My name is Karim from Yemen I would like to thank you for the effort that ye do also for your reading the messages and answer what we are looking for .. I play the left hand and I have a problem with how to return the short center server where I retrieved sometimes backhand and sometimes forehand my question is when i returned in backhand and when i returned in forehand?
I live in the country where it does not have many table tennis players and also does not have clubs, but sometimes I find a chance to play with people from the team, but not always My question is how to keep my level or more in my case?
I Play every day bodybuilder for an hour and swimming .. And then table tennis Is this good or not and is there are certain exercises in bodybuilding to help the table tennis?

I think in general it is better to return the centre ball with your forehand or your stronger stroke. If the ball strays long then if you are ready on your forehand side, you will be ready to attack.
Without regular practice, it is difficult to keep your level. We have a lesson on Practicing Alone. This will show you some ideas of what to do when you can't find a practice partner. A lot of these things are basic but something there may be useful.
It is good to do some physical training as well. Take a look at our blog on Weight Training Specifically for Table Tennis and Strength Conditioning for Table Tennis. This will give you some more ideas of what to do.
