What makes a good table tennis player?

Hi Callum,

There are many factors but I think the most important one is how well and how much they train.  It is almost impossible to reach the top level if you haven't spent at least 10 years training regularly.

This will come from having a passion for the game.  So with out this passion you will not spend the time training. In general it is better to start at a young age when it is easier to learn new skills.

Does anyone have any other opinions about the critical factors?

Training = 99%

Talent    =  1%

So to be a "GOOD" player training will get you there.

To be a "GREAT" player (ie world class) you need to train & select your parents carefully.
