National Coach

Moving Forward

 
 
 
Today, USATT gave me my certification as a National Coach.
 
Moving forward, what are my goals?
 
1.     Perspective
Keep everything in perspective, giving God the glory for it all in word and deed.  Colossians 3:17 says…  And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.
 
2.     Training

New USATT Article and Video!

Read the Article and Watch the Video to Learn the Details of Serve Return!

One of the most commonly asked questions in table tennis is…  “How can I best return no-spin serves?”  No-spin serves appear to be very easy but can be very difficult to return.
 
If you want to loop your opponent’s backspin serve, you will probably be very focused, position your body very low, use lots of spin, and loop the ball onto the table successfully.  Do you have this same  approach when looping a no-spin serve?  Many players do not have the same level of concentration and many players do not use enough spin when returning a no-spin serve.

The Newgy Akron Open set the record for the largest tournament in NE Ohio during the last 10 years.  Leading the pack of 96 players was Wang Zhen (rated 2822) who just return from training in China and Germany.  The 2-day event began on Friday with warm-up events and concluded Saturday with the Giant Round Robin events.
