Is playing on a lower table than usual a good training tool?

Since the ball always goes low?

Hi Joshua,

I think it is only good for younger shorter players so that they will not develop strokes that are too different to their adult strokes.

Alright thanks. The only reason i asked is because there's is this place that my friends go and play table tennis that i think that has tables lower than usual (doesn't look like 76cm). While a lot of children go there (since i am young) the low tables are kind of annoying. I would have to do a improper stroke to get the ball over with spin. Should i keep going or should since my friends go or should i stop and find another place to play table tennis?

If it is the only place for you to have a hit then keep going but if there is an alternative then I would take it.  You are right, you will start to alter your strokes.
