Table Tennis - Tactical Thinking Guidelines


Tactical Thinking Guidelines 

• Keep probing opponent to find weakness.
• Serve short and attack the third ball.
• Loop the serve if it is long.
• Playing the ball wide to the FOREHAND (when possible) opens up the BACKHAND.
• Serve short and use drop shots when returning short serves.
• Use the entire table when serving.
• Have more than one option on each serve return.
• Attack & defend the middle as the number one focus.
• Change spins/speed especially when on the offense. Variation of these will improve deception.
• Have a game plan then follow and adjust when necessary. This will improve your concentration.

First, you have to attack your opponent’s middle; this is the switch point between forehand and backhand. This is sometimes called the pocket; if you were playing a right hander it would be their right pocket. A good loop or block to the middle can lead to indecision (as in FOREHAND or BACKHAND). They will have to move and hit and the body inhibits the proper swing. So, if you can place the ball to your opponent’s middle quickly they will have three different areas to deal with. Fast serves, quick block/pushes and loops are all weapons that can be used to exploit the middle. One note of caution: the middle is a moving target, not a stationary one. It requires skill and experience to consistently find it. When I compete, attacking the middle is my main focus.

Changing spin and speed is essential to winning table tennis. So many players spin the ball hard, hit it fast, have all the strokes yet never reach their potential. Why? You must keep your opponent off balance – changing spin and speed as well as placement is necessary to be effective in this sport. One block goes in the net, the next off the end. How can you learn this technique? Consciously think about it. Change the arc on your loops, mix up the speed when you attack. Use less friction and hit fake (FOREHAND) loops that your opponent will block in the net. Practice these skills; you will find them invaluable. Yes, faster is generally better but if it’s always the same your opponent can easily adjust and use the speed against you. Push with heavy spin then light spin. Changing spins and speeds combined with good placement can improve anyone’s level. The bottom line is you must use your brain during play; conscience thoughts, not just instinct.

Table tennis is like physical chess, or cat and mouse interplay. You must be thinking and be aware of what your opponent is also planning. In the beginning this will be difficult. But, you must start somewhere and you will improve this process as you gain experience and will be less likely to become nervous. Think about it this way – if your opponent is expecting you to attack it might be a good time to defend and vice versa. Combination tactics: Play one ball to the middle then the next one wide or vice versa. Impart heavy spin on one ball then light spin on the next. Play short to one side then deep to the other corner.

What about playing specific styles? What to do against a power looper? Serve short and attack first. On return of serve limit the amount of pushing you do. Attack the serve or drop it short. If your opponent has a strong FOREHAND loop your strategy will be to minimize how many times he can use it, trying to take away or limit your opponent from using their best weapon is a successful tactic and always part of my game plan.

Playing a penholder (shall me reveal this…?): What to do? Remember these tactics are in general terms. High spinny loops to their backhand are difficult to block for the penhold player. Do not attack or counter with speed to the backhand – penhold players use this energy to block you out of position. Generally, play safe and topspin to their backhand side and when possible attack the forehand side with force. Playing the ball wide to the FOREHAND then deep to the BACKHAND or vice versa works well. Do not push slowly to the BACKHAND corner. The penhold player is excellent attacking with the FOREHAND from the BACKHAND corner.

What about the defensive or blocking style player? Be patient. Remember, they are playing this way because their offense is usually weak or inconsistent. Choose your attack carefully. Change the pace of your attacks; vary the spin and speed on your loops. When pushing or drop shotting, play to their short forehand, do not make consecutive attacks unless you are sure of the spin and your position. Exploit the fact that they probably can’t hit through you. Against the defensive player, attack the middle whenever possible and of course move them in and out. The blocking player is generally susceptible on the wide FOREHAND or wide BACKHAND.

If you want to improve the tactical side of your game you must know your strengths, be focused, do your homework and be aware of your opponent’s strengths. Have fun while you’re doing this … this is the mental challenge of table tennis. Our sport is like physical chess. You must be ready to move and choose the appropriate shot in the fraction of a second. Of course, experience is the greatest teacher.

Lastly have fun when you play…you will think more clearly.

