Hi Peter,

That is great.  We are thinking about school teachers here as well so glad it is on the mark.

Hi Alois,

I started playing table tennis using penhold grip and i feel comfortable holding the racket that way, but i feel my control is limited. How to develop my control with such grip? or should i train my control using shakehand grip instead?

Hi Qayum,

I think you should persevere with the Penhold grip.  You can do the strokes slowly making sure you have the technique correct.  If you can do this slowly your control will develop.
