Hi PingSkills

There's a coach said that multi ball is only useful for beginners and useless for pros

He said that it's better to practice with only one ball.

What do you think about it? If it's useful, how much frequency should I practice with multi ball?

Hi Frendy,

The top Chinese players utilise multi-ball for their training.

As a generalisation, I think 25% of your training can be made up of multi-ball drills.

So how much training should I have with multi-ball?

And what should I focus when training with it?

About 25% of you training.  You can focus on the things you are focusing on in general with your training.

It's amazing how coaches can make random claims like this.

Hi friends, 

I think Multiball is useful for ingraining a particular stroke, say forehand loops. There are also Footwork drills and Placement Drills to improve these areas. I use more than 30% Multiball training for my players and in my practice, too. From experience, I get to know that it is more useful after you advance in your level.
