This week we talk about training plans. We've created a new training plan for beginners or those wishing to teach beginners. This is a good stepping stone to our 52 week training plan, which we answer a question about during the show. Plus we have all the regular segments so sit back and enjoy!

Improving your return of the short ball
Matthew: I have been training for about a month now and I have learnt the forehand counterhit, the backhand counterhit, the backhand push, the forehand push and the forehand topspin against block. I can do around 100 of these usually. I am thinking about becoming a premium member and using the 52 week training plan. Do you think I am ready to start using the plan? How many times should I try to practice a week? If I do become a premium member, after the 52 weeks should I repeat the plan or do something else?
Felix: Sometimes my opponent serves fast and long towards me. The ball always goes into the net. What can I do to deal with this kind of serves?
Owen: How do you recommend practicing the pendulum serve and what spin is generally the most effective for it?
Ili: I'd love to know, will be any problems if we play table tennis on one table (2-3 feet long) as we are short of space.
