TAJINDER PAL BHULLAR Asked 2 years ago

I play at my local club where we have one close room with mat and another open room with tiles. While changing from one room to other, I have to adjust my strokes. And I play good at both the places.

But when i came to table tennis hall which is very big and have cement floor, my strokes goes out most of the times and my footwork is also very bad there. I don't know what is going wrong there. The tables at different places are very same. But I'm not able to figure out why i have to adjust every time.

Hi Tajinder,

I think a lot of it is perception of speed.  In the smaller rooms the ball feels like it is travelling faster.

Allow yourself a bit of hitting time to adjust to the pace of the ball and the feel of the strokes.

I think it is just a matter of giving yourself more opportunity to play in those conditions.
