The new ITTF rule allows for coaching during the match. There are 3 basic types – encouragement, informative, and secretive.
For the most part, encouragement like “Come on” “This point” “Good shot” “Keep fighting” these were usually allowed under the old rule. It is good for coaches to continue encouraging the players. The type and amount of encouragement will differ greatly from player to player.

In table tennis training, there are times when multiball training is absolutely necessary and there are times when it is over-used. In this short article, I’m going to give you some advice on when to use it or when not use it.
Simplifying for Beginners
For complete beginners who have never played before, sometimes using a robot or multiball is easier because it allows more time between balls. As soon as the beginner is able to make contact with the ball, I highly recommending transitioning to single ball instead of multi-ball.
Congrats to Sarah Jalli for being the first table tennis athlete to get "Athlete of the Month" at NST Sports Performance. In addition to private lesson, club play, league play, tournaments, robot practice, and fitness at home, Sarah also trains regularly at NST. Keep up the good work! https://www.instagram.com/p/BXoaI5rD-ZF/?taken-by=nstsportsperformance
Typically, playing about 60-65% forehand and about 35-40% backhand will allow you to cover the table best. However, for some of my students, I give some flexibility as each player/style/age/conditioning/body type is unique. Because the forehand zone is larger, most players practice forehand footwork or full-table footwork. I have rarely seen players practicing backhand footwork.
