Dear PingSkills,

If we may not have so much quickness of the feet and agility due to height or build, do you think a defensive chopping style is more suitable to explore? Or should we still stick to the attacking style with inverted rubber on both ends? Can the attacking style be played with lesser agility as well?

Hi Kenneth,

I don't think your height is too much of an issue.  I would more think about what you feel more comfortable doing, attacking or defending.

With regard to agility if you want to attack you can still do so utilising both forehand and backhand.  I think a defender needs a lot of agility to move quickly and a greater distance as well.

A lot of the defenders tend to be a little taller with more reach but there are also very good attacking players that are tall.