How to Move Up a Level

How can you move up a level? By improving all parts of your game, because one weak link in your game is like a weak link in a chain.
You could work hard, dramatically improve one aspect of your game, and hope to move up a level. But it’s not that simple. Suppose you develop a really nice forehand loop. With this weapon, you would think that your level would go up dramatically. And sure enough, you will do better against players around your own level.
But when you play players a level higher, their level is far enough ahead of yours that they’ll simply do something to disarm your new weapon. They may serve or push short, push very heavy, throw spiny or fast serves at you, use ball placement, block well, force backhand exchanges, play quick shots, or simply attack first to take your weapon (in this case your forehand loop) away.
Often, stronger players will seem to win on one of their strengths, when in fact they are winning by exploiting a weakness of yours that allows them to use their strength. A strength in your game can compensate for a weakness, but only to a certain extent. A stronger player will simply set up his strengths by going to your weaknesses.
The lesson is that to move up a level, you need to improve your game overall, not just one aspect. A player who is a level stronger than you rarely defeats you with one aspect of his game; he does so by using the overall level of his game.
There are, of course, players who have improved all but one aspect of their game, and, by improving that one final aspect, suddenly go up the coveted level!

So how do you go about moving your game up a level? You have to be able to match the higher-level players on five key things:
1. Returning your opponents’ serves as well as they return yours.
2. Either rally as fast as your opponents do, or force your opponents to rally at your pace (by slowing the pace down with pushes, slow loops, controlled drives, etc.). Rallying at their pace can also mean reacting to their pace (i.e. blocking or chopping), because “pace” means both speed and quickness.
3. Reacting to your opponents’ rallying spins (loops, pushes, chops, lobs, spins returned by long pips, etc.) as well as they react to yours.
4. Ending the point (i.e. smashing or loop killing) as well as your opponents do. This can also mean stopping them from ending the point effectively or consistently by not giving them easy shots, or it can mean a series of strong shots that win the point.
5. And finally, possessing at least one strength that threatens your opponents as much as their strengths threaten you. This includes having a way to get your strength(s) into play.

You may have noted that tactics is not one of the five “keys.” This is because tactics is part of all five keys. Stronger/weaker tactics simply make you stronger/weaker in each key.
If you can do some (but not all) of the above five keys, your performance in a tournament will go up some, perhaps half a level, but not a full level. Developing a single “overpowering” strength won’t raise your level as much as you’d think, as opponents a level higher will beat you on the less developed parts of your game. Even players at your “previous” level will still often beat you by exploiting these weaknesses. But … if you work to improve all five of these keys, you may find yourself going up dramatically.
What’s stronger, a chain with four powerful links and one weak one, or a chain with five pretty strong ones?

New Rubber : Adidas P3

Harga : USD40.00 
Origin: Germany


In late 2010, Adidas entered the market of table tennis equipments.Adidas launched four rubbers in two families at first. The two rubber families are P series (Performance series)  and R series (Response series). P (Performance) series are for professional or skilled players who demand good spin capability of rubber. R (Response) series are for amateur players who prefer speed to spin. The most advanced German rubber technology is applied for all these rubbers. So these rubbers provide best performance in respective categories, though there isn’t much room of choice.
P series may be the mainstream of Adidas rubbers. There are two brothers in this family - P5 and P3. This two rubbers are German TENSOR rubbers though Adidas doesn’t use the logo of TENSOR. And, these are classified as spin-oriented tension rubbers (like Tenergy series). P5 has the appearance of spin-oriented tension rubber of “extreme” type (= Tenergy 05 type), but its characteristics is quite different from the rubbers of conventional “extreme” type from the other companies. P3 has the appearance of spin-oriented tension rubber of “intermediate” type (= Tenergy 64 type), and its characteristics is also those of intermediate type. But, P3 is softer and faster than most of the rubbers of its class.

Comments from users...
Have played for about 10 hours with Adidas P3 rubber - max thickness on both sides:
I found it really nice - used to play with Tenergy 05 in the past but was quite bothered by the high throw and a certain degree of unpredictability. With P3 there were so many loops that flew off my bat and seemed to go long only to curve in and land inside. With Tenergy if i did not change the angle of the bat while switching from BH to FH, the ball would go long - P3 is so much more forgiving - a swing is all that is required - so much less to think of the angle while looping Speed almost the same as Tenergy. Blocking however is much better and so is the counter game from close and middle distance. Pushes are spinny and deep and rarely does the ball pop over. Sound is great - kind of like a gunshot when one blocks a fast drive. I for one did not find too much of a difference in the catapult effect of T05 and P3. T05 on the other hand does have more spin in looping and the ball seems to bite deeper in the rubber than in P3. On the whole I found P3 to be more controllable with the speed and spin being right up there which makes me wonder why it is not getting as much publicity as it should get. Where I come from P3 is less than half the price of a T05 and so great value for money.
i have been playing P3 for almost 10 weeks, what i have to say that it is very gooooood...
i would compare this rubber to T64 instead of T05...
it is faster, better control than T64...
not sensitive to incomming spin...
a real excellent rubber...
I played with P3, and it is a good rubber all around, but it does not have the dwell time and spin of Tenergy 05 or 64. It's a really good rubber, especially coming from a company so new to the tt scene, but I can't see players switching from Tenergy 05/64 to P3 until something can be done about the spin and dwell time. Other Euro rubbers, such as Hexer or the Acuda S2 have a little more dwell time and spin imo.

