HAI NGUYEN Asked 3 years ago

Hello coach,

I usually practice table tennis alone by myself on Saturday; my question is:

How to practice alone and improve my table tennis with table and balls (200 balls) and without table?

Hi Hai,

One of the best things you can do is practice your serving on the floor.  Get the feel of the contact.

You can also hit the ball against a wall.

However, it is important that you get time on a table as well.

We have a tutorial on Practicing Alone that might give you some ideas as well.


Anyone have any other suggestions for Hai?

You can practice your forehand and backhand topspin against the wall you should hit the floor first then the ball should hitnthe floor and the ball would fly towards you because it has topspin

Tell if you understand  me

Geni,I think this will not work.
Your description does not make  sense in the first case,but whatever you mean,it will not shoot the balls against you anyway.
If you loop against the wall,the ball will pop up high above you.

You can practice the amount of spin is produced by hitting the ball up in the sky looking at its direction of curve it went, time etc.

But that will not help with the entire loop technique.
There is also an option that you can bounce the ball to the floor behind the table and then use the loop motion to perform a true loop stroke and land the ball on the table. It is a sort of self-fed multiball practise.
