I was wondering if you have ever encountered a table tennis player suffering from the yips? I believe it is affecting me and it's obviously quite upsetting to lose a skill you once had in the blink of an eyelid. So if you have any relevant advice/information it would be much appreciated.

Many Thanks,

Hi Robin,

I think every single person who has played competitively suffers from the Yips at some stage.

The Yips are a reflection of over anxiousness.  The remedy is to be able to stay calm… easier said than done.

The first thing you need to do is watch the lesson on how to Recognise Your Feelings.
