Top Table Tennis Coaching related questions
Yes! Table tennis can give you a great cardiovascular workout. You can work many major muscle groups like your legs, serving arm and core, all while having fun! When you’re having a good time playing, you may forget all the effort you put into the game and burn a lot of calories without realising it. Regular table tennis games can also be a gateway activity to working out - some players will do everything to improve their game.
That depends on the complexity of your goals and how well you master the lessons. If you can devote five hours a day of daily training, you can become a good player in two weeks. If you’re a more advanced player who needs to improve their technique, this can take anywhere from a few weeks to a few months. You can ask your Tasker for an estimate of how long it might take to reach your training goals.
It would be ideal to prepare your trainers, comfortable outfit, playing table, net, ball and racket. If you lack some of the equipment, some Taskers can lend you some gear or buy these for you upon request. If your Tasker gives some of the lessons online, have a laptop or desktop computer ready along with a webcam and fast internet connection.
A good age for your kids to start playing is at age six. Your kid’s brain and motor coordination are developed enough for them to learn and do the basics at this age. This is also the age where they can better understand instructions and execute them. You may want to start your kids early, as the world’s youngest table tennis player is set to compete in the Tokyo Olympics at 11 years old!
You may be surprised, but yes, table tennis can be a demanding sport - but only if you compete at high levels, where you’ll face some of the fastest and youngest opponents. According to the International Table Tennis Federation rankings, the current number one player is 24-year-old Fan Zhendong of China. Those who play against him often need to make split-second decisions to score points.
For what appears to be a simple activity in a small space, a one-on-one game of table tennis can be strenuous enough to burn 575 to 775 calories in 1 hour of play. This is assuming this is a professional game against a high-ranking player. You can expect to burn less in a friendly game of table tennis, ranging from 350 to 500 calories per hour.
What do table tennis coaching services include?
Table tennis coaching services include all the activities necessary to teach beginners in the sport or provide advanced lessons and improve the techniques of experienced players. The session can consist of live instruction, teaching you table tennis online, or combining both if appropriate.
The course can include all there is to know about the game, including the rules and how to win using proven techniques and strategies.
Drawing up a training program
Your table tennis coaching Tasker begins the service by asking you about your specific goals and needs. Are you a beginner who wants to learn and play for fun? Do you need to improve your technique for competitions? Discuss with your Tasker what you want from their instruction, and they can provide you with the appropriate training program.
Teaching grips, serves, stances & game rules
If you’re a beginner, your table tennis coach can teach you the right way to grip the table tennis racket. They can teach you the handshake or the penhold grip and the correct stance when playing. Your Tasker can also teach you all the game’s rules and how to do proper serves, backhand and forehand strokes to score points.
Strategies for advanced players
For advanced players, your Tasker can show you how to do strokes that place more spin and power on the ball. They can also show you advanced serves that may prove difficult for your opponent to return and help you score a point easily - sometimes with a flick of the wrist!
If you’re a serious table tennis player and need to improve your technique, your Tasker can engage you in a game to observe your technique and see what areas need improvement.
If necessary, they may recommend a diet and exercise program to help you improve. While you don’t have to be very muscular to play table tennis, it helps to be fit to move fast and develop the stamina to keep up with your opponent. Why not hire someone to help you with your fitness program and get someone to provide you with nutritious, healthy food?
Practical testing & assessment
Once you’ve covered all the lessons on rules and how to play, your Tasker can arrange a friendly game to test your knowledge. They can play against you or have a student of a similar level to test your skills. You may want to get your table and net out of storage and get someone to assemble it in preparation for your game.
Some Taskers may film your game so they can review it with you later and assess your performance. With the help of the video, they can point out to you which areas need improvement. Your Tasker can repeat this process until they are satisfied that you have achieved your learning objectives and can now play table tennis at the skill level you wanted.
