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.
