Joola Rhyzer Pro 45 Table Tennis Rubber

Rhyzer Pro 45 maintains the Rhyzer Pro technologies of amazing speed and spin, but with a 45° sponge.

The wide pimples beneath the rubber surface are positioned closely together increasing the contact with the ball and consequently the spin potential.

The medium pore sponge provides the typical feel associated with medium hard sponges but with amazing dynamics.

In combination with the thin tensioned rubber, Rhyzer 45 is ideal for players looking for high speed and spin potential but with an easy play feel which gives you confidence in all situations.

JOOLA Rhyzer Pro 50 Table Tennis Rubber

JOOLA presents the completely new technically Professional level series of Rhyzer rubbers. Designed to compensate for the reduced spin and speed of the new plastic ball, the range incorporates two innovative approaches, the improvement of sponge technology and the advancement of pimple geometry.

The rubber surface is extremely thin, grippy and under high tension. In combination with the narrow, relatively short pimples beneath the rubber surface, maximum catapult effect is produced and the flexible pimples provide an extended dwell time of the ball, resulting in sensitive strokes and excellent spin features.

As a result of the very thin surface a thicker Powermax sponge has been adopted in the max version resulting in even greater dynamics.

The new JOOLA Rhyzer 48 Table Tennis Rubber has arrived!

A superb rubber for strong attacking spin players – with a thin topsheet and the hard 48 degree sponge this new rubber has huge dynamics.

Out gun your opponent with dangerous winning loops and counter topspins without losing touch in your precision play…

As used by the Grand Prix King and Ping Pong legend – Chris Doran (England No.6)

Cost: £56.99 £46.99


New JOOLA Rhyzer is the real deal! 

Richard’s ‘Staff Pick’ has been a while in arriving but boy it’s been worth the wait…

Richard Carden, Technical & Sales Advice: When it comes to the new technology of rubbers with a thin topsheet and thick sponge, no rubber has impressed me more than Joola Rhyzer 48.

The spin and grip are fantastic thanks to Rhyzer’s spin optimized topsheet but the speed of the rubber is monstrous!! It is by quite a margin one of the fastest rubbers I have ever tried and you don’t have to swing like a mad man to access this pace. Despite its raw performance Rhyzer 48’s ease of use is what impresses me most.

Unlike some of the top rubbers you don’t need to be the best player in the world to tap into Rhyzer’s potential and believe me when I say there is a lot of potential. But, be warned this rubber is not for the faint hearted and a high level of skill will be needed to tame this rubber and keep the ball from flying long.

Rhyzer 48 is another step forward in performance compared to the previous generation of rubbers and in my opinion this is a rubber that has the potential to be extremely popular.

If you’re looking for a rubber for maximum attack and you like smashing bombs from both wings you need to experience this rubber. You won’t be disappointed!!

If I was to recommend a complete set-up with this rubber then I would recommend a Joola Rossi Emotion with Rhyzer 48 Forehand and Rhyzer 43 Backhand.

A good player, he is now fully fit from a broken ankle and making his way (slowly) back to his top 100 ranking. Richard is the Current Canterbury Champion and plays in a number of leagues, County and British league.

TIBHAR Aurus Prime Table Tennis Rubber – An ideal choice for the offensive technical player who plays an attacking all action game and requires perfect ball placement!

The smooth and spin oriented rubber surface combined with a middle hard, catapult loaded 47.5° sponge will enable the user, in almost any playing situation, to put the sufficient amount Our of pressure on their opponent.

With the innovative SSP technology (a thinner and smooth rubber surface combined with a thicker sponge), the result is a fast and catapult friendly offensive rubber.

The ‘Prime’ version of Aurus comes with our new and exclusive purple coloured sponge.

Cost: £51.99 £43.99


TIBHAR Aurus Prime – an all action Staff Pick but why? 

Our newest member of staff, Matt Leete, plays with Aurus Prime – he’s ranked No 4 nationally in the U/21’s so it’s working for him!

Matt Leete, Technical & Sales Advice:

‘I currently use Aurus Prime on the backhand. I find that this rubber can generate lots of speed with an enormous amount of spin at the same time. There is great control with this rubber, turning a block into a counter/topspin becomes very easy and not much action is needed with this rubber.

