The 7 Building Blocks of Table Tennis

PingSkills Show


In this edition of the PingSkills show we talk about the 7 building blocks of table tennis. If you work your way through each building block you will have developed a very good table tennis game. It's important to remember that you need to continuously revisit each block to strengthen it.

We also discuss the backhand sidespin flick in our tip of the week, and drill of the week. And in the remember when segment we go back to 1991 to relive a special moment in table tennis history. Enjoy!

Thanks Alois, I found those tips very useful. The backhand flick is something I need to het hsed to. I have been traveling but have managed to put in at least one training session a week and hope to join a group on Sunday afternoons.

Hi Brian,

Good to hear you are training regularly still.  Have you had a look at the Backhand Flick video as yet?

Thanks Alois and Jeff,

Yet another very professional video blog full of thoughtful advice and helpful instruction.  For me the greatest advance in building my game has been to develop an ability to deal with the psychology of playing.  Being able to maintain a state of calmness and of focus in a match did not come automatically to me.  I believe both abilities are ones that can be acquired like any other skill, but for me this has involved a lot of practice and training to achieve.

It is one of the more difficult parts of the game Chris.  Glad you are progressing with it.