Table Tennis Tips and Tricks

Table Tennis Tips and Tricks
  1. Mix up serves of different length and spin. Some examples of advanced serves include medium-long, deep, short, down-the-line, pure spin, pure speed, etc. Serves to the elbow tend to be very effective, since the receiver must quickly decide (and often does not in time) to use a forehand or backhand.
  2. Develop a third-ball attack. This is where you serve, the receiver receives, and you nail one in for a winner. An example is a short backspin serve, followed by a long push, then a powerful loop.
  3. Attack whenever you can, primarily on a long serve. It has been proven that the player to open the offense most often usually wins point, set, and match.
  4. Keep your eyes mostly on the opponent's racket when receiving a serve. If you have ever seen World Champion Jan-Ove Waldner play, you can see that he makes a quick glimpse at how high the ball is tossed, then watches back down to the racket. If you keep your eyes on the ball, the server will baffle you with his deceptions.
  5. Mix up your returns when receiving. Most players too often tend to push, allowing their opponents to start the offense. Mixing up loops, drives, pushes, chops, etc. provides for excellent variation and a bewildered opponent.
  6. Choose your equipment wisely. If you are ready for professional equipment, begin with a medium-fast blade (rather than fast). A medium-fast blade allows you to rely more on technique than on equipment to get the ball over the net. It will also provide optimum control. The most important consideration for a blade, however, is that it provides good "feeling." As for rubber try to get the "beginner" kinds for the beginning. The reason for this is because beginner rubbers are designed with less spin and speed, and this translates into easier returns of spinny balls. Trying to return a sidespin serve will be a hair-pulling experience for a beginner if he/she uses an overly spinny rubber.
  7. Forehands are the way to go. To hit forehands wherever you are on the table, you will need to develop good side-to-side footwork. But it never hurts to work extra on your backhand so that your opponent won't know what hit him/her when you blast that down the line backhand smash! The best players are always two-winged, or being able to attack almost equally well on both hands.
  8. Find some cool serves to experiment with. Examples include a high, heavy backspin serve that bounces on your side near the net, on the opponent's side near the net, and goes back over to your side. Or you can go about 20 feet to the side of the table and, standing sideways, nail the ball on the side so that it arcs back to the table and opponent. Not only is it a heck of a lot of fun, trying these serves also promotes the development of 'touch' and spin.
  9. Control your temper. When you are losing in a match, or have missed several shots in a row, don't get mad, get even. Ask yourself what needs to be done in order to beat the problem that is plaguing your game. Then try the solution. If it doesn't work, do it again. Until the match is over, you should never give up. If it is your turn to serve, then you are allotted a reasonable amount of time per serve to wait and think things over before you toss the ball. Take advantage of it.

Latest from DONIC

The Rubber with vicious spin! The new Formula Donic Baracuda rubber with built-in speed glue effect produces fantastic spin. The ball leaves the blade in a noticeably higher arc, giving considerably more spin. The increased rotation of the ball stabilizes the shot and increases speed. Shot accuracy is visibly improved even for top players. Baracuda offers that extra margin of safety and touch even in the tightest situation. In addition, Baracuda's top rubber surface has been newly constructed to be more durable than similar rubbers, resulting in more playing hours with a surface that is less prone to damage.

p/s: Saper nak try nie...Napi? Megat? ManGanu? Azroul? Abg Mat Nor? Jayen? Hairi? maybe Sahak kot, sebab getah dia dah mati...

