Here's a sight you won't see to often! European Champion Dimitrij Ovtcharov is currently out in China representing team Jiangsu in the 2015 China Super League (http://www.tabletennisdaily.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?10544-China-Super-League-2015-(CTTSL)) and has just took on his coach/team mate at a penhold match!

Dimitirj Ovtcharov looks pretty impressive and even attempts a reverse penhold backhand throughout the match!


Looks like Dimitrij Ovtcharov is having fun out in China! Do you ever change your grip to shakehand or penhold in practice for fun?

I changed to penhold about 2 years ago. Now when I try to play shakehand for fun, I get the ball over the net 2-3 times at best.. It's almost stupid how fast the brain change something from beeing your main way of doing something to a complete mystery..

I cant play penhold... i think my forehand is okey but in my opinion it is hard to play a good backhand in penhold style ^^ well done dima
