Hello Pingskills,

I have never really played table tennis before however recently I bought a table after deciding to start playing. I have really enjoyed it so far but I would like to improve. I have watched some of your videos and am thinking about getting a premium membership and following your 52 week plan. However, I have a few questions:

Can I start the 52 week plan straight away or should I practice a bit first and if so what and for how long?

I am thinking about buying the Pingskills Rook so how long should I use that for before getting a custom bat?

Thank you very much for your time. I hope I am not too much of a pain.

From Matthew

Hi Matthew,

I am glad that you are getting into the game.  I am sure you will love it.

I think you can start with our strokes and technique lessons for a month or two.  Then think about starting the 52 week training plan.

As far as a racket, the Rook will last you for at least a year, depending on your progress.  It is a good racket for learning the strokes and developing your basic game.