I also find that controlling the ball against heavy spin with either a simple block or re-loop is far easier than any other rubber I have used in the past – I would say this is because of a thinner rubber surface matched with the thicker sponge.

Also when over the table, there is great control, easy to keep tight without the ball pinging off your bat!’

If I was to recommend a complete set-up with this rubber then I would recommend a Drinkhall Powerspin Carbon with Rhyzer 48 on the forehand and TIBHAR Aurus Prime on the backhand.

Matt Leete, Bribar Sales & Technical

Matt is nationally ranked at no 4 in the U/21’s and at no 21 in the Men’s – not only does he play the sport very well but he has real passion and knowledge with it.

He has just recently started at Bribar and is getting to grips with a really busy start to the season.

Unfortunately, Matt’s office football ‘dream team’ has not had such a good start, currently languishing in 9th… we are now just avoiding playing him at Table Tennis!

Bribar Coaches

Bribar Coach Profiles

We are delighted to support some fantastic coaches with sponsorship from TIBHAR and JOOLA. You can read the latest thoughts, events and experiences of our coaching team in the TIBHAR Coaching Blog section!

Tom Lodziak

Tom is head coach for Cambridge-Parkside Table Tennis Club. He is also a keen table tennis blogger and publishes table tennis tutorials on his popular Table Tennis YouTube channel.

Read our interview with Tom

What’s your main club(s)?

I am currently head coach at Cambridge-Parkside Table Tennis Club. Before this, I helped set up Highbury Table Tennis Club in London.

How long have you been coaching and who was an influence for you to start coaching?

I started coaching part-time in 2011 and became a full-time coach in 2018. My biggest influence initially was Sanket Shah – a popular community coach in London. I liked the way he created a positive atmosphere in his training sessions. There was always a sense of fun, which made me want to help out too.

What part of coaching do you enjoy most?

Spreading some table tennis love! I enjoy doing 1-to-1 sessions as you can focus on a player’s specific needs and help the player make big improvements. I also really enjoy working with beginners, especially the ‘lightbulb’ moments, when a player learns a new skill and starts beaming ear to ear.

What’s your favourite coaching exercise?

1 or 2 balls to the backhand, 1 or 2 balls to the forehand. This can be done as either multi-ball or with me taking part in the rally. It’s a simple but effective drill for developing technique, rallying skills, recovery and footwork.

Who’s your favourite TT Player and why?

I enjoy watching Timo Boll – his playing style, his use of spin, how he has adapted his game as he has got older. I also like how his forehand technique is different to many of the other top players in the world. Just shows there are many different ways to play and succeed at table tennis.

What equipment do you use?

Joola Rhyzer 48 (forehand), Joola Rhyzer 43 (backhand) with a Joola Fever blade.

Give a top tip for young players…

Focus on consistency, consistency and consistency.

What do you like to do to relax outside TT?

Sleep. And watch repeats of Bullseye when I get home from table tennis late at night (seriously, I’m a big fan, ONE HUNDRED AND EIGHTY!).

Stephen Gertsen

Stephen’s enthusiasm and enjoyment of coaching is infectious, he’s an experienced coach at all levels and is currently the National Youth Coach for Table Tennis Scotland.

Read our interview with Stephen

About me:

Stephen Gertsen, 31, married, daughter called Jessie and another little monkey on the way in November!

What’s your main club(s)?

National Youth Coach for Table Tennis Scotland, coach at a few different clubs across Scotland, based in the Scottish Highlands (www.stephengertsen.co.uk)

How long have you been coaching and who was an influence for you to start coaching?

I’ve been coaching for 17 years and the biggest influence for me in terms of coaching is Dave Treharne.

What part of coaching do you enjoy most?

I find coaching very rewarding, I enjoy a blend of working with complete beginners to elite level. I like working with all ages and abilities but there is nothing more rewarding than seeing a player improve who you have helped from the very beginning of their career, this is a great feeling. I obviously enjoy seeing them win but I also enjoy helping teach them life skills through sport just as much, for me this is very important.

What’s your favourite coaching exercise?

Two forehand topspins from middle into backhand block, switch either corner- continuous, bring serve in half way and introduce a free element also.

Who’s your favourite TT Player and why?

