Hi Alois/Jeff I am 13 years old and have just started to play as a reserve for div 5 pennant in Canberra and I also play at home. Table tennis is my second sport and Tennis is my First. I play with a two- handed backhand in Tennis and I was wondering if you are to play competition with a two-handed backhand.
kind regards Toby
Jeff will be really pleased to hear that you are playing in Canberra where he started his career.
You are allowed to play with a two handed backhand but it is not advisable. You will find it is too slow and you don't need the power from your other arm in Table Tennis.
Good luck with your improvement.

It's great to hear you've started playing table tennis in Canberra. As Alois mentioned that is where I grew up and the first table tennis club I ever went to. It is a great club so enjoy your time there.
Good luck in div 5!
