I have been playing table tennis since I was 4 years old, but i never had anybody to teach me. So I had learnt to play the wrong way.

My footwork is really bad and even though I am 6ft2in tall it makes the game difficult for me, I would like to ask if it would be possible to correct this and HOW?

Hi Chris,

Footwork is vital and getting the correct movement is important.  Take a look at the lesson on Footwork Basics.  This will show you the correct movement.  Then it is a matter of practicing this repetitively.  You can do this by doing footwork drills.  You can find these in our Free Downloads page.  Take a look at the Training Drills we have there.  Choose some simple drills from the 2 ball drills first and then progress to the 3 and 4 balls drills.  It will take time but it is a worthwhile thing to practice.