Samsonov – I love the way he uses the table and is so clear about his tactics and placement of the ball around the table, not the most powerful but makes up for that with incredible feel and touch. A great role model for younger players who just want to blast through everything and have no plan B!

What equipment do you use?

Tibhar Stratus Samsonov blade with Evolution MX-P rubbers.

Give a top tip for young players…

Don’t take it too seriously, you must enjoy it first, have fun!

What do you like to do to relax outside TT?

Spending time with friends and family, both in Scotland and in my hometown of Swansea, I enjoy walks along the beach with my wife and daughter. I don’t mind the occasional stag do!


Andrew Rushton

Is currently Head coach for Halton Talent Development Centre and National Coach for the British Para Table Tennis Team!

Read our interview with Andrew

About me:

Andrew Rushton, 34, fiancé Karen, 2 children Jack-5 and Harry-7 months.

What’s your main club(s)?

I play for TTC WIL (current champions) Swiss Superleague.

How long have you been coaching and who was an influence for you to start coaching?

I have been coaching since 2009 and I have many influences including Denis Neale, Bradley Billington and my Father.

What part of coaching do you enjoy most?

I love the pressure of coaching in matches!

What’s your favourite coaching exercise?

Anything to do with service and receive are my favourites…

Who’s your favourite TT Player and why?

Desmond Douglas for the style he played and his approach to the game.

What equipment do you use?

I use a Paul Drinkhall Powerspin Carbon blade with Evolution MX-P black and red rubbers.

Give a top tip for young players…

Make every experience an opportunity to learn 🙂

What do you like to do to relax outside TT!?

Spending time with my family and kickboxing.


Craig Bryant

Top player and coach, Craig brings a huge amount of experience to the table and is currently expanding his professional coaching company – Top Edge Table Tennis.

Read our interview with Craig

About me:

Age 31, with wife Amy, Son Freddie and Daughter Molly.

What’s your main club(s)?

TTC Nodo (nodo.be)

How long have you been coaching and who was an influence for you to start coaching?

I’ve been coaching for around 12 years and it was Tim Manhire (sadly not with us anymore) who got me involved at Crawley Table Tennis Club, helping out at sessions, the odd one to ones, should anyone want them. He was a great character and genuinely wanted to help, which in turn, makes you want to help as well.

What part of coaching do you enjoy most?

I really enjoy one to one training, I see and I think the players see, improvements taking place, quicker. It’s very gratifying to see someone achieve something and to know that you’ve helped them get there. Whether that’s someone getting their first England Cap or someone mastering a certain shot.

What’s your favourite coaching exercise?

Backhand control, blocking anywhere on the table. It’s a tough exercise, specific to match play and you get to see how hard people can work.

Who’s your favourite TT Player and why?

Without doubt, Jan-Ove Waldner. In my opinion, the greatest mind that’s ever played. So creative and effortless. The type of player that proves there is more than one way to win a point.

What equipment do you use?

I use Joola Rhyzm P on both sides on a Joola Fight TPE blade (straight handle).

Give a top tip for young players…

Work harder, as well as smarter. You need to put the hours of effort into your training but as JOW shows us, you don’t always have to be able to hit 20 forehands to win a point. Experiment with different serves, receives and shots in general, as well as the consistency type training.

What do you like to do to relax outside TT?

When TT is your hobby and your job it’s tough to stop thinking about it. When I get the chance, I’m partial to a spot of carp fishing. I also have a very young family, so it’s great to spend downtime with them, in the park, in play centres etc.


Natalie Green

Nat is a former England No 1 and International player, since starting her coaching career, she has held coaching roles with Greenhouse Schools, Table Tennis England and is now working full-time at the Grantham Academy and Charles Read Performance Centre.

What’s your main club(s)?

Coach at Grantham College Table Tennis Academy and Table Tennis Performance Centre at Charles Read School part of the David Ross Education Trust (DRET).

How long have you been coaching and who was an influence for you to start coaching?

I started coaching in 2002 whilst studying at college and have been coaching full time since 2006.

What part of coaching do you enjoy most?

I like being able to pass on my knowledge and experience to the players I work with, it is really rewarding to see when all the hard work pays off and the players get the results they want.

What’s your favourite coaching exercise?

