Rubbers - how often should you change them??
It is important to know how often we should replace our rubbers. Using the same rubbers for too long will inevitably lead to a decrease from your normal playing standard. Equally, changing them too often will be an expensive exercise! It's about trying to find the right balance.
As an approximate guide, a rubber last roughly 60 hours. Therefore, if you play for a couple of hours every day, then you will probably be changing your rubbers on a monthly basis. If you play twice a week for a couple of hours, then four months is about right. Ultimately the choice is yours.
In order to maximise the life and performance of your rubber, it should be cleaned after every session and covered with a clean plastic protective sheet.

Long pimpled rubbers can last 100 - 150 hours. Consider replacing your rubbers when the pimples begin to break or wear down or the sponge degrades, leading to inconsistent return of the ball.
A rubber at its prime is crucial to your game. Follow the simple tips to make sure you are maximising your performance. Good luck!
