      How foolish of me. Of course!

      I think a little more than shoulders width. So you can steady, and van bend the legs as much as you want. I think how much bending of the legs is equally important or more. I also feel that the you need more than shoulder width apart to be able to generate power from the legs by weigth transfer. To close and you Do not get the weigth transfer. To width is not good either, then i think you can not use the muscles well enough.

      Think it is much about how to be able to use the leg muscles the most and so width so you can stand steady and to be able to use the body in the strokes.

      For me it's not so much width as height.
      Returning serve, I want to start quite low to see the ball coming over the net. Once the rally starts I can come up a bit. But I accomplish this by bending at the waist and knees, not by widening my stance. Most of the time my stance is a bit wider than my shoulders.

      So the formula is correct.

      - When playing matches, (about) how far apart should your legs be?
      - What should be the "shoulder-width to space-between-legs ratio" be (considering the shoulder-width to be 1)?
      - Does it depend on the player's height, or is that ratio the same for everyone?

      - Also, what does having your legs farther apart help with (Agility, speed, stoke quality, weight transfer?), and should the same stance be kept throughout the whole match?
      - If not, when should the stance change?

      Keep it a bit wider than your shoulders and be natural. That will be good enough, no matter your height and the table distance. No need to think about it while playing.

      Having legs apart helps weight shift, like running.

      Insert the following:

      p = bra size

      and you will stand in the correct way forever allowing you to hit five topspins more a day (can't be accumulated).
      Being a guy, I don't know what to put for p because i dont know what size my training bra is.

      It is amazing what a busy mind can do when there isn't TV or video games to distract and waste time.
      Atas Newton identified the formula. I just wonder what problem Euler was trying to solve.

      Euler famously took credit for a lot of the work that was done by his students. So, I guess, the problem possibly could have been who can I exploit next?

      I just watched a badminton video which gave some information on footwork and center of gravity and why it's better to stay low, which I thought was really interesting and thought that this information could apply to table tennis as well, but I'm not sure.
      The dude who was talking about the techniques said:

      Keep a low center of gravity because:

      -It allows you to move quicker
      -It allows you to change directions quicker
      -The size of your step is bigger, which means that you don't need lots of steps to get into the optimal position to hit the ball

      Here's the video: https://youtu.be/zsvcNQgxlyY

      Okay. These give you some idea and some understanding. You should note: the width of the feet is not a constant; it changes based on the actions the player is doing.







      Note: video 4 talks about small steps! Not big steps.







      Those should help. They are worth watching.

      Calderano has a "nervous" stance and mood, "McEnroe" type, with "Nadal" type preparation and concentration gesture ceremony.
      Good videos above and watching the top pros is helpfull, but to beginners and intermediate club players I would always recommend to take the ball with the "feet on the ground" style rather then "on the fly". It may come later with the experience, but for developing proper techniques with efficient consistency feet on the ground is better.