I like setting the players drills that get progressively harder through the exercise so that they never feel too comfortable, that way it is much more realistic to a match play scenario. 2 bh, 2 fh from middle, 2 fh from fh moving into Bh block anywhere on the table is a good one.

Who’s your favourite TT Player and why?

My favourite European player was the Croatian former world number 2 Tamara Boros. She is one of the few European women who could beat the top Chinese, having won a world silver medal in Paris in 2003. She had good serves and a really strong topspin game.

What equipment do you use?

Joola Rhyzm rubbers with a Joola Rossi blade.

Give a top tip for young players…

Work as hard as you can in every session and take as much advice from your coaches that you can – make sure you enjoy it and have fun.

What do you like to do to relax outside TT?

Spend time with my family, and watching all types of sport.

What’s your main club?

JOOLA Plymouth Table Tennis Club.

How long have you been coaching and who was an influence for you to start coaching?

What part of coaching do you enjoy most?

The most enjoyable part of coaching for me is when I manage to deliver good quality session, the players work hard are engaged and enjoy the session!

My favourite coaching exercise is half irregular with one player feeding from BH or FH, the other player plays one from the middle, one anywhere, one middle and one anywhere.

Who’s your favourite TT Player and why?

Favourite Table Tennis player – Jan Ove Waldner, unbelievable feel for ball, innovative shots and very clever player!

Never give up, enjoy, try to practice effectively and don’t waste your time just by being at the session but not giving it everything!

What do you like to do to relax outside TT?

I like being at the beach with the kids, bodyboarding, kayaking or by myself riding my road bike, oh and I love good coffee :-))


Matt Porter

Chairman and lead Coach at Bishop Auckland, Matt has quickly developed the club – winning TTE National Club of the Year in 2016 and was personally awarded TTE Coach of the Year in 2014.

Read our interview with Matt

About me:

Age 31, Step son aged 10 and a dog called Russell.

What’s your main club(s)?

Bishop Auckland TTC.

How long have you been coaching and who was an influence for you to start coaching?

I did my old ETTA level 2 back in 2000 but didn’t really start coaching properly until 2004 after I had finished at Grantham Academy and got even more involved at Cliffedale Chandlers TTC.

My Grandad was a big influence, he really helped shape my coaching philosophy, he wasn’t a great coach by any means but his patience and calm manner was unbelievable, he would spend hours feeding a ball back for new starters just trying to get them to connect with the ball and then hours learning the forehand and so on.

John Mappletoft and Ken Muhr have both helped me massively.

What part of coaching do you enjoy most?

Seeing the development in players, not just seeing them master the new skill or pick up that great win, but also helping them develop as people and using sport to provide new opportunities for them.

What’s your favourite coaching exercise?

Depends on the phase of the programme, I like to try and ‘mix it up’ and keep it fresh for players – even by just adding little twists to my “normal drills”…

Who’s your favourite TT Player and why?

For me has to be Waldner, there was just nothing he couldn’t do and make look easy!

I like watching a lot of the new generation Japanese players – they are doing something right with all the new and exciting young players coming through!

What equipment do you use?

I use a Tibhar Status Carbon blade with Evolution MX-S rubbers on both sides.

Give a top tip for young players…

Think more, focus and apply in practice – some players receive good advice but as soon as it comes to doing the drills those small words of wisdom are completely forgotten!

What do you like to do to relax outside TT?

I like my films, I have a huge collection of DVD’s and I also like Rock music.


Paul Whiting

A very experienced coach and seasoned player, Paul is currently head coach at the Plymouth Talent Development Centre.

Read our interview with Paul

About me:

Married to Debbie with two children Amy and Adam.

What’s your main club(s)?

Joola Plymouth TTC and Head coach at Plymouth Talent Development Centre.

How long have you been coaching and who was an influence for you to start coaching?

28 years. No influence really just started as a practise partner for local juniors before becoming the Plymouth & District league Coach.

What part of coaching do you enjoy most?

I enjoy being at competitions with the players you work with at the club. This gives you the chance to see how they react in pressure situations and look at what areas are strong or need improvement.

What’s your favourite coaching exercise?

I don’t have a favourite drill but like exercises that are relevant to the individual players system of play. Sometimes drills can look pretty but don’t aid development.

Who’s your favourite TT Player and why?

