Those in Penang can try looking for HyperTT. Not sure if it’s still opened though.

Me me me, I fixed one (ready made, own by a tt association) and built 2 return boards, one with rubber and another one without rubber. Return board with rubber, the returned ball is like normal, topspin (assume you loop the ball towards the return board). Return board without rubber, just plain board, the returned ball will be opposite, it becomes downspin. I prefer the one without rubber because I can loop more and make stronger topspin (not too much until it bounce off the table). With moderate loop, you can train your control and placing as well as footwork.

I'll try to search for my images and upload here in a while.

Thank you.

This is the return board that I fixed on the joint part:

I'm not allowed to post too many images in a reply. So I have to add some on another post.

Thanks for the sharing, that's awesome! I'll try out a bare return board without rubber attached to it.

In the images, the one with stand and wheel is actually easier to get a suitable angle and distance, but portability is not that good. The one clipped on the sides of the tt table is more on portability and can fold for easier storage. For bare board, remember to use thicker board instead of thinner clipper wood because there is no rubber to bounce back the ball. My board is from a DIY rack I bought from Jusco long time ago. Reuse to give it a second life. rclxm9.gif
I'm not sure whether is it still available or not now. If you need any suggestion on the plan and built, we can share our discussion and information here.

I've figured out a simple solution on the return board, just need 2 pieces of wood and a TV wall mount bracket will do the trick, enjoy!

Great idea. I would like to try similar. Can you make a different post about your instruments?
