with growing popularity of "blue bat pingpong",one of my friends visited US abd brought back the hardbat table tennis. He is makinh the very first hardbat Championship here in Czech. I would like to ask you if you have some tips about hardbat play. While I understand what hardbat is and how it behaves,i am not 100% sure what is the correct technique for bats created according to approx 1950's standard. This entire sport is,maybe except for service execution rules,a full copy of how table tennis looked like prior the introduction of an inverted rubber.
It's great to hear that hardbat is gaining popularity. As you may know, one of hardbat's big advantages is that the gear is a lot simpler compared to playing with inverted rubber. This means that you can focus more on the technique and strategy rather than on what rubber to use and your gear setup. My advice when it comes to hardbat technique is to focus on control placement and variation. Hardbat's lack of spin should be compensated with creative use of placement and angles and being able to change things regularly with subtle variation. Additionally, remember to focus on footwork and positioning. Hardbat can be more unforgiving in errors making it crucial to be in the right place at the right time. With hardbat, you need to be very precise in your motion and execution, so even relatively small mistakes can have a huge impact on the outcome of the rally. I hope this has been helpful to you.
