Book Review By Richard McAfee
 
How many times have you had a friend ask, “why do you play Table Tennis”? Ever

When this happens to me, I normally rack my brain to come up with a few
answers knowing that I am leaving out so much of the greatness of our sport.
Finally, there is now a short easy reading book that has captured the many

Book Testimonial - By Angela Guan (US National Team Member)
 
This is such an excellent book and such a fun read whether you're new to table tennis, have played your whole life, or anywhere in between. It is catered to a wide range of audiences and filled with so many fun facts, personal testimonials, cool statistics, and advice. Why Table Tennis has reminded me of how much I love table tennis and how thankful I am for how it has and continues to shape me into who I am.

Learn How to Beat This Opponent!

 
 
 
 
 
In competitive sports, there are always athletes who want to win so badly, that they will do absolutely anything to accomplish that goal.  Yes, there are cheaters in table tennis too.  Instead of giving you dozens of examples of how cheaters get away with it, I’m going to give you a more general perspective on how you can properly handle any situation that arises.
 

The Missing Key in Table Tennis Footwork

USATT Article and Video!!!

 
     Most club players are unable to excel in table tennis because of their poor footwork.  Many players blame their beer belly or their age or their footwear or their training partners.  However, the aspect of footwork that I will be describing in this short article is an aspect that every player can improve upon, regardless of their age, rating, or physical condition.  Today, I want to show you the importance of anticipation as it relates to footwork in table tennis.  There are three elements that I want you to remember.

Success

Quiz Yourself on the 12 Aspects of Mental Success!

 
 
 
 
The ITTF Advanced Training Manual lists 12 elements to mental success in table tennis.  Quiz yourself to see how well you are doing on each aspect.  Take 2-3 minutes to ponder each point.  Ask yourself how well you are doing on each point during important tournament matches.  If you aren’t doing well, ask yourself how to improve that aspect. 
 
1. Physical relaxation – muscular tension is closely connected to miserable performance.  On the other hand, feelings of relaxation are associated with top performances.
