Hello coaches,

How to regain motivation and get back in form after a gap of say 2 months?

Hi Naveed,

The main thing is that you need to get back to hitting regularly and enjoying the game.  Then the motivation will come.

Frendy Halim: 

I can understand u as I too have gone through such a situation, this is how I tackle it:

1. I tell myself that I am playing this game because I enjoy it, so just play ur best and enjoy ur time at the table. 

2. I realize that I have a passion for Table Tennis and I am dedicated to the master the game. So I am just competing with myself to get better and better with each game. I look at my negatives as learning opportunities. Be a good student. 

3. u play each ball according to its merit. If it deserves to be attacked, attack, if u feel u will have an advantage if u push or do a tricky placement, do it. If u are not consistent with attacking shots, just practice them a lot. Practice makes a man perfect!
