I used to play table tennis 2-3 years ago. I loved this site back then. Then I had to move to some other place, and afterwards I did not find any club until now.
So, now as I am trying to resume my practice, my partner is asking me to not hit the ball very hard while counter top-spinning or topspin against backspin and any other shots like that.
He says that if we can hit the ball slowly with the basic movement correct then we will face no trouble in tournaments attacking the ball fast. All we need to do is make the stroke bigger and faster.
Do you feel he is correct, or we must practice attacking separately too. I think that we should practice attacking or else it may create problems in serious matches.
Please let me know your thoughts on this issue.
Thanks a lot.
Welcome back to the game and to the PingSkills site.
At first it is important to practice hitting the ball with good control to develop the stroke. IF you are wanting to hit the ball faster, your partner is correct, you need to then make the stroke bigger and move your bat through faster. However, before using it in a match you should practice it in training as well.
