    There was a thread on this a few years ago, and the consensus was that being left handed is a great advantage for attackers (many more left handers in the top 100 than is reflected in the...

    I have thought having hardbat and sandpaper events kinda parallels the different court surfaces in tennis, but it is the paddle surface, not the table surface, that varies. Unlikely anyone would win...

    I find it odd that Ma Long loses to a European player and there is no discussion on this board. It at least warrants a question about his equipment :)

    I have had two cataracts replaced and wear progressive lenses. They were a bit of problem for TT, as the area of vision that was in focus was quite small. So I had my ophthalmologist prescribe single...

    I know the current thinking is to use a time out if you are ahead in an important game and the opponent scores a few points. But does this really work? It may just be the matches I watched at latest...

    Dima has that weird backhand push he uses anywhere on the table. I read somewhere he does this because it is more natural and allows him to be ready quicker for a forehand if needed. Maybe that would...

    If the OP really wants to see the difference, watch a match with one of the top choppers. You can clearly see when the attacker spins the ball (loop) and when they drive the ball (drive).

    The Discord channel is Eleven Table Tennis. I think the link is also visible in the game somewhere. The ball machine drills download quite fast, but it doesn't tell you that - the "downloading"...

  17. Any other medal sport at Olympics also recreation at village?

    I saw some pictures of the Olympic village and there were table tennis tables for the athletes to play on. Any other sport also just a game to athletes at the Olympics?

    I played hardbat on my backhand for many years, and echo what you have said. You can do most things close to normally, once you get the racket angle adjusted. But the ball returned to your opponent...

    There are adapters you can 3-D print or purchase that mimic the feel of a paddle. They also are constantly being improved to closely match the feel, weight, and balance of a real TT paddle.
