Table Tennis Tips

Check out some tips provided by Newgy and you could be playing table tennis in no time!

  • Determine what spin is on the ball- Based on the way an opponent hits the ball, you will be able to determine what type of spin will be on the ball.
  • Hit based on spin type- Once you’ve determined the spin type, let this determine the way you angle your racket.
  • Stay in a position of readiness- This will help you be prepared no matter which direction the ball comes from.
  • Prepare your strokes- Practice your strokes over and over until they become automatic reflexes that do not require thought.
  • Use your racket only- Rackets are different and can feel differently so using your own will help you to become accustomed to it’s unique feel.
  • Practice often- Join a club (table tennis) or just find others to play with to help you practice and expand your skills.
