I'm extremely fearful during my table tennis tournaments. I actually play like an average player while practicing or playing for fun, but during tournaments I lose the match like as if I am a noob in table tennis. I get defeated by like 5+ points. How to overcome this fear?
The main thing is to think about your purpose for playing the matches. If you are totally focused on winning the game and the result then it is easy to become fearful. If you go out there and think about playing well then you can focus on your own performance which is what you tend to do during practice.
During a match you will start to think about the score as well. Try to develop some pre point routines to occupy the mind.
