Hi PingSkills, 

I have been playing table tennis for a while and I love it. Unfortunately I don't live close enough to a club to join so it's only my brother and my dad that sometimes play with me but my brother doesn't like it as much as I do and my dad is only home in the evenings so I am lacking quality practice that I wish I could have and when I do play I struggle a lot in consistency in all strokes and I sometimes I get frustrated. Is there anything that you can suggest that I can do by myself to help and if slowing down my shots will help my consistency?

Thanks a lot.

Hi Keagan,

Slowing down your shots will help to gain consistency at first.

You could hit the ball up against the wall to develop consistency and control.  You could also bounce the ball up on your bat and see how many of these you can do in a row.

It is a matter of hitting the ball as many times as you can to develop the feel of the contact.

Take a look at our lesson on Practicing Alone which may give you some more tips.
