It has been 3 months since I played table tennis, if my table tennis quality drops, what should I do to get to my original level?

Hi Jasper,

The first thing is to be patient and not have too many expectations.

Then work through the skills that you want to work on.  You may find that there is not much difference in your ability.  In some areas, they may even have improved because you go into it with less tensions and expectations.

If you have been playing for a very long time, this process is usually quicker.

It's taking quite a long time to get to my original level. It's been 4 sessions already, my training partner and I keep missing quite a lot of balls

It's like my control has gone down the drain.

I improved my serve and receive strategies quite a lot and my topspins have more spin and my smashes are more powerful now

I think my country is about to go lockdown mode again. Sports halls have closed, community centres are closed and now my school trainings are cancelled too.

Oh that is a pity. Stay safe is the most important thing.
