catches the hit ball immediately after the bounce and returns it to the opponent's court in a small size so that it makes two or more bounces.It is mainly used for receiving short serve on the table.It is effective as a defense technology because the drive cannot be physically hit against a low stop.However, if it floats, it becomes a chance ball for the opponent.When it comes to receiving advanced players, it is possible to return a short upper-rotating ball with a stop or apply a strong downward rotation.Returning a stop as a stop is called a double stop.In addition, it is sometimes called a drop shot to make a stop that makes a small drop on the net against a lowered opponent.
A batting method in which the opponent's short service or the ball on the table is returned by giving forward rotation on the table and paying. The risk is high when countered, so it is a very compact batting without takeback. If technology improves, it is possible to hit a ball with a speed that can be said to be a strong hit on the table, and it is also possible to aim for a score directly from the receive.
It is a batting method that hits like pushing out, mainlyPen holderUsed to attack the back side of.Shake handCompared to the backhand of, it is harder to exert power, but depending on the method, it can strike equal or better.
Tabletop drive (tabletop forehand drive)
A method of hitting a ball that does not come out of the table by rubbing it against the ball. The big difference from the forehand flick is that it requires a take-back when hitting the ball, resulting in a large swing. Originally, it was a table-top technology developed in China to take advantage of the characteristics of adhesive rubber, and it has the disadvantage of being restricted by the tools used.
In some cases, it may be called Chiquita Receive.Peter Colbell(Czech Republic) is a batting method, which is a backhand horizontal rotation type flick. There is also a drive striking method that applies this striking method. Basically used by shake hand players, but even with a penBack strikeIs possible with. It came to be called this way because it drew a curve like Chiquita Banana (one of the brand names of banana). Also, the reverse lateral rotation type Chiquita that hits from the swing of the Chiquita is called "inverse Chiquita", and there are various hitting methods,Kato MiyuThe reverse chiquita that is often used bySimon GojiThe reverse chiquita that is often used by is called "Gogeta".
Back hand drive on bench (BD on bench)
Backhand version of the bench drive. It is easier to catch the ball at a hitting point as fast as the Chiquita compared to the bench drive, and the BD on the bench captures the top of the ball against the Chiquita that captures the side of the ball, so it is possible to get out with one shot with speed Is. Also, since the swing is compact, it has the merit that it does not bounce too much on the table and is less subject to the constraints of the equipment. However, catching the ball above is easily affected by the rotation (especially downward rotation) of the opponent's service, and in addition to the swing speed to some extent, the freehand, the movement of the body, and the weight at the time of hitting the ball. It needs to be moved. Since it has been used for a long time in the world championship due to the heavy use of Chinese Zhang Jie, it has become widespread not only in top players in the world but also in junior and elementary and junior high school classes.

