will help me in grt way..
That is good to know Dawa. Good luck with your training.
Thanks, helps alot
OMG ... so amazing but so difficult 2 .. isn't it ?
It isn't difficult once you practice these skills.
it should B .. i'll try doing them
i like this video.....but...i think it is so hard too.....
Amazing techniques! These will really help me improve in my game!
That is good to hear Basel.
Good one for beginner
We do post bats to all around the world.
You should look for a bat with some sponge under the rubber and a reasonable quality rubber. Let me know what you are looking at and I can let you know if I can.
You could look at the PingSkills Rook which will allow you to spin the ball well. It is also reasonably fast for a first bat and will allow you to play faster shots as well.
Hi Alois, I saw your video of curving the ball. Is the rubber matters to curve the ball?
Is it possible to curve the ball using any low-cost BAT like KUNG-FU BAT?
You do need a reasonable rubber to be able to generate enough spin to curve the ball. I think it would be difficult with the Kung-Fu racket.
A perfect video
nice video.. it made me good in table tennis!!
Very helpful. Particularly if my partner doesnt turn up. But actually for any time just messing about. Thanks
PS didnt see this video because it was tucked away at the bottom of the list
Thanks River, yes we may have to elevate it on the list.
Thank you, Alois. Great ideas for developing good hands and basic concepts. But, how about phisical shape in general, like feet speed, or foot work, body strength and so on. I mean body exercises typically designed for table tennis. I want to demolish my oponents next time we have the chance to play.
Take a look through these Blogs we put up a while ago. Weight Training Specifically for Table Tennis and Strength Conditioning for Table Tennis.
Thanks a lot really help because of this i won my first match.
Well done Joshhua. Good to hear.
I am surprised as was doing table and wall technique even before watching this video somehow. And I even cut a piece of sponge about the height of TT net and lean it on wall. So when it hit's the net the ball won't comeback and is a bad shot.
The spin technique and pancake technique I find amazing.Thanks a lot for the share
No problems Ganesh. Great to hear you are practicing.
One question Alois, what is the ideal distance to stand from Table in matches. Because at times I seem to be cramped for room when I am making shot. So I went back a little and making some slice returns but then the problem is when the ball kisses net I completely miss the ball.
Please suggest how far should I stand from table to cover for most of the shots made by my opponent.
One more thing is when the ball comes at my stomach I cannot find much room to hit a forehand/backhand, and in such situations can u suggest me what shot should I make to atleast make the ball over net please.
When you are in the ready position with your legs bent and crouched down, you should be just able to touch the end of the table. This is a good guide. Of course each player will be slightly different but this is a good place to start.
When the ball gets you in the middle this is called your cross over point. This is difficult for a lot of players. I think the backhand is probably an easier shot to adapt to when you are caught quickly. Just make a block and get the ball back onto the table and then try to work yourself back into the point. However, if you can move to the forehand position it is the better option usually, especially if you have a stronger forehand.
Thanks a lot I will implement them in my practice and hope I get through the selections at my office.
I was wondering if you could help me with something, when I practice alone I fold one side of my table up and practice against that, but when I try to practice topspin, none of my hits land on my side of the table.
Yes, this is a problem of hitting the ball against a table. Try to soften the contact a little if you want to get more repetitive practice.
Truly good video.
