I wanted to ask about the fitness level required for top level table tennis. I read somewhere that the top level international table tennis players are as fit as the top level soccer players. Is that true? I was also hearing an interview of Timo Boll (from 2-3 years back), he said that now he trains for 2-3 hours each day playing table tennis and spends more time in the gym.
Each sport has their own types of fitness that is required. Table Tennis players are very fit in the specific areas that they require. They are very fast and strong especially with their fast movements in the sideway motion.
Table Tennis requires all the areas of fitness to be successful. Strength, Speed, Power, Flexibility and Endurance.