Applied technology

A defensive technique that returns the ball to the opponent's smash or drive so that it hits the opponent's smash or drive at the rising period or the top of the bounce in the front-middle team.When blocking with the back software, it is necessary to adjust the racket angle accurately.Since the purpose of the block is to return the opponent's bang, the swing is not so big.There are also techniques to change the return ball, such as "kill and return", "return as it is", and "add your own power and return" the power of the opponent's ball.Depending on the skill level, depending on the player, it is possible to make a block that kills the power enough to make two bounces on the table against the opponent's bang.There are also players who take the tactic of inviting mistakes by rotating and changing with a side spin block, etc., or blocking all the balls hit by the opponent and aiming at the connecting ball.If you become a grain height rubber user, you may use block technology that utilizes the spin reversal ability peculiar to grain height rubber such as cutability blocks and side spin blocks.
It refers to all the techniques to return the opponent's bang with a bang. There is no fixed way to hit because the purpose is to punch out an opponent who is not in a proper position and to use the opponent's ball power, and it has a defensive side like a counter block from a hard hit like a counter drive Technology is also included. This is a high-risk, high-return tactic that has a high degree of difficulty but a high score because it strikes at the opponent's swipe.
Mima punch / beam punch
Mito Ito,Tomokazu HarimotoA general term for the counter technology used by.It is one of the most difficult methods of hitting table tennis.What is common is the striking method by swinging the 2nd position of the internal rotation of the shoulder joint, which is distinguished as a completely different technique from the general counter striking method which is the swing of the 1st position of the internal rotation of the shoulder joint. ..Compared to a general counter, the range of motion of the arm is large, so it is easy to put out power, and because it is easy to put out a knuckle, it becomes a heavy ball.
It is a method used by cut type players with a large swing in the middle and apse, and is distinguished from Tsuttsuki. There are fore and back striking methods, but since grain height or table soft is pasted on the back side, it is often the case that the back is cut frequently. At the advanced level, in addition to the downward rotation (backspin), there are also players who mix diagonal downward rotation and lateral rotation.
Meat strike
It is an attack method mainly used by front soft rubber players. It is a hitting method that repels a spinning ball strongly and receives it like a smash. The striking method that finely adjusts the angle of the racket according to the rotation of the opponent is sometimes called angle striking. Whether or not to distinguish them strictly is a matter of judgment. Since the racket is shaken off compactly and the ball is not rubbed, it does not rotate much and the power itself is not so great, but it may be a decisive hit because the opponent's defense can not be made in time because it hits with a high hit point quickly.
It is a technique to return the ball by using the lower rotation of Tsuttsuki and the cut.Since the opponent's lower rotation is used, RBI and timing are required.There is also a method of returning the ball by applying drive rotation while using this.The difficulty is that the hitting speed is slow, and if it floats, it is easy for the opponent to hit the receive, but laterNorio TakashimaByEight-figure method[23]By devising "", the drawbacks of conventional cut hitting have been almost eliminated, and it has also been applied to the drive hitting method.
A batting method in which the ball is launched high to gain time and return. It invites the opponent's mistakes, but is easily hit by the opponent. However, since the hit ball is high, it is easily affected by the rotation at the time of bouncing, so it is possible to return the ball as a ball that is difficult for the opponent to hit by striking it with intense rotation.
フ ィ ッ シ ュ
The technique of returning the opponent's ball with a trajectory lower than lobing in the middle and apse. It is said that the fish hitting point is later than the block hitting point and the fish hitting point is past the apex. It is a tethering ball that surpasses the so-called opponent's attack, but it is harder to hit than robing. A tactic is also used in which the opponent's attack is overwhelmed by fish, and a counterattack is made at a stretch when the opponent attacks.

Service (serve)

At table tennis, the rally starts from the service. Since the game is assembled as the starting point of the attack, if you become a top player, you can use the service replay by Let to escape the service that missed the ball with let and prevent unnecessary goals, miss the opponent's receive timing, Many players adopt advanced service tactics for purposes such as disturbing the pace.

Services are broadly divided into fore services and back services, and there are short services and long services, respectively.In a broad sense, short service refers to a service that makes two or more bounces on the opponent's court, and long service refers to a service that makes one bounce on the opponent's court and goes out of the table tennis table.In table tennis, rotation (spin) is very important in service, and it is roughly divided into vertical rotation (upward rotation / downward rotation), horizontal rotation (forward / horizontal rotation / reverse horizontal rotation), and no rotation. There are variations such as diagonal rotation (forward horizontal up rotation / forward horizontal down rotation / reverse horizontal up rotation / reverse horizontal down rotation) and gyro rotation.However, since it is possible to change the aspect ratio of the diagonal rotation depending on the angle and orientation of the racket, the service motion, etc., the amount of change differs depending on the aspect ratio, the amount of rotation, the speed, etc. even if the rotation is the same.

Since 2002, when handhide and bodyhide services were completely banned, it became easier for the other party to see the service, and advanced service technology developed. Typical ones are fake motion, hiding the racket before and after hitting, follow through, vertical service, etc.

