  1. One of the many best/basic Lesson : Stance ! What a super trick per Aloi : chest radar !
    Jeff , the real spirit of PP …i guess he could play 24/24 …cheeze.

  2. Predicting the ball's trajectory and practicing the skills till it becomes instinct is probably the best way. Thats why you should refrain from using these chest tricks, a low ball isn't going to come towards your chest at all. Thinking about the ball won't do either, you don't have time to think about the trajectory and such in a fast paced game. Also attacking faster than you can defend is a bad choice. Balance is required or in other words intelligent playing. If you are focused on hitting the ball as fast as possible then your accuracy and defense is most likely weakened. You don't have to blow the paddle out of his hand to win the point.

  3. Hi I am 13 years old. I am simple table tennis player. I can't do forehand topspin continuously, by the time I loose control in my legs and I loose concentration and I just hit the ball somewhere.I am unsatisfied with my playing please help me.

  4. Another excellent video from Alois & Jeff. I'm returning to the game after a lengthy absence and just about to join a 'club', these videos have been inspirational 🙂

  5. This was a very helpful video as I definitely have been through the wiggle. From all your videos (especially this one) I'm learning something or improving my skills. For anyone playing Table Tennis you are the number 1 channel to watch.
    Thanks a lot!

  6. Thanks Alois. Question: you mentioned in this video that one should always 'follow the ball, in and out'. I thought that the moment after you hit the ball, you should shift your attention (away from the ball) to watch your opponent instead (and then, to resume following the ball from the moment your opponent hits it). Is this approach incorrect?

  7. I'm primarily a tennis player but recently took up table tennis and I'm really loving it. I do have a bad habit that I am trying to break myself of and it has to do with my tennis instinct of taking the racket head upwards on power shots as opposed to letting it drop to knee level and then coming up on the ball. Growing up playing tennis we were always taught to hit through the ball, rotate the body and then flick the wrist on contact to create spin. In table tennis however, it appears that spin is vitally important to keeping the ball in play and the only way to hit the correct shot is to start at knee level and finish at head level.

    Is there a drill for tennis players like myself who are trying to make that transition to table tennis?

  8. the last part in the video was great, where u showed first person view, i wish if we could see more of these videos where different shots are showed in first camera view would be of great help and much clearer to understand as to when to hit the ball, whats the contact point on racket, and how much racket should bent or closed and which direction racket should face…. please upload videos in this way, would be of great help as i am still confused about the questions i have mentioned.

  9. when I seek to have more training and ideas… nothing works better than Alois !!!

    Thanks a tonne really
