Hey Jeff I hope you're doing well! Right now I’m still in recovery from surgery, but I’m really looking forward to getting back on the table! I’ve considered asking a friend nearby to come and train maybe once or twice a week. What are some basic drills we can do considering we are both relatively beginner to the Idea of training instead of just playing? 

Are there any ways you suggest to “share” the training time? So I help him with a drill and then he helps me? This way we both come away having learned something. Does this make sense and do you have any thoughts? How does this work at a club?

Hi Ethan,

When training you can think about developing your strokes initially.  Take a look at our tutorials on the Basic Strokes page.  Work your way through those.

For our Premium members we have a 52 Week Training Plan that steps you through how to practice and outlines basic training plans for the 52 week period.

We also have the Training 101 series that will help you out.

When training with a partner you can share the time by using a clock and doing 10 minutes each.  However I find a more effective way is to work out what both of you are working on and see if there are some synergies.  That way you can almost double your training time.  Try to incorporate both needs into the one activity.