Type of service (serve)

Fore service
A service that uses the fore side of the racket on the dominant arm side of your body. Depending on the player, the grip varies depending on the purpose, such as easy control, widening the range of movement of the wrist to apply strong rotation, and quick return after servicing. In some cases, the grip will be similar. In singles games, there are many cases where services are basically issued from the position on the back side of the team, and there are cases where services are provided near the center depending on the game development and tactics.
Up-down service
A type of fore service, which is a service that swings the racket up or down from the same swing path and uses up and down rotation separately. If the technology improves, it is possible to mix a horizontal rotation system, to make it a vertical service described later, or to add fake motion.
YG (Young Generation) Service
A type of fore service, which swings from the inside of the body to the outside to apply rotation, so it is mainly used for reverse lateral rotation services. Before the rule was revised, it was often used together with normal foreservice because it was possible to hide the impact of a hit ball. Even after the ban on bodyhide/handhide services, it has been used to increase variations in rotation, change service tactics and rally development. Commonly known as YG and Yangene.
Involvement service
A type of fore service, in which the racket head is raised slightly upwards. As with the YG service, the amount of rotation is inferior due to the reverse lateral rotation system service, but since there is no need to change the grip of the racket, there are many users mainly for female players who need a quick return.
Vertical service
Although it is a type of horizontal rotation service, it can provide forward horizontal and reverse horizontal services. The forehand service was developed with the prohibition of bodyhide and handhide services, and is mainly used by top athletes. Since the racket is erected at the time of impact and the surface of the racket is shown to the opponent, it is difficult for the opponent to know in which direction the rotation is applied. Due to the characteristics, horizontal rotation is always applied, so there is a disadvantage that pure lower rotation service and upper rotation service cannot be performed. It is technically possible to use it as a back service.
Back service
A service that uses the back side of the racket. The position at which the service is provided for one's body depends on the athlete. You can quickly get back in position.
Crouching service
When you serve, you should bend your knees and crouch while you serve. It is possible to apply a strong rotation, but there is also the drawback that the reaction to the returning ball will be delayed if it returns slowly to its original position.
Prince serve
It is a kind of crouching service. It is a serve that bends down and extends the racket vertically and cuts the ball on the back of the racket to rotate.
Speed ​​long service
A type of long service that accelerates the second bounce near the end line of the opponent's court. It is easy to aim at the service ace and is also used for the purpose of not letting the opponent hit with a sufficient posture, but there is also a disadvantage that the server can not return to the posture quickly and receive a goal when receiving the counter.
Throw-up service (Hightos service)
Serve by throwing the ball high when making a serve toss. If you don't get used to it, the trajectory of the falling ball will shift from the hitting point and you will make mistakes, but the rotation and speed will increase. In addition, it is necessary to check before the service because the light of the illumination is exposed. Some players in the world raise 7-8 meters toss.

Fake motion follow-through

It is a type of service technology that can make the opponent dazzle before and after the ball is hit in the service.

In normal services, the rotation pattern of the service is easy to spot, so fake motion is used to put a fake at the service at the competition level. Also, in the follow-through immediately after hitting the service, by raising the elbow, making a movement different from the swing trajectory of the racket, raising the elbow to change the direction of the racket, hiding the racket, etc. , Used as a means to deceive the other party. There are many users, mainly top players.

