Hello Alois,

I'm a hungarian student in a secondary school, and i have a question about practising ping pong.

I love table tennis, and I think i play quite good,( but only as a hobby) and last time i finished a table tennis competition in the fourth place. I have a good bat, but I don't have a table, so I can only play ping pong in the school at the breaks between the lessons. 

My problem is that i always do coarse mistakes( hitting over the ball, hitting the ball out of the table). I would like to be more accurate and faster.

Unfortunately, I do not have enough money to pay for lessons with a coach and for your premium lessons. 

 So my question is all of these, how can i practise without a coach(and money) to be better?

Thanks in advance, 

Roland Visnyei.

Hi Roland,

You can do a lot of improving by just getting on the table and doing some consistent hitting.  In those breaks, try to get a partner to hit some consistent rallies, aiming for 100 balls in a row, then more. Take a look through our Free Video Lessons and try to learn as much as you can from there as well.  There is a lot of information that you can go through.  

It is aways nicer to have a personal coach, but you can still reach a high level without one.

Thanks Alois,

i will give it a try. I already downloaded your free lessons, what I know I learnt from those. If I notice any change, i will write.

Thanks again,

Hello Alois, today we reached 38 hits in a row. And I tried to pay attention to the movement of my hits, and sometimes i hit the ball as accurate as I never, and my mate didn't reach it. I continue practice.