Comments :
1)I recently got this rubber and paired it with an OFF blade. I can honestly say that I was surprised by the throw angle and spin (both were very high), but I was slightly disappointed with the lack of speed. This is strange considering that even with a max thickness on my fh, I felt like I still had to swing hard. Other than the speed, everything else is great. The spin is great on serves and loops, the throw angle, while it does take some adjustment, helps to hit short loops. Now, I feel that I have to mention that I had since played nittaku hammond x rubber, which had incredible speed and little control, but I think that the baracuda's control would rival that of any offensive rubber. It also has noticably more spin than my hammond x, possibly comparable to the legendary tenergy 05. Overall, a great rubber: despite its overrated speed, it has incredible spin, good control, and I am satisfied with my buy.
2)This is a great rubber. Amazing spin, perhaps more than tenergy 05, and the control is pretty good. The only complaint I have is that it is a bit slower than something like tenergy 05. Other than that the lack of speed is better for control, so it might be good for players that need more control than tenergy.

3) Amazing rubber. high throw, great speed, great spin. less sound than other glue effect rubbers, but get used to it. those days are gone. u will never find a rubber that has the glue sound and lasts a long time. gives u more for ur money than tenergy. just dont get max thickness because thats kinda slow and has low throw. get 2mm. that still has really high throw. u may have to glue it once and then reglue for the rubber to work properly

4) As others have stated, this rubber produces very heavy topspin comparable to Tenergy05. Somethings that separate Baracuda from Ten are control, weight and price. Baracuda is not as sensitive to incoming spin as Ten05 is. Knowing this, playing close to the net is much easier. Flips are a cinch and blocks are simple to control also. Baracuda is noticeably lighter and costs a mere $25 less per sheet than the Ten line of products. It seems that I have much more to gain than to lose by using Baracuda over Tenergy.

5) Barracuda is in this regard easier to play. Your shots has more consistency. The high arc makes it easier to loop against heavy underspin und gives you a bit better control. Shots where you didnt stand good to ball (good placement from opponent or just bad footwork :)) have a higher percentage to hit the table. Both rubbers a very good and it depends heavenly on your playstyle and technique.

Tips From Ayam...

Becoming a champion when you're in your best playing state is normal; being able to win when you're in a poor state truly reveals your flaws.

The fact is most players should learn to play at a slow enough pace to develop proper footwork and techniques before they attempt to score with big loopkills or drive. 
An all-around blade with cheap but modern smooth rubbers is what many players should go for it. Anything faster will severely impede their footwork development as the ball will often come back too fast for them to move their feet properly, even in stroke drills.
With All-round blade/rubber, first you have to expect the ball will come back to you as your blade/rubber lack of spin and power compared to Tenergy or any high tension rubbers. The result is their footworks are much better developed than a comparably-rated looper.
That said, I know it's fun to spin the heck out of the ball whenever possible, especially for fully-grown males, that's why I know this advice will never be taken to heart by 99% of adults I've ever met...hehe.
Look at many well trained juniors... The reason why they consistently make huge jump in levels is because they have spent years learning how to move to cover the entire table correctly, and not worry about spin, power, linear delivery, angle of throw, sponge hardness of their rubbers, etc. etc...I mean they learn to recover smoothly after each shot and to be ready in position for the best response for the next one.  Sustainability of strokes (aka consistancy) is way more important than how much spin or power a setup has.  Some kids use Joola, some use Stiga, some use Butterfly... The bottom line they all move equally well and their technique is picture perfect.  So my point is, as long as you master the required techniques and footwork you can make almost any equipment sing...
This valuable tips perhaps will not work well with Otai (me also Otai....hehehehee) in fact there little room of footwork improvement for them...shotcut solution for Otai is Long Pip...wakakakakakaa. I rather quit TT if i being forced to use Long pip...
see you @ P8 for multiball feeding, 6.00pm today or you 'll be sontot if late.....!!!

Cadangan LIGA P8

Assalamualaikum...

Cadangan untuk mengadakan LIGA P8 pernah dibincangkan sekitar bulan november 2010 yang lalu. Sehubungan dengan itu, saya ada mengambil inisiatif sendiri dengan membuat format carta pengiraan liga dan ianya sedia untuk digunakan sekiranya cadangan LIGA P8 ini menjadi kenyataan.

Oleh kerana bilangan ahli kelab kita yang agak ramai (+-50 orang), adalah dicadangkan supaya liga ini dibahagi kepada 2 kategori untuk memudahkan urusan pentadbiran dan melicinkan perjananan pertandingan itu sendiri. Saya mencadangkan supaya liga kita ini diadakan pada malam-malam yang tertentu sahaja dan semestinya bukan pada malam minggu untuk memberi peluang kepada ahli-ahli yang ingin balik kampung atau pergi bercuti.

