hey dude:

i live in vancouver british columbia..just 3 minutes from one of the best table tennis clubs in north america...my wife and i also currently accept homestay students as we have two extra rooms available...she loves to cook and i love to play table tennis and teach english...one of the conditions for homestay *parents* is that English is spoken in the house and that the students eat at least one meal with the *parents* (to facilitate the learning of the English language)...

i also have a private training centre on my property with a high end table and robo pong....

alright, I guess this hasn't really caught on. I'm Luke, I live in the US. I've been playing for only 6 months or so, but a chinese player at my club told me that he thought I had "the touch" and that he expected great things from me. I'm 21 years old, and practice as much as I can. I love this forum.

Hey, no problem. I love this place. Where I am, no one really plays TT, so It was interesting for me to find a group of people that actually care about the sport.

By the way, how does that Avalox play?

Ah, the Avalox :D,
its great man, if your a heavy attacker, its HEAVY, and very fast, and its meant for a 3rd ball kill shot, IMO,
I usually kill the ball after i serve, gotta work consistency, :p

Very good indeed, the Avalox, ah :D
Heavy, fast and a killer.
Good for third ball attacks, IMO.
I usually kill the ball on the 3rd hit, fast for rallies, but for topsin, its so-so.

Hello everyone.  This is my first post on mytt.net, but i have been lurking the forums since probably around March this year.  I am currently 21 years old and attending Texas A&M Unversity as an undergraduate.  My major is Electrical Engineering ,and i hope to attain a bachelors degree for now.

I have been playing table tennis for about 8 months, but only consistantly for 4 months.  I am a chinese penholder with reverse backhand who started with some junk paddle from wal mart but bought a pre-assembled at zeropong to help my game grow.  There are ALOT of people who play ping pong the game, but only a few of them play table tennis over here.  Mostly, the Asians over here are very good, and i have trouble just returning their serve.  There is so much i would like to learn about the game and the technical aspects that come with penholder grip.  Since there is no coaching here, except for probably a sound beating, i will most likely try and post questions on this forum.

Some other things that are happening around here are to hopefully get a school club going and try and register for the NCTTA<-I think thats right.  One of my friends and semi-table tennis coach is handling the situation right now, and maybe this semester or next semester we can become recognized.

Lastly, I would like to thank everyone here for making this place such a great community and a place to share and learn information.  Maybe someday i will be able to contribute to the discussions and be able to help someone who is starting out like me. I wish everyone here to have an enjoyable holiday coming up, and that everyone will keep on hitting and never give up on such an amazing sport.

Hello. I am new to this forum. I have the impression that many inexperienced players are offering opinions about a whole range of things they know little or nothing about. Everyone has a right to their opinion, but at some point it just becomes a pooling of ignorance. Personally, I think that unless a player is quoting someone who is recognized as knowlegdeable, or has special insight as a player or coach they should probably refrain from answering peoples questions.

I believe US table tennis players are more heavily infuenced by the TT manufacturers'marketing campaigns than by actual knowledge of the sport. If you doubt me, just walk into ANY local club or tournament venue. Everyone is attired with designer warm-ups and shoes and towels and they have their late-model equipment glued up and ready to go and they look great - UNTIL THEY START TO PLAY! Try to find someone who can steadily put the ball in the same place 10, 20 or 30 times and you will be looking for a long time. This is conducive to bad practice which is conducive to bad technique which is conducive to bad game play. It is a shame.

The TT community needs to reject this Hollywood, glittery, superficial image concsiousness.    I think people need to stop worrying about looking good and start worrying about how to PLAY WELL - AND I DON'T MEAN WITH JUNK RUBBER! We must study the pros to learn what this sport is about, not pump our egos with superficial nonsense.

Does anyone agree with me?

Please share,
New member,

 

I agree with your first point/paragraph

On you second point/paragraph your you say that US are too influenced by companies and that it effects there playing level in a negative way. In some ways I agree but mainly I disagree. There are some players at the 1000 level that start to use speed glue but more importantly, most poeple who glue are around 2200 which is considered a pretty high level for the US. There are people who play in the olympics who are lower than the 2200 level. There are people that are into TT clothing but thats actually a good thing. Not only does it make a phycological effect on the player giving the perception of greatness but its better for the economy and for the TT company. If everyone were like you, there would be no point in TT clothing and TT compaines would make less money. There is no harm in TT clothing. Furthermore not everyone is into TT clothing and stuff like that. I play at American clubs and not everyone is like that. If everyone were described to be as you were in USA everyone would have the paddle palace licence plate but I've only seen one car that has ever had that and to me thats bad beccuase when TT companies make more business TT becomes bigger and one way they get bigger is by selling things that people want such as clothing or license plates.

