Hi guys,

 Whilst watching your videos, I haven't found any on footwork, or any training exercises / drills off the table. I was wondering if you could perhaps post a video on your channel about this? I'd be very grateful. I bought up this topic as my footwork is the only thing I really need to improve on to become a better player as I a good technical & tactical ability in the game. I do a lot of training at my club practising all the various shots, using the robot, moving around the table etc. I really need to improve my footwork to improve my game, and was curious as to whether or not you had any ideas how I can enchance this part of my game whilst not at a table tennis table. We use the "agility ladder" at our club, but that's at a weekly session that's only on for four weeks, two of which have already passed.

I hope you have a solution, thanks in advance.

Hi Luke,

Firstly tsake a look at the lesson on Footwork Basics.  This will show you the correct movements.

Then it is a matter of doing a lot of footwork drills during your training session.  We have a whole list of training drills that you can do.  Take a look at our free download on Training Drills.  This will give you a whole lot of drills that you can do.  Start with the simple drills and move up to the more complex random drills.

These are explained well in our Training Secrets Revealed DVD which you should try to purchase. It will help with your training as well. 

YOu can also improve your footwork off the table by doing a lot of agility drills. This is something that we will try to put together for you.
