      TIBOR KLAMPAR - First Speed Glue Player

      As promised Dan, find below videos of Tibor Klampar, European No1 in the 80s and the first top player to use speed glue, first video is a bit grainy but dates back to the time when the chinese had never really seen speed glue and they spent the whole match picking up the ball!!!....second match was against korean defender Li Gun Sang, top defender in the early 90s......Klampar was getting on a bit here and not the player he was, but can still see flashes of brilliance!!

      You can see watching Klampar where I got my backhand from.....and his lazy demeanor!!!.....use to watch this guy all the time!!

      The video really brought me back to the days when I was playing as juniors. I can still remember using the same colour rubbers on both sides, the smaller ball and the 21 game. The good old days. Thx for the videos. It brought back a lot of memories.
      To improve, we must enjoy the game and above all have fun

      Wonder when the 6" toss on service rule came in - Liang's serves are mostly straight off his hand!?

      Good vids though.

      It didnt come in til about 1985-88 I think, I seem to remember my coach telling me about the new 6 inch service rule when it came out when I was a junior.

      The toss rules came in in 1986, I remembered it clearly coz I finished my secondary school in 1985. I remembered the torpedo serve, where the serves came in super fast coz we didn't have to toss the balls. hehehe