Battle type

Shake hand
Drive main battle type
The battle type that is currently the mainstream among many battle types. Keeping a little distance from the table tennis table, making full use of the front, back, left, and right footwork, a strong drive is always applied to the ball, always looking aggressively and aggressively. The rally battle between drive main battle types is well-known for its powerfulness and power.
Front team haste type
As its name suggests, it is a battle type that always plays close to the table tennis table. A play style in which you can instantly see the type and course of the opponent's ball and start an attack at an early timing. It can be said that the battle type requires the quickest judgment and dynamic visual acuity, but even small players can exert their strength, so many Japanese top players take this battle type.
Cut main battle type
A dynamic battle type that responds to the opponent's bang with a ball that has a strong downward rotation at a position away from the table tennis table, and when it sees a chance, it goes forward at once and fights back.It is often thought of as a defensive battle type, but since the shake hand itself is weak against the middle and a defensive style is impossible, it is actually an aggressive battle type that also uses cuts.In addition to the drive main battle type and front team haste type technology, footwork with a wide range of motion, tenacious cutting technology, and power and speed when turning to offense are required, so it is exclusively for advanced players. (The above is from page 5 of "Mirumiru Improvement Sports Practice Menu 106 Table Tennis".)
Alien defense
A battle type that scores points due to the opponent's mistake against the short without leaving the table.Generally, a grain height rubber is pasted on the back side of the racket, and the change ball and the slowness of the course due to it invite the opponent's mistake.Usually, the back soft rubber or front soft rubber is stuck on the fore side, and the ball that comes to the fore attacks with a smash or drive.In addition, when hitting a ball slowly or quickly, the racket may be reversed during the rally to attack.
In contrast to the foreign short type called pen grain, the foreign offensive and defensive type is called shake grain.Unlike the heterogeneous short type, it is vulnerable to the middle, so it is not possible to take a defensive style that changes with blocks, so aggressive grain height rubber is often attached.JapaneseFukuoka HarunaIs famous.
All round type
A battle type in which back soft rubber is attached to both sides and points are scored by making full use of many techniques such as drive lobing. It requires tactical flexibility, high physical ability, and technical ability to fight in the front, middle, and rear teams. SwedishWaldnerAnd JapanJun MizutaniIs famous.
Pen holder
Drive main battle type
Popular namePendora.. Attack mainly by forehand drive. Many players make dynamic moves that take advantage of their footwork, such as turning around and jumping. It is said that it is difficult to hit a backhand drive that is stronger than the shake handdrive type due to its structure, but some players are good at quick push and backhand smash that have enough points to make up for it. However, the weak point of the pen holder is basically the back. Therefore, it is often the case that they run into the opposite course and defensively. However, recently, mainly in China,Back strikeThere are also players who hit a powerful backhand drive (so-called backside drive). KoreanLiu Chengmin-Gold,ChineseWang Hao-Ma Lin・ Xu Xin, JapanKai YoshidaIs famous.
Table software haste type
A battle type that uses a table soft rubber to connect to an attack with the shortest amount of effort possible and to aggressively attack. Mainly used smash as the final hit. There are also players who hit the backhand drive by the back-side hitting method like the drive main battle type. JapaneseToshio Tasaki,ChineseLiu Guo Liang(Former China National Team Coach, now Chairman of the China Table Tennis Association) is famous.
Heterogeneous short type
This refers to a type in which rubber is pasted on both sides using a reversing type or Chinese style pen holder racket, and grain height rubber is pasted on one side.Commonly known as pen grain.The combination of back soft + grain height and front soft + grain height is common.During the game, play near the table, break the opponent's timing by changing the block due to the grain height rubber, attack when the opponent has a gap, flip the racket and hit the opponent with a different ball quality It is a defensive battle type, such as inviting mistakes.Due to changes in rubber standards and changes in rules, the power of grain-height rubber has decreased from the past, and very few top players have adopted this type of battle.For girls, he is a former Chinese national teamLuxembourg OfYuka RenIs famous.

Large ball table tennis

Large ball table tennis (which was called new table tennis before April 2012, 24) was devised by the Japan Table Tennis Association for the purpose of popularizing table tennis, and rules and equipment standards were established.1988Enacted in.

It is a table tennis competition that is held using a ball larger than the ball (diameter 40 mm) used in general table tennis (rigid table tennis).Since the ball is large and the influence of air resistance increases, the speed and amount of rotation of the ball are reduced as compared with the conventional table tennis, and the rally is easy to continue.

In Japan, it is popular mainly among middle-aged and elderly people as a lifelong sport that even elderly people can easily do, and many competitions are held.

