Out of SYNC

Out-of-Sync
 
After not playing for a few weeks, you might feel a bit sluggish or out-of-sync with your game.  In this article, I want to explain why and give a few helpful tips that you can use to quickly restore and build your playing-level!  When you don’t play at all, these are the first three things that you usually lose…    timing, footwork, and serve return.
 
Timing

Breathe Man, Breathe!

NEW Coaching Article

 
 
 
 
Breathe Man, Breathe!
 
Breathing both BETWEEN points and DURING the point is a very important, and often neglected, aspect of the game!  Players who have learned to properly exhale at contact improve their timing, power, mental focus, and endurance.
 
So how do you test it?
 
Just warmup forehand to forehand.  Is it natural for you to exhale with each hit?  If it feels unnatural, you probably haven’t been doing it!  Now play some points, ask a spectator to stand close and listen for the exhale and watch your chest. 

Kids

Learn 5 reasons why your son or daughter should start playing table tennis...

   
 
 
 
     Kids love table tennis.  Even starting as young as five years old, kids love the excitement.  Many parents don’t see the benefit.  They must realize that table tennis training develops character.

More Spin

More Spin
 
What is the main difference between ping pong and table tennis?
 
The main difference is the amount of spin produced.  With the right strokes and modern equipment, an elite table tennis player can produce 8000 rpms.  With a purple ping pong paddle from Wal-Mart, your Uncle Bill probably can’t produce any spin.

The Tactical Mindset

Post-Tournament Analysis

 
 
 
 
 
 
     Just like any other table tennis skills, developing a tactical mindset takes discipline.  As I work through the various styles over the coming weeks and teach you how to play against various opponents, I want you to understand that you too can think of your own tactics.  I’m not very smart, I’m just an average guy.  However, I do spend quality time thinking.  You too can develop this same discipline.
