Outdoor composite bats or traditional wooden bats?

In selecting a table tennis bat, you need to consider the balance between speed, spin and control.

It is important to choose a bat that matches your playing ability in order to enjoy the game to the full. If you are an inexperienced player, a bat which has too much speed and spin will hinder your game whilst more experienced players seek maximum spin and speed with less need for control.
