Bible Verse of the Week

John 3:16-17

John 3:16-17
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whoever believes on Him should not perish but have everlasting life.  For God sent not His Son to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through Him.


Find the solution...

I have received this particular question from over 50 of my followers.  I decided that it was time to answer it.  This week, Luis Sergio Chavez wrote, “It would be great if you could cover also the mental strength aspects or techniques to mentally recover from 0-4 where you are the one who made 4 mistakes in a row.  I would love to learn from your experience and knowledge on how to get back on track.”

20 Different Opponents!

This year, become a tactical tournament player!

Playing the right tactics is one of the vital keys to winning your next match.  In order to know which tactics to play, it is often helpful to label your opponent as a looper, chopper, lobber, blocker, etc.  Once you have placed him in a category, then you can begin making a game-plan.  (please realize that many playing styles overlap)

Joe Newgarden 1929-2017

You will be missed...

Mr. Newgarden was more than a sponsor to me, he was a friend, an encourager, a mentor.  And not just to me, but to the entire table tennis community.  His dream of building a simple, reliable, easy-to-use robot came true with his first invention and continued as he developed more and more robots…  1929, then 2000, then 2040, then 2050, and now 3050.  Before his death, he was able to see his dream come true…  a human-like robot and was so simple to use that a 1st grader could program it.

Learn 7 Main Keys

Playing against a wheelchair player requires a specific strategy.  First, you must begin the match with a fighting spirit.  If you start the match feeling sorry for your opponent, you probably won’t give your best.  Determine in your mind prior to the start of the match that you will give your very best and not worry about the sympathy factors.