The main difference from hard table tennis

  • The ball used is large (44 mm in diameter) and light
  • Only the front soft rubber can be used as the rubber, but the grain height rubber cannot be used.
  • The height of the net is 2 cm higher
  • Promotion rule is 8 minutes

And so on.

From April 2012, 4, the name was changed to the current name, and basic rules and competition rules were established.

2018年3月31日までは、3セット11点制で12:12以降は13ポイント先取で1セット先取、サービスのトスの高さ(硬式では16 cm)の規定がなかった。

From April 2018, 4, the competition rules have been changed to "competition rules", which is in line with the basic rules of hard table tennis, with a difference of 1 points after deuce, the service rule is stationary for 2 to 2 seconds, and the toss is high. A rule has been added, such as raising the height by 3 cm or more.In addition, the basic rule has been renamed to "Recreation Rule".

From January 2019, 1, in the competition rules, the rules regarding competition clothing and advice are the same as those for hard table tennis.The color of the competition clothes was changed from "any color regardless of the color of the ball" to "a color clearly different from the color of the ball used", and the advice was changed to "anytime except during the rally".

From April 2022, 4, the rubber rule, which was only black and red in both the competition rule and the recreation rule, has been changed to "one is black and the other is a bright color that can be clearly distinguished from the color of the ball", just like the rigid type. Color rubber can now be used.

Soft (Japanese style) table tennis

The first table tennis to be introduced in Japan is1902ToTokyo Higher Normal School OfGenso Tsuboi United KingdomIs supposed to be the first to bring back table tennis equipment from[6]. For a while, there was development of Japanese unique tools and rules[6], Japan's first table tennis governing body was founded1921Around 10th year of Taisho, competitions were held on soft (Japanese) table tennis. The main difference from hard table tennis

  • The diameter of the ball used is 36.9 mm or more and 38.9 mm or less.
  • The weight of the ball is 2 g or more and 2.13 g or less
  • Net height is 2 cm higher 17.25 cm

And so on.

With the popularization of large ball table tennis and the change of the rules for hard table tennis,2001(13) The curtain came to an end at the end.

Table tennis as entertainment and culture

Compared to other sports, table tennis is easier to meet the conditions for playing the game (understanding the rules / skills / places / tools / securing players), so it is easy for men and women of all ages to become familiar, practical, and a lifelong sport.

After that, team performance was good1995Although audience mobilization increased in (7)[11][12], Team performance and audience mobilization were both sluggish.

1996(8) A question and answer about "Chiba Marine Dome" was held at the Chiba City Assembly in March.[13], Some prefecture and city government officials have called for "Chiba Marine to become a dome" as a breakthrough to improve the environment, which is easily affected by weather conditions such as slow mobilization of Lotte spectators and strong winds.

1999When Lotte was doing well in the beginning of the season (11),Asahi MatsuiThe mayor expressed that he would consider a dome if he wins[14].. At this time, the construction cost was about 80 billion yen, and it was planned to use private capital.[15]..However, the result ended up in 4th place.

In March 2020 (Reiwa 2), 3 years have passed since the opening, and in light of the aging situation, Chiba City is considering a large-scale renovation or rebuilding to a new stadium (including another location). Is underway[61].

In Chiba City, we estimated the cost of a large-scale renovation and found that it would cost 50 to 70 billion yen, which greatly exceeds the originally planned 80 billion yen.Considering long-term costs such as maintenance costs, rebuilding is one of the options.[61][62].

The infield has two layers and the outfield has one layer. The overall shape is circular, but the outer shape has a large proportion of infield seats. In the past, removable movable seats for storing soccer courts on the fieldDugoutAlthough it was next to it, it was abolished when the field seats were added and the movable seats became field seats. Since 2006 when the control of the stadium has been transferred to the baseball team, small renovations have been repeated, and some seats have been replaced with box seats. In addition to the indoor bleachers installed at the top of the infield lower stand, the "Marines Press Sheet" is located near the first floor of the backseat (under the back net) on the first floor.