Third, why cant we pump ourselves with superficial nonsense? If it makes us play better it works. Just like gatorade, its no better than water but it makes us think that we have more energy thus making us play better. Then wahts wrong with junk rubber? Whats wrong with a chopper that attracts the audience? I can say STOP USING INVERTED RUBBERS and not support my statemnet. Plus, we dont need to study the pros in every aspect. According to TT world one of the three main differnces between us and pros is that we try to copy all of there techniques incorrectly. Some techniques are easy to learn such as a forehand drive but some we should be trying to learn such as how to lob.

Hello sir, thank you for your reply to me.

I am compelled to respond to some things you said in
your reply that are simply NOT TRUE. Firstly, I never
said that designer sportswear and equipment MADE
people play bad. Expensive gear is not what makes a
good player good nor does it make a bad player bad.
My gripe is with bad players who are preoccupied with
looking good and not concerned about improving their
skill set. This is what I refer to as 'superficial
nonsense.'

Perhaps some minimal psychological advantage is
derived from "dressing to kill" but that doesn't
equip you to execute proper technique, footwork, shot
selection, ball placement or strategy. Just because
people 'feel' better doesn't mean they are better.
Watch people who wear toupees or dye their hair if you
want an example of how a person can look ridiculous to
everyone while feeling good about himself.

My point is that the EMPHASIS is in the wrong place
for most players. Don't you think the optimum
scenario would be to look good AND play well?
Stepping up to the table with that confidence would
give you a huge advantage, psychological and
otherwise.

P.S You said in your reply that Gatorade and water are
the same thing but produce different results in
people. Surely you don't mean this do you? The
ingredient list and nutritive value of both is readily
available via a Google search if you are interested in
a factual comparison.

Be well -

I think i misunderstood you on something, ur talking about the possiblility and I'm talking about the assumption that ur possiblility is true. Ur assuming that people are buying cloths and not worrying about there technique which the chances of that are very small because I'm willing to bet that there isnt a single person in the entire USA that is a tt player that wants to improve and is so worried about there cloths that they forget there improvement.

About the gatorade, results show that energy wise, salt water and gatorade as the same because salt water has electolytes just as the gatordade does and in some cases the salt water can be more helpful depnding on how much salt you put in.

You're right that feeling better doesnt meant that ur playing better but generally speaking, when u feel better, u dont have an excuse, u can think better, and so forth and ur game will dramitically imporve for most people. Thats why the chinse national team hires phyciotrists to help out there athletes. Not ALL material will help but some things such as gatordade,clothing,new rubber, new shoes, and prixe money for winning might give make u better phycologically thus having a better chance of winning.

Hello guys,

I like the forum aloth. I joined the forum day or two ago and it is a great resource. I started playing ping pong when I was around 7-9 seriusly cant remember any more. Born in Bosnia and Herzegovina was fortunate that the sport in the Ex-Yugoslavia was well promoted and funded. We traveled aloth even as juniors and played against great clubs. That gave me great attitude toward the sport and I loved it since. I attended every Yugoslavian championship that where held in Zagreb at the time my best placement was around 27 in doubles. I realy was there for the fun and the girls even if I could have placed higher easy we goofed of to much IMO. Since I left Bosnia as a refugee I played in Germany for a while and then found new interest that got me away from Table Tennis for a while GIRL'S GIRL'S GILR'S damn puberty. Now after a long time I am starting back with the sport here in Salt Lake City, UTAH USA. We have one big gym with about 8 tables only thing is we meet once a week and that is insufficient for me to get back in shape.  I hope to be able to afford me a robot soon since the college is eating all my $$$$$ it may be a while. I was fortunate to have 2 trainers one offensive and one defensive chopping trainer. Those chopps helped me with getting a great forhand topspin or Loop that I can execute on almost any type of service as long it passes the table by 1". I probably play now about 40% what I was capable of but I hope I'l get into the grove soon.

Turned into quite a long post well nice meeting you all and good luck in the sport. 

 

Nice to meet you all.

I just want to reply also to the previous posts about equipment. Equipment is Important if you dont have the tools you can't do the job. TT clothing may sound little gooffy but they have some advantages also. If you have a pair of shorts that will hang on you knees because you got them at K-Mart compaired to special designed shorts that let some air in the undercariage I go with the air flow. Same with shirts prices are insane like the Killerspin microfiber shirt 54 usd but if it is going to take the heat away from the body and help me keep temperature and sweat down il take it. With the new guys its more about feeling to be part of the TT comunity. They are not aware what paddle or rubbers are best for them until they develope their own game style and can judge for them selfs. I can tell you wow primorac carbon is great yes maybe for me because it will fit my style but it may be to much for you to handle. Not in a sence that you may be bad player it is just not your speed factor and it is not you. Find your style and you will find the right equipment that fits your style. I think it is great that people include mesages like ONLY FOR EXP PLAYER's.  If you want to be in style and it fits your budget go for it but dont do to much on the blades and rubbers because if you dont know how to use the equipment you will end up changing it all the time as a excuse for your bad game. Just note that there is equipment for every level of game. Profesionals use they own brands do you realy think because it is best for them. Its just to promote, they are profesionals they can play with your blade same way like with my because they know how to use it.  I used Tibhar light IV for a while now even if I am offensive player I didnt feel that more speed would provide me what I need until I was able to say now I got to the max with this one its time to move up to carbon.

