New TT Ball approved

The world governing body, ITTF, has conducted strict testing on the new ball (same dimensions but lighter to current one) and is starting to approved different brands as they meet the requirements.

The new "poly" ball (seamless) will be in use as of July this year 2014 at International Tournaments meaning Australia should follow suit commencing 2015.  

It is expected Clubs will slowly phase out the current ball over a period of time.
