This review is from: Champion Sports 4STAR Tournament Table Tennis Ball, 40mm, White (Sports) The ITTA is the Irish Table Tennis Association. The ITTF is the International Table Tennis Federation. The latter is the one who makes the official ruling on ball quality. Per the ITTF, 3-star is the top tier ball. These “4-star” balls feel much more like 2-star balls in their performance. Would not recommend for the serious player. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply 2 of 2 people found the following review helpful Meh., August 6, 2014 By Marney White – Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
