The current list authorised racket coverings by ITTF.

Here you can find the valid and current approved table tennis racket coverings by ITTF. Check easily if the coverings of your opponent are allowed. Just enter the name in the search field and check if it's a valid one.

If you do not have an internet connection use the PDFs in the app, they can be used offline. With the magnifying glass you are able to search specific brands or coverings through the PDF. If they are not on the lists, your opponent does not play approved racket coverings.


Please note that in principle

Newly released racked coverings are allowed (national and international) from the date of publication.

Racked coverings on an expiring list (31. December) are nationally approved until the following year (30. July).


The new rubbers appear in bold italics, whilst other changes appear in bold, and both are valid with immediate effect.

Many racket coverings contain additional text in the rubber mould apart from the brand name and suppliers name and this does not disqualify them from the LARC. However, the brand name given in the LARC must be there (for example, Butterfly Sriver L and Butterfly Sriver S have the addition “D13”). Such texts could be positioned anywhere in the area reserved for the text on the rubber.

How to acknowledge a racket covering from LARC:

1. Make certain that you have the correct LARC (see date of validity, it is published twice a year, in April and October.

2. The supplier and brand names as well as the ITTF logo and eventually ITTF number should be clearly visible on the rubber.

3. These names should appear in the LARC. If in doubt, check the images/pictures on the ITTF web site.



[R] or [B] Indicates that this brand name is available in only red or black respectively.

“Long” Under `Pimple Type’, this is used where the aspect ratio (= pimple height / pimple diameter) is larger than 0.89.

01) Supplier number, may appear in the rubber mould together with the ITTF logo.
