This sounds like the most basic advice ever given – be ready for the ball to come back! About 90% of players have developed the bad habit of hitting a good shot then just ASSUMING that it won’t be returned. Starting today, you must force yourself to be disciplined in thinking that all of your serves, flips, loops, smashes, and all other shots will be returned. No early celebration!
We all know TT is widely played by a variety of people both young and old at many different levels. Most use the game as a fun activity while hanging with friends and family.
Many who've played consistently have most likely visited a club near them at one time or another where they found friendly competition as well as challenging matches.