Probably predictable but Waldner because of his ability to play with flair and imagination…

What equipment do you use?

Evolution MX-P rubbers and Paul Drinkhall Carbon blade.

Give a top tip for young players…

Play because YOU love the sport and remember it’s your attitude not your aptitude that decides your final altitude!

What do you like to do to relax outside TT?

Cycling and relaxing with family.


Chris Main

Full time coach and top player, Chris is also development officer at North Ayrshire TTC and Dumfries TTC.

Read our interview with Chris

What’s your main club(s)?

I play for North Ayrshire in Scottish National League Div 1 & British Premier League, I am development officer for North Ayrshire TTC and Dumfries TTC.

How long have you been coaching and who was an influence for you to start coaching?

I have been full time coach for 4 years and I am not sure if one specific person was an influence in why I started coaching. I think I was aware of how much I got out of table tennis and the fun and opportunities I got from it, so I wanted to put time and effort back into table tennis and show others what they can get from it too.

What part of coaching do you enjoy most?

Working with players who have a desire to improve. Having two way conversations on the correct mental and technical aspects of table tennis. I enjoy 1-1 coaching as I can tailor the session perfectly for the player.

What’s your favourite coaching exercise?

Beginners: Shadow Play (work on technique and footwork without the distraction of a ball).

Advanced: Falkenberg exercise (continuous exercise which works on BH topspin, FH topspin, consistency and movement).

Who’s your favourite TT Player and why?

Possibly a boring or common answer, but would have to be Timo Boll for his positive attitude and longevity.

What equipment do you use?

A Joola TPE Fight Blade (Flared handle) and Rhytmz 2.0 Rubbers.

Give a top tip for young players…

Keep working hard and don’t stop believing… ‘Hard work beats talent, when talent doesn’t work hard’.

What do you like to do to relax outside TT?

Aad is an extremely experienced coach, having been a National Coach in the Netherlands, ETTA Regional Coach for players with Disabilities and through to his current coaching at Britannia TTC in Ipswich, Stowmarket TTC and NETTS!

Read our interview with Aad

About me:

Born in 1965 and happily married.

What’s your main club(s)?

Currently I coach at Britannia TTC in Ipswich, Stowmarket TTC and NETTS in Earls Colne, Essex.

During the 2017-18 I hope to run some Suffolk county sessions. In the past I’ve been head coach at Fusion TTC in London, BATTS in Harlow, TTC FvT in Rotterdam, TTV TOGB in Berkel, the Netherlands.

I’ve worked for the ETTA as regional coach for players with disabilities and lead Regional sessions for the A- and B-squad (East).

In the Netherlands I’ve been Regional coach (U13’s) and national coach for different age groups, up to U21’s.

How long have you been coaching and who was an influence for you to start coaching?

I’ve been coaching since about 1989. I wanted to give something back to the club I started playing at when I was about 11 yrs old: TTV Overschie in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. I don’t think there was someone in particular who was a real influence to start off with. As a junior I relied most on the advice of some of the senior players at the club and the exercises we made up ourselves as younger players playing each other.

Soon after starting coaching I went to another club, TTV Korenbeurs in Schiedam, to find out what junior coaching would actually look like…. They asked me to come with them on their October training camp in Lanaken, Belgium to coach there promising U11’s. Basically I was thrown in the deep.

Coaches who’ve influenced me at Korenbeurs over the years were Hans Waterreus, Emma Lingen and Luc Janssen, all in different ways. Although I worked the most with Hans and Luc, I still remember a short conversation I had with Emma. As Emma asked me what I would like to achieve as a coach, I answered after a bit of thinking that I wanted to coach a team to compete at Dutch National Junior level C. This would be a step up from the regional organised leagues, about 6 tiers. She asked me, why not National Junior level A? This left me stunned as I thought that would be far out of my reach. That conversation has always been in my mind and later I realised that was not out of reach at all. I’ve coached boys and girls winning the Dutch National Junior league, the boys being the youngest ever to win it!

Later I was influenced by a number of coaches: Theo Rieken and Achim Sialino, being excellent coach educators and mentors. Segun Toriola, a professional player I had the privilege to work with. Peter Engel, Leszek Kucharski, Christer Johansson and Viorel Filimon, very experienced international coaches. Obviously there were more people, but it would go too far to mention all.

