Hello everyone here i'm going to discuss what to think when you are playing, where to concentrate to eliminate and what to do to be a bit better
ok now to my question :
What to think when you are playing ? where to concentrate?
ok now my thoughts of concentration and other things
ok so i made 3 ratings of what player should do
1. Ball , enemy(movement) , enemys racket moves , to watch and see.
2.Where the ball goes, how fast and hard it spins, and where do you want to hit.
3.Your racket(you usualy feel it so it is in third place) and table (well you get use to it so thats why it is last also)
so what i think that to become good you need to master 1 line or to be good at first line
by watch and see i mean that you need to see everything at the same time and do everything , its called automatic movement when you see a move made by enemy you know what to do (your body scans enemy movement then see if you can handle (it doesnt matter) and does it without your thinking.
correct me if i'm wrong ;) its just my thoughts!
Thanks for starting this discussion.
Table Tennis is avery fast game. You really don't have time to make all of those thoughts. As you said it really needs to be an automatic reaction which comes after many hours of repetitive hitting of balls in various situations.
During a game you need to just watch the ball throughout and react to what you see. You don't have time t be able to switch between watching the ball, your opponent etc. By just watching the ball you will pick up the rest with your peripheral vision.
I can't emphasise this enough... Watch the Ball...