The infield stand and the outfield stand have a separate structure and are connected by a passage in the hall. In the Lotte sponsored game, the outfield seat entrants can enter the infield part, but conversely the infield seat entrants cannot enter the outfield part from 2006. Until 2005, the strategy was adopted only in games where the outfield seats were full, and games where congestion was expected, such as games for determining championships.

2005 Playoffs Stage 1 Round 1So, the right side (Lotte side) outfield seats were full and the left side (Seibu side) area was opened for Lotte fans, but the Seibu cheering team took up the seat beside the left side back screen to prevent Lotte fans from entering. Therefore, there was a confusion that some Lotte fans could not enter even though they had tickets. Currently, the center side of the left side outfield seats is set in advance as the Marines side (excluding some competition), and the ratio of visitors and home seats is 3:7.

Paper tapes and confetti are only allowed with permission. When players enter the dugout, cushions made of Tempur are placed on the bench.

Unlike other stadiums, there are no restrictions on noises because there is no residential area nearby, even if the game time is late.


The size of the soccer court was small, but the sliding movable seats were not used, so the foul ground is considerably larger than a baseball field with a fair ground of the same class. From Lotte's headquarters to the addition of field wing seats,NPBHas the largest ground area among the baseball stadiums where the baseball team is based inHanshin Koshien StadiumWas wider, but has been corrected).The ground area after installing the field wing seat, submarine seat, and home run lagoon is 12,773.00m.2(As of August 2020, 8)[74]It has become.

The ground is all artificial turf, in early 2003ア ス ト ロIt was replaced with a short pile artificial turf "Next turf" (pile length 30 mm). At the time of replacement, it was a high-performance type called "high-tech artificial turf". Deterioration such as pile hardening was pointed out around 2009, and Lotte submitted a request form for refitting artificial turf to Chiba City off the same year. Due to chronic financial difficulties in Chiba City, it was difficult to generate replacement costs.Therefore, the construction cost of about 5 million yen was rebuilt by the Lotte team and the city repayed over 2011 years from 6. It was decided to work.

Re-covering started in 2010 off, construction started at the end of the same year, and completed in late February 2011.Astro's short pile type "Astro Stage Mj Marine Version" (pile length 2mm) was adopted.BasicallySeibu DomeIt is the same kind as the one laid in, but at the marine stadium, cushioning material is laid under the underpad laid under the turf to reduce the impact on the legs and waist, based on the requests of the Lotte Association. ing. Each pile has a core, making it closer to the feel of natural grass. A person involved with the Astro said, "The real pleasure is how we can meet the demands of the players. We are most happy that the players play the best and win."

In response to this artificial turf replacement problem, the city systematically proceeded with facility repairs for the entire stadium, which has been aging for more than 20 years and has been donated by fans from all over the country, including citizens. Donations andFurusato tax paymentThe “Chiba Marine Stadium Fund” has been created, which seeks widespread cooperation using the “system” and has started accepting applications from September 2010, 9. The facility naming right was introduced at the stadium from March 1, 2011, and part of the profit from the sale will be used for the refurbishment expense. (The name of the fund will be changed to the "Marine Fund" from the same day with the introduction of the naming right. About the introduction process ofLater).

In 2018MizunoSekisui ResinAdopted "MS Craft Baseball Turf", an artificial turf for baseball jointly developed by[PR 4][76]..The total construction cost is 3 million yen.The re-covering work started off 2000, completed on February 2017, 2018, and started to be used for the open game in March of the same year.[82].

