I'm 12 years old and I started training table tennis 6 months ago. I learn the forehand and backhand counterhit, my pushes and my forehand topspin. Can I become a table tennis star if I practice 3 times a week.

Hi Nasko,

It is greta that you are training so consistently.  At your age keep focusing on getting the strokes correct.  With time you will improve.  How god you get will depend on how long you keep playing the game and how well you train.

It is possible for you to become a star.

Thank you! I'm happy that you answered me positive because I lost hopefulness of becoming a table tennis star because of my coach. He told me I play very well my strokes, I have got good footwork but I can't use them in a rally. Also in Bulgaria will be very hard for me to beat lots of children on my age cuz they were practising more than me. And also table tennis players in Bulgaria don't earn enough money.
