Hi coaches. What are the pros and cons of training on a social/home table and then playing competitions on a regulation table? Most 'home' table have thinner tops and a bounce of 220 mm to 230 mm while a tournament table will have a bounce of 250 mm to 270 mm. Will practicing on a home table affect your tournament play?
It can effect your game however, if the alternative is not playing at all in between going to the club, then practising on a lower bouncing table is OK.
On the lower bouncing table you can still work on your footwork, balance, stroke consistency and a whole lot more.