What part of coaching do you enjoy most?

I enjoy the interaction with players. I enjoy finding different ways to improve players. No two players are the same. I enjoy organising the session, who plays who, so everybody will get the most of the session and there is a group atmosphere. There’s always the stigma of table tennis being an individual sport. The sessions I run I try to create a team or club atmosphere where players learn to train together and respect each other. In the end I hope this will help them in their individual matches as well, building up confidence and having the support of other players.

What’s your favourite coaching exercise?

To me it’s not so much what exercise players are executing, but why and how they play a certain exercise. So in that way my favourite exercise would be: make up your own exercise (footwork or service). Asking players to think and make up their own exercise helps me to figure out what they are thinking and gives me the option to reinforce that they’re on the right track, tweak the exercise a bit or point out the weakness of the exercise and helps them set a different exercise altogether.

Of course there are exercises I use quite often, such as the Falkenberg and middle-either corner. Both of them in different variations, tweaked to the individual needs of the players. I also enjoy observing the players I coach in competitions, as this provides me with valuable information about how to move forward. In competitions some players will do better than in training, some will do worse. Ideally there is a strong link between the two: you train how you compete and you compete how you train. For example there is no point in training topspin, when as soon as the match starts you just push…

Who’s your favourite TT Player and why?

My favourite player is Wang Liqin. I regard him as the most complete player in his era and liked his style.

What equipment do you use?

For many years I’ve played with a Tibhar Charly Roesch blade. I still have one or two of them. As a junior I remember playing with Tibhar Spico Speedy spin on my forehand and Tibhar Speedy Soft (Short pimples) on my backhand. Nowadays I’ve got a range of bats I predominantly use for coaching. I’ve got a Tibhar CCA blade with Evolution MX-P on my forehand and EL-P on my backhand. I use this for matchplay and for players to experience a faster blade with faster rubbers. I’ve got also blades with Speedy Soft and Grass Ultra on my backhand to develop players games with or against players with pimples and different playing styles. I use my old Charly Roesch blade with just one rubber (MX-P) for multiball feed.

Give a top tip for young players…

Enjoy your game. Look for improvement. There are so many areas of the game that you can improve that the process never stops and it will always be exciting. The longer it takes you to acquire a certain skill, the more you appreciate it once you’ve mastered it. Don’t let the ranking determine how you feel!

What do you like to do to relax outside TT?

Outside table tennis I enjoy spending time with family and friends. During the holidays I try to get some scuba diving in. I also enjoy reading books. I try to find the right balance between reading for entertainment and for self development.


Paul Johnson

Paul is a full-time professional Table Tennis coach – working at a regional, county and school level and is Head Coach at Blitz TTC.

Read our interview with Paul

What’s your main club(s)?

Redlands TTC (Worksop) and Blitz TTC (Gainsborough).

How long have you been coaching and who was an influence for you to start coaching?

I’ve been coaching professionally full time for the last 4 years, but have been coaching for a total of 9 years. I first started coaching because I wanted to give other people in my local area the opportunity that I never really got, which was access to coaching locally, and I also wanted a new challenge within the sport.

What part of coaching do you enjoy most?

I love the challenge and seeing the look on a players face, when they start to achieve something that they never thought they could achieve. Whether that be something performance related, that we have been working really hard on together, or outcome related, its just really good to see and makes all the hard work worthwhile.

What’s your favourite coaching exercise?

I don’t think I have a favourite exercise. Maybe the players I work with might tell you different.

Who’s your favourite TT Player and why?

Kalinikos Kreanga – I remember watching him play against Samsonov in the World Championships quarter final in Paris, in an epic 7 set match. Was a crazy match and I just remember thinking “I want a backhand like that”. Ever since then I’ve just loved watching him play.

What equipment do you use?

Joola Flame Fast Blade with Rhythm Original on FH and Rhythm 425 on BH.

Give a top tip for young players…

Just enjoy what you do and try to learn as much as possible.

What do you like to do to relax outside TT?

I play cricket at a weekend in the summer when I’ve not got anything else on. I also play Drums, which is great for stress levels and when you’ve had a tough day.

Joanna Lacinska-Piwowar

Jo is the Lead Coach and Secretary at Torbay Table Tennis Academy. She played in the First Women’s League in Poland whilst completing her University Course.

