Moving in Seniors doubles

Table Tennis Match Strategy

I love my seniors morning of Table tennis. I've come from tennis where doubles movement is much more defined and we do not usually get in each others way. I tripped over my partner's feet and fell backward hitting my head. It occasioned discussion with some players - sadly not her - about how to move and not get in each other's way and not be a hazard. We have a few who just do not move out of the way and take up a lot of space "right in the middle". One person said it is like trying to go round a concrete pole. Can you give us some guidance please? Better still can you do a 5 minute video showing some doubles (not at rocket speed) where players are shown moving around each other safely and effectively. Some tips and pointers would be much appreciated by me as I am quite nervous playing alongside some of my seniors colleagues. 

Thank you

Hi Ann,

This is a good thing to think about especially if you are getting injured.

We have a video on Doubles Strategy. In there we talk about movement.  Take a look at the whole video but I think in your situation take a look particularly from 8:38 where we show you movement to the side which is probably more practical.

I hope this helps.
