Is being tall a bad thing or a good thing for table tennis? I am about 6'5 and i was wondering it that is too tall?

Hi Evan,

One of the great things about Table Tennis is that there have been high world class players who have been very short and others that have been very tall.  Zoran Kalinic of the former Yugoslavia was also 6'5" and won World championships medals.

You have an advantage of reach but may find it more difficult to get the ball in the middle area.  Each body type has advantages and disadvantages.
