Hi Dave,

It's great you have joined a club. This is a great way to expose yourself to more table tennis and to improve your game.

When playing against medium pimples, some good strategies are to play some high spinny loops. You don't have to always play fast against them.

Watch this video where Alois and I commentate on a game between Simon Gerada and Miao Miao from the PingSkills Classic in 2011. Miao Miao uses medium pimples on her backhand.