Read our interview with Jo

About me:

Age 35, married to Kris Piwowar with two children, Jakub 9 and Kacper 7 yrs old.

What’s your main club(s)?

I coach all ages and abilities at Torbay Table Tennis Academy, develop Table Tennis at secondary school Torquay Academy and since 2016, I work with the boys and girls first teams at University of Exeter.

How long have you been coaching and who was an influence for you to start coaching?

I started coaching in 2001 whilst studying at University. In 2011 together with my husband we opened Torbay Table Tennis Academy.

No influence really just wanted to coach and help other players to develop their Table Tennis skills.

What part of coaching do you enjoy most?

I like to see how the players develop their skills from the moment they join the club.

Seeing the progress in every player, doesn’t matter what level they started, is very satisfying and shows us that we are doing the job right!

What’s your favourite coaching exercise?

Multi-ball training is my favourite part of coaching. It is a moment of the training session when a player and coach give a 100% commitment and focus.

Multi-ball training is very universal – I use it while coaching 5-8yrs old children, performance players and over 50+ seniors and all groups enjoy it, which is the most important part of coaching.

Who’s your favourite TT Player and why?

It is hard to say one name, as I have never had a player who I wanted to follow. I love to watch games of top players and take little things from each of them.

If I have to give a name it would be Romanian player Danielle Dodean, European Champion, great ability on both wings and mentally a very strong player.

What equipment do you use?

Joola Rhyzm rubbers with a Tibhar Balsa Allround blade.

Give a top tip for young players…

Give 100% of yourself in every session, as only then you will be able to judge the true results of your hard work.

What do you like to do to relax outside TT?

Relax with my family and travel.

Krzysztof Piwowar

Kris is the Lead Coach and Chairman at Torbay Table Tennis Academy. He has played in the first league in Poland and was a National medalist in the youth categories. He also now works as a coach at the Talent Development Centre in Plymouth.

Read our interview with Kris

About me:

35 years old, married to Joanna Lacinska-Piwowar with two children, Jakub 9 and Kacper 7 who both play Table Tennis!

What’s your main club(s)?

Torbay Table Tennis Academy and Talent Development Centre in Plymouth.

How long have you been coaching and who was an influence for you to start coaching?

I have been coaching for around 16 years – I started coaching in 2001 whilst studying at University.

Miao Cang Sheng, who was a well-known coach in China but then became the coach in my club in Poland.

What part of coaching do you enjoy most?

To improve the technical skills of a players game.

What’s your favourite coaching exercise?

Irregular game exercises, because of the uncertainty of the opponents style and tactics, every player should have the capability to adjust their game.

Example: short backspin serve, return long push anywhere, then topspin (Fh/Bh) from the whole table to the backhand until winning the point.

Who’s your favourite TT Player and why?

I follow Jan Ove Waldner, he is phenomenal player with a great game instinct. I also like Greek player Kalinikos Kreanga, he has a very strong and reliable backhand and always takes a risk in his game.

What equipment do you use?

Blade: TIBHAR Curious.

Rubbers: Tibhar MX-P Forehand, and Tibhar FX-P backhand

Give a top tip for young players…

To succeed, everyone has to work hard and put all your efforts into training everyday.

What do you like to do to relax outside TT?

I love to spend my time with family. I also like a good action movie and in the winter I love to ski.

Best wishes, Barry Chapman

Product Reviews!

We would like to ask a small favour – we are always trying to recommend the best and most suitable products to customers and a great way to do this is through reviews on the website.

If you could take a moment to leave a review on a product you recommend, use frequently, or you think is ideal for certain players – this would be a great help!

It’s quick and easy and just a sentence would be perfect…

Bribar Bat Workshops!


Let us know if you would like to host an evening or day of Bat Testing and Trade Stand action near you!

Our ever popular testing evenings are a great opportunity for players, coaches and agents(!) to ‘try before you buy‘ from a wide range of classic rubbers and blades through to the latest new items for the 16-17 season…

We have an extensive bat testing range for players to try out, with numerous different combinations that our knowledgeable staff can help guide players through and discuss options that may suit their game!

