I've been playing Table tennis for around a year now, and i've switched to a custom made bat 2 months ago. I'm doing fine, normally, but some days, I just seem to be out of control. ie. i cant get my top spins where i want them to, i cant get blocks on the table and they seem to hover across the table. Some of my days are so bad that i end up losing against someone whom i'd never lose to, normally. This day happened to be a tournament day, sadly, and i lost badly. i wanted to know if i can get a good practice to start the day with to avoid this "bad day".
I don't think there is a perfect way to ensure you escape the "bad day" but there are a few things that you can do to try to minimise them.
Firstly, prepare well before the day. Make sure that you are thinking about the matches or game that you will be playing. Then on the day give yourself plenty of time to prepare. Get there as early as you can and do s good warm up both physically and on the table.
Then during your training or matches focus on playing better rather than on results.
