How important is it to practise training a state of relaxed focus in Table Tennis and what do you consider are the critical areas to pay attention to? For example, in tennis we train tracking the ball, balance, solid contact, etc. What do you consider are the critical variables to train in TT?

Many thanks,

Hi Andy,

It is crucial to practice this during your training sessions.

Tracking the ball is a key way to start to implement this.  Other things that you can focus on are your pre point routine and rhythm between points.

The section on Sports Psychology on the site is a good starter.
