Is there an expiry date on table tennis rubbers?

Table tennis rubbers do not have any expiry date on them but they deteriorate with age, so you'll need to replace them at regular intervals. Dust particles penetrate the rubber causing it to lose its tackiness. And exposure to heat, light and air also causes the rubber to deteriorate. Professional table tennis players change their rubber extremely frequently - some players change them every day - but they don't have to buy them! You'll need to change your rubbers when they start to lose their tackiness.