Thats all.

Helle Everyone, Im new to this site but I've been playing TT for about 6 years. I live in Manchester Tennessee, (US),and im 21. We dont really have a club to play in, just kind of a garage thing, I think we are all good within our own. Anyways, i have a few questions, thought i would begin here...I would love to learn to play better and be more confident in my game, just dont have anywhere to go if you know what i mean....if theres anyone close and would like to give some lessons or just hang out amongst good company and play some games, let me know....

I have to 729-2 special edition, has the power sponge(blackside) and the long pips on the red side..i play all forehand very little backhand..i feel the 729-2 is a good one for me, i play back and loop often, love the spin, but also have a powerful overhand right thats pretty accurate. I like chopping but im not up to par with it, if anyone has any tips or helpful thoughts just let me know thanks.....

o, and to the guy who ranted about people in the US sucking at table tennis and being superficial, and just sucking at the sport in general, well your right. If i had not thrown out my arm playing baseball i would have never even thought about playing table tennis. In the US when u want to do a past time you play baseball, football, basketball, more "american" sports. I play with a handful of guys in michigan that are 1900 and up who take the game somewhat seriously, and most of them are from different countries (what else is new). This is a great game and if i could go back in time i might have played it over most "american" sports but who knows. As for the sport growing in the US, it is going to take a lot of time and you knocking people down isn't going to help, instead offer a helping hand. Who cares what they wear, they have to start somewhere.

Hello everybody, I'm a 23 year old male from the Philippines but i have been in South Korea for almost a year now for graduate studies.

I have been lurking on the boards for almost 2 months now, downloading as much of the videos as i can. (Thank you very much to everybody who takes the time and effort to edit and upload these videos for the rest of us)

I have been "playing" probably since i was 10 but i have been training only for almost four years. I play shakehand with Gergely21 Carbon, FH: RITC 729 (must get new FH rubber...) and BH: Butterfly Super Anti (yes, I play with anti rubber)

I have found a club here in Korea where i can practice regularly. I am the youngest player there (well, next to the little kiddies anyway) and the only foreigner in the club.

Players from both the Philippines and South Korea, please feel free to send me a message. Nice "meeting" everybody here and I hope I'll have fun here in the boards and learn things to improve my game.

(ps. that's me on my avatar)

HI friends. My name is Gabriel, I am Italian but now living in Geneva (Switzerland). I play for a local Club, I am also a referree (F.S.T.T.).

I start playing when I was 6 years old. I am now 55 but I still enjoy this fantastic sport.  I also join another Forum (the one of Italian Table Tennis Federation) but I also like to be, let's say, a bit international (like my family: 2 children are Italo-Canadian while my wife is Egyptian/Canadian/Italian).

I have been in many international places: Abu Dhabi/Dubai (U.A.E.) - Japan Tokyo) - Switzerland (Zürich and now Geneva).

Best regards to everybody ! Ciao

Hi Gabriel,

I'm Sean and am also an older gentleman.  Welcome to the forum.  It is a great place for information.  Some good and some bad, but for the most part a good place with people who are nice and are here to have fun.

I for one, love the Videos section.  It's a place to share videos for recent games that I would have not normally have seen.  Table Tennis (TT) from where I live is not as popular so I have to go online to buy stuff and learna more about the sport.

Once again hello and have fun.

Hello from and old newbie.
I'm just getting back into TT after an extended break. Back in the 80's, when I played oganized TT, we were playing the original Sriver and Tackiness rubbers. Carbon blades were extreme cutting edge and Nitaku had just emerged as the *new and upcoming* ball mfg. Their efficacy was still undecided in the TT world so we stuck with Halex3* for a while, trying to resist change. Eventually we caved, of course. We'd never heard of 'speed glueing', either.
I guess I have some catching up to do in the research dept.
Nice to meet you all. It's good to see this excellent sport still has legs, and is even growing in popularity. Clubs and teams were few and far between in the past. Now, joining a club is only a mouse click away.
See y'all around.

hello, im from australia. im currently in university studying a bachelor of design.

there is no table tennis club in my university, however i will try and make one.
my style is  a shakehand grip, still learning the basics [played for 1 yr and half]. i would like to be a power looper, and also my serve is BACKHAND!!!!! WOOHOOOOO. go PRIMORAC U BEAST AND POTA U SEXY THING.
anyway, i have better bh then fh, and in match, i have more bh winners.

hence i serve bh all the time.
my weakness is footwork and horrible fh. and also returning service.
in ur american ratings, i would say im 500, compared to say the elite players at homebush [2000 sydney olympics].
