Between Points

Learn about the most under-developed part of table tennis

The average match in table tennis takes about 20 minutes.  Out of the 20 min, about 5 min total is spent on rallies.  The other 15 minutes is spent picking up the ball, preparing for the serve, taking towel breaks, taking timeouts, and getting coaching advice.  So, here is the question that I would like for you to consider…

3:1 Principle

Learn to evaluate your training sessions!

3:1 Principle
Inconsistency is likely the main reason for your poor performance in tournaments.  Will doing more drills help you?  Possibly.
Here at the Samson Dubina Table Tennis Academy, we aren’t just concerned with the number of hours, we are also concerned about the quality of the hours realizing that each individual player might need to adjust his/her drills slightly.  In this article, I’m going to briefly outline the 3:1 principle that we have developed.
