    Posted: 07/21/2009 at 10:20pm
I am newer living in Vietnam where I think table tennis is not a good world level, so far I like this game and I want to try to my best to practice it regularly as I can. Therefore, for my condion of living, I can not afford for the master who can teach me to the best player,. So, I hope with this forum I badly need you all help me your experiences of playing TT. At the moment I am weak of returning the service with long servive and puduculum long pin, and weak of footwork movement to receive the opponent attack. Who are  in forum can help me, thanks.

IMO, it is almost impossible to learn table tennis by reading book or words but it is much better off when you have someone physically teach you all the different strokes as well as footwork.

There is a lot easier to learn with someone be a mentor. You could look for some video in youtube, but it is not easy to learn though. Good luck. Wink

I recommend playing at a club with some better players.  Watching their technique will help.  Maybe they will help with informal instruction and practice.

There is too much to explain to a beginner by reading forum messages.  It a game that must be played to understand and learn.

yes, it is hard to absorb all the info by just reading forum messages or even watching the matches.  Once you have the fundamental then you can learn by listening, or reading, or watching matches.

It's impossible to become good from reading things or listening to someone speaking.
The only way in this case is watching some technique vids, and hoping it works!
Good luck! :D

Find someone feed you multiball.

My good footwork habits started with a refusal to learn backhand. I would aggressively run around the table only using forehand to open up play. Backhand block, and backhand push were about the only two strokes I used for backhand.

With multiball you train your legs to move like in a rally. You might be able to perform it perfectly in the multiball sessions but you may physically freeze up in a real game. You need to constantly think about moving your feet.

Bend your knees. Jump rope. Run everyday. This is what I do.

Footwork and forehand is always the answer.

Alright, somehow Dr. Frankenstien raised this thread from the dead.  Has anything changed in the last couple of years?

We can't learn Table Tennis by books, everything need to be learned by practicing and advice from coaches.

More real approach would be: do skipping rope,do many sprint bursts-30m,lie on Your back legs up and do 120 fast bicycles,turning Your ankles,You have natural talent, but remember, talent is compacted 10% the rest 90% sweat... You like challenge?, put small trampoline behind T.T. table and rally bouncing one one leg. You will learn balance in a jiffy.. Also as soon as You finish swing, move feet or bounce,
