Rule 2.05.07 states that...

"A player strikes the ball if he touches it in play with his racket, held in the hand, or with his racket hand below the wrist."

This means that all of the following are legal and will constitute a good return.

You can hit the ball with ...

* the rubber on your Table Tennis racket, or

* the edge of your table tennis racket, or

* the handle of your table tennis racket, or

* any part of your racket hand below the wrist, including the fingers of your racket hand

Why do tennis players return the tennis ball back to opponent?

They don't always do it when the balls are changed, but players do change their rackets every couple games. Because they hit so hard, the string tension becomes looser after a couple games. Being pros, everything needs to be exact. That lesser string tension compared to the regular tension could mean one ball being an inch out, instead of being in. So yeah, that's why players change rackets.
