Everyone knows that they need to practice in order to make progress.  But what?  Specifically what should they be practicing in order to get to the next level?  This is what we will be dealing with during the camp as each of the participants trains 5-6 hours per day plus optional fitness training plus optional lectures.  Each of the expert coaches/trainers at the camp will help you personalize the drills and training routines to meet your needs and help you establish a training routine to use throughout the year.

Translator

Learn to understand what he means...

 
 
After attending many table tennis tournaments, you will learn to properly interpret what is said after matches.  For example,
 
If someone says… “I lost in the fifth”  
He means…  “I lost badly in the fifth.” (If it was close, he would have told you the score)
 
If someone says…  “I just couldn’t win the close games.”
He means…  “I lost 3-0.”
 
If someone says…  “I just couldn’t return his serves.”
He means… “I lost 3-0 and wasn’t close in any of the games.”
 

Importance of Spin!

Learn to Boost Your Level With Mega Spin

 
Producing more spin is important for several reasons…
 
1. More spin will give you more ball control when pushing allowing you to keep your pushes shorter and sharper.
2. More spin will allow you to hit stronger loops even from a lower position.
3. More spin will allow you to hit more consistent smashes against a variety of lobbing types.
4. More spin will allow you to widen the court with angled curving serves, pushes, lobs, and loops.
5. More spin will allow you to more easily trick your opponent with varying the type and amount of spin.
