Hi Alois ! I recently noticed that I am not playing as well as I could because I put a lot of pressure on myself. How can I stop putting pressure on myself ? Thank you!

Hi Yoan,

Think about focusing on the process of each point and playing better Table Tennis rather than the result.  Also take a look through the lessons we have in our Sports Psychology section.

Take a bit of time out and do some relaxing breathing.  Focus on the tactics you want to use during the match is a good way to spend the few minutes before a match.  Also make sure you are really well warmed up.  This often helps to get rid of some of the nerves.
