Inconsistent blocking

Table Tennis Strokes and Technique

Last updated 4 months ago


JOYOTOSH DEY Asked 4 months ago

My blocking is very slow and loopy.  It is very inconsistent as well.  I was always very good and confident on blocking, but ever since I changed my racket about an year back my blocking has become very inconsistent, slow and loopy.  I am using Yasaka Mark-V 2.0 on FH and 1.8 on BH on Stiga ARC blade.  Please help me if I need to improvise my technique or the rubber-blade combination is not right.  I am basically an all round player with good FH and BH topspin close to table and at mid distances.

Hi Joyotosh,

If the block is getting loopy, think about a flatter contact and pushing through the ball more on contact.  This should give the ball a more direct path.
