The reason behind the switch to the plastic ball is two-fold. Initially, the reason given was that celluloid is increasingly becoming difficult and expensive to obtain, due to dangers in production and increasing regulatory restrictions. However, ITTF president Adham Sharara revealed in an interview in February 2014 that another purpose was to slow down the game. The 40+ plastic polly ball is fractionally larger, 40mm + as opposed to 40mm minus with the old ball. Also the surface of the new ball is slightly smoother, resulting in less spin produced.