Long time agoAmerican FootballIt is a member of society leagueX LeagueBelongingObic seagullsWas playing an official game.The outfield was used, with goal posts on the right and left sides. Since the field was replaced with artificial turf for baseball in 2018, no official game has been held.Also, when installing the home run lagoon and submarine seats, it is unclear whether the game can be held now because it is not supposed to hold an American football game.

score board

At the beginning of the opening, the score display was a white lightning type, and in 1992, when Lotte became the base, a large image device with a high-intensity discharge tube was added (Matsushita Electric IndustrialMadeAstro Vision, Length 7.844m x Width 9.911m).When it was completely renovated in 2002 due to aging, LEDs were used for the score display.Furthermore, in the renovation in 2008, the video equipment was updated to the LED type Aurora Vision made by Mitsubishi Electric, which is slightly larger than before.

The video equipment has been equipped with "Marine visionIs nicknamed.There is a wind speed display on the right side, and a 45-minute counter for soccer and an elapsed time counter for American football on the left side.Just above the wind speed displayWindmill-type anemometerIs provided.

From 2011, the display method of the ball count has been changed from the conventional "SBO (strike ball out from top)" order to "BSO" according to international rules. With the establishment of the stadium naming rights, the electronic display above the Marine Vision was changed to "QVC Marine Field" instead of "LOTTERIA" up to the previous year, and changed to the "JR Tokai" billboard below. Hung up the "CHIBA LOTTE MARINES" sign (2013:Suntory"Soul Makgeolli", posted by Sumitomo Mitsui Banking since 2014). The number of pitches has been displayed on the referee since 2012.

The school name part displayed in the inning score when high school baseball is held can only display two characters (Spring,Toki,TakoIs as it is.Sendai Matsudo= Senmatsu,Funabashi City= City ship,Narashino(= Nara)[Annotation 7].. Although there is a dedicated column for displaying the ball speed, the ball speed is displayed in the central aurora vision (along with the advertisement) during the match, probably because the characters are small.

The scoreboard broke down during the Lotte-Oryx game on August 2014, 8. The names of all ORIX players have disappeared, and there are only four Lotte players: Kato, Kakuchu, Okada, and Masuda.

2016年に約5億円をかけてスコアボード部分を改修、メインスクリーン(縦10.08m×横28.8m(1,201型))1面、外野スタンドサブスクリーン(縦5.76m×横20.16m(825型))2面およびバックネット裏サブスクリーン(スコアなどを表示する縦2.4m×横11.2m(451型)と、打率、投球スピード等を表示する縦2.4m×横2.88m(148型))2面の合わせて5面の三菱電機製オーロラビジョンが設置された[PR 6][79]..This is because the team requested the scoreboard owner Chiba City to improve it, and the mayor wrote a letter to the editor saying that the video was difficult to see, and as mentioned above, there was a breakdown due to aging. rice field.The maintenance project cost is about 7 million yen, and Chiba City and Lotte baseball team will bear the cost at a ratio of 2: 1.[83]..In addition to the conventional scoreboard, subvisions will be installed at the rotating billboards near the poles on the left and right sides.[PR 7].. For the big clock, the 45-minute timer for soccer has been removed, and the stadium mark will appear instead.

Main board (back screen) is in the centerMeiji Jingu StadiumYou can now display the number of hits for each innings in the same way as. In addition, the basic inning display is only 9 innings. Professionals have extended 12 times (2016/2017 seasonJapan seriesexcept for[Annotation 8]), so add 9 innings next to 3 times. Amateur andsoft ballIs written up to 10 times, and from 11 times onward, it will be re-filled from 1.In the Lotte-Orix match on September 2016, 9, and the Lotte-Nippon-Ham fight on July 24, 2021, it was displayed as an amateur type probably because of a malfunction of the equipment.

Ribbon vision

It was refurbished in 2008 and was added to the eaves directly above the infield seats on the first floor. It uses the "Aurora Ribbon" made by Mitsubishi Electric. It is nicknamed "marines wing vision" by a public invitation from fans. During home games, a message celebrating the good play of Marines (hit, home run, successful steal, etc.)ReliefThe words "It's your time" and "We believe" will be displayed on the pitch, a message corresponding to the CM in Marine Vision, and other notices from the stadium side will be displayed.
