Practicing Alone in Table Tennis | PingSkills


Hi, I’m Alois from Pingskills. If you’re starting
out in Table Tennis and you haven’t got a practice partner or a Table Tennis table, we’re going
to show you some skills that you can practice by yourself A really important skill when you’re starting
out is to be able to control the Table Tennis ball with your bat. Let’s start by bouncing the ball on one side. This develops your control and your feel for the bat on the ball. As you progress, you can start to make that
skill a little bit more difficult. You could start by doing “pancakes” turning the bat over from side to side. As you progress you could start to make things a little
bit more difficult by getting the ball on the edge of your bat. With all these exercises, you can use PingSkills consistency chart to keep a track of how you’re going. You can step it up a level by starting to put some spin on the bounces. This will teach you how to control some spin as well. What about trying to bounce the ball underneath your leg? So, let’s have a go. So then you could instead of having 3 bounces before you put it under the leg you just have one, two, one, two, one, two or just one Let’s try the other leg. Then you could try bouncing it and catching it Or what about rolling it from one side over to the other? You can start to invent some skills of your
own that you can challenge yourself with and really, try to improve your control over the Table Tennis ball. You can also practice by hitting the ball up against a wall. If you listen to the ball it starts to make a very rhythmic sound. The easiest way to start with is by hit the ball up against the wall and letting it bounce before you hit it. You can start to switch sides, hitting one with the forehand and one with the backhand. Start to make it a little bit faster. Another simple thing that you can do is just using any table push it up against a wall and start to do a little bit of hitting against the wall. It’s important to just learn the feel of hitting the ball softly. Similarly to hitting against the wall on the floor you can start to alternate sides. You can then turn the table around and start to hit the ball a bit further. At PingSkills, we talk about generating spin. This is something that you can practice at home on your own. The basic principles of generating spin are brushing the ball and then brushing it fast. You can easily practice that just with a piece of floor. You can see what effect the spin that you’re generating has on the ball. You can try and get some backspin and get the ball to come back towards you. Or some sidespin and try to make the ball curve. Or you can make the ball curve around the other way. These are all skills that can easily be practiced alone or without a Table Tennis table.

    I know this is an old video but…. I really like table tennis but I don't have a table (can't buy one) I have a low quality bag but it still has a lot of rubber (thicker rubber) with no pimples. Can I practice hitting the ball across my living room with different types of spin? Do u think I will get better this way? Thanks.

    I find it very pleasing to listen to this. I don't know why though. There's something really pleasant and calmful, maybe in your voice, maybe in the ball sound. It's like the nowadays so called ASMRs but this one is definitelly much better 🙂