Cadangan liga diadakan pada setiap hari berikut bermula pukul 9.00 hingga 12.00 malam :-
  1. Selasa (malam rabu)
  2. Khamis (malam jumaat)

Setiap pemain yang ingin menyertai liga diwajibkan datang pada malam-malam yang tersebut itu...dan ini tentunya memerlukan kerjasama yang jitu dari semua pemain. Tanpa komitmen yang tinggi dari semua pemain, rasanya sukar untuk kita menjayakan acara liga yang dimaksudkan ini. Kita mungkin boleh mengenakan sistem penalti sekiranya mana-mana pemain gagal menghadirkan diri lebih daripada 2 atau 3 kali berturut-turut...sekadar cadangan!!!

Cadangan LIGA P8 bermula 1 April 2011

Sekiranya kita benar-benar ingin mengadakan LIGA P8....maklumbalas dari semua bakal pemain amat-amat diperlukan.

Liga Bergu KLO STA Siri 2 - Ulasan Pertandingan

3 bergu dari P8 menyertai pertandingan ini iaitu Azam & Shahrul, Hanafi & Azman dan Megat & Izad. Pemain-pemain berkumpul di P8 pukul 6.30 petang, menjamu selera di Mamak sebelum bertolak ke KLO STA selepas solat maghrib.
Seperti Siri 1, pertandingan kali ini disertai oleh 25 bergu yang semuanya handal-handal belaka. Alhamdulillah untuk siri kali ini, bergu-bergu P8 telahpun bermain dengan baik dan memberikan persembahan yang bertenaga tetapi masih gagal untuk melepasi ke peringkat separuh akhir. Bergu Hanafi & Azman yang walaupun kali pertama digandingkan telah menunjukkan permainan yang menarik dalam ketiga-tiga perlawanan peringkat kumpulan. Mereka kalah 2 perlawanan pertama dan menang perlawanan terakhir peringkat kumpulan...Tahniah kepada Hanafi & Azman!!!
Bergu bidan terjun iaitu Megat & Izad juga berjaya memberikan persembahan yang membanggakan. Hanya sedikit nasib yang kurang baik menyebabkan mereka tewas pada 2 perlawanan pertama peringkat kumpulan walaupun sentiasa mendahului pihak lawan sepanjang perlawanan.
Regu Azam & Shahrul telah menjuarai peringkat kumpulan, mendapat bye di pusingan ke-2 untuk terus layak ke Suku Akhir dan berpeluang cerah untuk layak ke Grand Finale sekiranya layak ke Separuh Akhir. Malangnya regu tersebut telah tewas tipis (2-3) 9-11 di set penentuan Suku Akhir. Kekecewaan jelas terbayang di wajah Shahrul & Azam atas kegagalan mengambil peluang dengan sebaiknya.
Semangat dan kesungguhan yang tinggi yang ditunjukkan oleh P8 menyebabkan pihak penganjur telah bersetuju untuk tidak menghadkan kuota penyertaan kepada P8. Selama ini P8 hanya diberikan 3 slot regu...Terima Kasih kepada pihak KLO STA!!!
Kami bertolak balik ke Putrajaya lebih kurang pukul 3.30pagi.

p/s: Saudara Megat akan menjalani pembedahan pada hari Isnin (7/3/11) dan terpaksa gantung bet selama sebulan setengah. Kami mendoakan semoga Saudara Megat selamat menjalani pembedahan dan pulih sepenuhnya dengan kadar segera....InsyaAllah

Sekian lapuran untuk kejohanan ini.

Liga Bergu KLO STA Siri 2 : 5 Mac 2011

Setelah gagal semasa Siri 1, Team P8 akan kembali menyertai Siri 2 yang bakal diadakan hujung minggu ini dengan matlamat untuk memberi cabaran yang lebih baik kepada bergu-bergu yang sememangnya hebat di luar sana.
Cuma yang agak kurang bess nya, beberapa pemain utama P8 seperti Dr Hisham, Azroul, dan Hisham tidak dapat menyertai pertandingan kali ini disebabkan oleh masalah-maslah tertentu. Walaubagaimanapun, pihak kami tetap yakin dengan kemampuan pemain-pemain lain yang bakal menggalas cabaran untuk team P8.


Terima kasih diucapkan kepada pihak KLO STA kerana sudi memberikan kami 3 slot bergu untuk pertandingan tersebut, insyaAllah kami akan datang dengan semangat setiakawan dan kesukanan yang tinggi.
