Hi there coach, I would just like to ask if are there any adjustments needed when playing in a different country with different climate? for example, I play table tennis in the Philippines, wherein the weather is tropical. And I will fly to China and play table tennis there, where the weather in China is 4 seasons. Is there any adjustment needed? same with going back to the Philippines from China to play table tennis, would it also affect my strokes? thanks in advance.

Hi Wayne,

It won't effect things much.  The only thing that will be effected is if the conditions are humid and the bat becomes slippery.  This is more likely to happen in the Philippines where the weather is more humid.

So are there any adjustment needed? do I have to adjust some of my strokes?

No you just need to make sure you keep your bat dry.  If there is any moisture on the bat the ball won't grip and it will drop off your bat.
