Posted on by TableTennisNation

What was the coolest, most interesting, and most talked about in the ping pong world during 2014? We’ve got you covered with the Best of 2014 featuring everything you need to know from the year in table tennis. Results are based on interactions on facebook and twitter and debates at Table Tennis Nation headquarters. Brought to you by PaddleYou’s game improving customizable ping pong paddles.

Since we opened up the PaddleYou design tool to the public in 2013, we’ve seen thousands of ping pong paddle designs (you can check out many of them in PaddleYou’s gallery, the largest collection of custom ping pong paddles in the world) and while some of them are very mediocre, some of them are amazing. Get inspired then design your own at the bottom of this page or on PaddleYou (and don’t forget to add it to the gallery).
