Can you tell me if it's a good idea to practice strokes by using this kind of return board as in my video?

Hi Peter,

This looks like a simple return board.  There are others that have rubber stuck onto them to make the return a little more lifelike. 

If there is no other option for hitting this is a good way to increase your coordination and control.  I remember spending hours hitting the ball against the wall when I was very young.  This is a step up from that.

I think that You didn't see the video I was hoping You would see. Here below I give You link to this video. Please tell me what do You think of it. I don't have money to buy a rubber that big, but I think in this way I can also make some progress in both forhand and backhand. It depends where I put the board. Thank You for Your tips and I feel glad to hearing from You.

Can I use a sheet of car tires inner rubber?

Even if there are cheap rubbers out there, it's really hard to find it. Most of them are pre-assambled

You could try that Kevin.

Okay!

I will try it! By the way, why don't you add this method to "practicing alone" lesson?

I have ever use return board that made of gypsum, next time I will find a wooden board and stick the tires rubber to it!

I had some problem about adjusting the right angle, I have to hit the ball strongly or with a plenty of topspin to make the ball falls back to my court. Have an idea?

Do a search in the Ask the Coach section on “Return Board” for more info.

You can get table tennis rubber in bulk (10 pieces) for under $3/sheet from eacheng.net.  Look in the Bargains section.

Sorry but I'm not allowed to do online shopping

@alois, I don't find any of it talking about the angle. But I have found that the appropriate angle for me is just about 5 degrees downwards