If you would like to discuss hosting a bat workshop, we are quite flexible on how it runs locally – we would suggest that the following are essential to make it a successful event:

  • A Table Tennis venue with capacity for lots of play – 6 tables or more is ideal.
  • A good early promotion on a county wide or multi-club basis – we really need a minimum of 50 players to attend over the session.

Other than that, offering refreshments, coaching and social elements to these sessions also works well!

If you are interested please drop us an email or call 01227 860348.

Bribar E-Gift Vouchers

We know lots of people struggle to find the right gifts for Table Tennis Nuts – so when it comes to Birthdays, Christmas and as a ‘Thank you’ – the huge variety of Table Tennis equipment can be baffling.coupon

To this end, the E-Gift Voucher can be purchased just like any other product on the website and emailed direct to the lucky recipient – taking the stress and guess work out of it!

Table Tennis Organisations

We can also provide E-Gift Vouchers to the Table Tennis Community – often Clubs and Leagues like to reward Volunteers or they are used at Events and Competitions as prizes…

If that is something we can help you with, please just drop us an email or call and we can create E-Gift Voucher(s) as required.

Click for more details on the E-Gift Voucher.

Full T’s & C’s can be found in the product description and in the website ‘Conditions of Use‘.

Agent Blade SALE!!

We have brought together a wide selection of our ‘One-off’ blades and ‘Ex Bat Test’ blades so that we can offer these exclusively to Bribar Agents on a ‘first come first served basis’!

As per last season, we have collated them all into one list and they can be ordered via email to ron@bribartt.co.uk or call him to discuss on 01227 860348.

We will look to update the list on a daily basis – these offers were really popular last year so be quick!



As part of our summer stock take we have a number of robots available at serious knock down prices!

We have 3 x Joola Buddy Pro robots @ £50.00 each – ex display. SOLD OUT!

These robots have been tested and they are all in working order but as they are ex display and have been previously used they come without a guarantee.

We also have a selection of surround covers: a few blue, various green in 2.3m and 2.0m lengths, mostly JOOLA but some from other manufacturers. These have been used for tournament hire but may do a good job for a club. FREE to a good home but you will either have to pay for postage or arrange to collect either from our office or a local tournament or bat test event.

For further information on any of the above please contact ron@bribartt.co.uk or give him a call. SOLD OUT!

We also have a range of badminton rackets, plastic shuttlecocks and a few tennis rackets at very reasonable prices. These are suitable for home use, schools, youth clubs etc. If you are interested please contact Sue for further details on sales@bribartt.co.uk.

TIBHAR Aurus Sound Table Tennis Rubber

A great offer on Aurus Sound!

During July we are reducing the price of TIBHAR Aurus Sound rubber for agents to £25.99!

A really popular rubber with our customers see what they have to say…

Was recommended the rubber after talking online and reading reviews. The ratings don’t lie great spin, control and speed. It suits an all-round game but gives plenty of gears for stepping up the attack.

What a rubber! I tried this rubber on my friends blade (Jun Mizutani ZLC OFF) it is the best rubber I have tried such as tenergy 05 tibhar evolution mx-p joola rhythm, Donic Bluefire m1.

Coming soon to the RHYZER range!

We’ve been pleasantly surprised by the new JOOLA RHYZER rubbers!

The RHYZER 48 is a quick beast of a rubber (see our recent blog) and the RHYZER 43 version although not as rapid, still has the thin rubber topsheet and thick pink sponge – giving it plenty of zip too!

Soon to join them is the new Pro 50 version, it’s is likely to be popular with high level players when it arrives in the middle of June… watch this space for specs and price….

Team World Cup – New Products!

We’ve worked hard with TIBHAR to bring you some new products in time for the Team World Cup…

We are delighted with the new Absolute Blade from TIBHAR, it’s got everything an entry level blade should have – great control, not too heavy, a bit of ‘zip’ for attacking shots and paired with some quality rubber – it’s bound to be a best seller!

There’s three new ‘ready to play’ bats using the new Absolute Blade, the FEELROTATE and TOPSPIN bats all with proven rubber combinations – prices start at £32.99 through to £43.99.

The online customer and Agents prices have been changed accordingly, but please remember the increase if your customers are using the actual catalogue.

This price change has been put into effect by Butterfly themselves and wasn’t our decision. Unfortunately we have no control over Butterfly prices.
