Discover the REAL Problem

 
 
 
 
Wang:  Hey Bob, how are you doing this tournament?
 
Bob:  This is the worst I have ever played!  I haven’t touched a racket for two weeks then on my first match that long-pips guys messed up my stroke and now I don’t know what to do.
 
Wang:  Well, let’s practice.
 
After the practice…
 
Wang:  Yeah, you aren’t on top of your game.
 
Bob:  My strokes are terrible, I’m just not looping the ball like I used to.

Why Table Tennis?

Hi Friends,

Daily Practice

Are you practicing all areas of your game?

 
 
Hi Readers!  I hope you are staying safe in the difficult time!  What have you been practicing at home???  Are you neglecting some areas of your game.  I have been suggesting things for my students to work on.  Below is an e-mail that I sent today of a list of 15 things that need regular practice.  You should print off the list for yourself and see if you can improve each of these 15 things each week.  Check out the list below...
 
 
 
 
Dear Student,

More Practice vs Less Practice

Read about a strange phenomenon

Sometimes players will work very hard over the summer training many hours each day.  At the end of the summer, they play a tournament and are very disappointed with their results.  They might have spent thousands of dollars traveling to China, hiring pro coaches, and giving great effort…  but still they didn’t have the expected results.
 
Yet other times, players will take a break for a few weeks and practice very little.  Without expecting much from their first tournament of the season, these players are sometimes surprised with amazing results!
