Drop Proof, Ping Pong Racket

Updated on July 6, 2015

Table Tennis

Introduction

Ping-Pong, or Table Tennis is a sport in which two or four players hit a lightweight, hollow ball back and forth using pin pong rackets. This game is much similar to tennis only in a much smaller scale. The game takes place on a hard table divided by a net.Players must allow a ball played toward them only one bounce on their side of the table and must return it so that it bounces on the opposite side. Points are scored when a player fails to return the ball.

Arriving at a Problem and an Idea

I learned Ping Pong at work. As as with every one I learned from watching, researching, and being thought by the best. I am not a very physical person and tire easily, so I would say I was just the average Ping Pong player.

In the heat of the game, Ping Pong rackets are often dropped or thrown. I watched players including me who has done this by accident. This often results to the Ping Pong racket being damaged or someone being hurt as a result of a Ping pong racket being thrown.


First Idea Ping Pong Racket plus Mobile Phone Rope

My first idea was combining a Ping Pong racket and a mobile phone rope. However there are two types of holding a ping pong racket. The shake hand grip and the pen hold grip. This idea would work effectively using a shake hand grip. However, there might be some problems stopping the ping pong racket from dropping if you are playing ping pong using the pen hold grip.

Final Design and Idea

Now, I don't know if this idea is already existing. I have browsed through the internet and I have not seen one. I also do not think that professional players would prefer having something like this attached to their wrist. This is just a product idea or a concept. I have thought of it and am sure that it will work.

The general idea is to have a wrist band of some sort attached to your wrist and a rope connecting to the handle of the Ping Pong racket. This will prevent the Ping Pong racket from being thrown or dropped either using a shake hand grip or a pen hand grip.
