    He Zhi Wen Playing for Drumchapel

    Hi alli’ve been watching videos on YouTube of He Zhi Wen Playing for Drumchapel and of course thoroughly enjoying them.

    It made me wonder whether Drumchapel actually paid him to play for them. He surely wouldn’t do it for free. And I presume he had to live in Scotland during that time. There is very little money in table tennis and I wondered how it happened?

    I watched He Zhi When in brit league once. He played CHris Doran who is a strong player, but He was in 1st gear.

    Some great matches definitely. I think they had Eugene Wang playing for the team as well at some stage

    Think He only lost to Victor Brodd when he played that year if memory serves.

    He competes and does well at the Ping Pong World Championships which are played with sandpaper bats. I think he might also be the world's tallest professional player, definitely one of them.

    I played He Zhi Wen whilst he was playing for Drumchapel. He barely dropped a set all season. Drumchapel were paying him per match and I believe he was also playing in the French League as well. So he was travelling between the two.

    I think he lost only 1 or 2 matches in his time playing in the Premier league overall . Amazing tricky service and hits definitely.

    It is understandable why he had so good season If he was paid per match..(not to mention the bonus per victory)

    Drumchapel had an amazing set of players coming in overall. Eugene Wang was ranked well when he played in the Premier as well. Lui Song I think played as well. Lovely to watch such good players turn out.

    His serves were the best I've played against. I'm right handed and his serve from the corner swung ridiculously wide and fast out to my forehand side. So I moved over to have a chance to reach it at which point he was played straight down the line to my backhand very quickly which was extremely awkward. He basically only used these two serves the whole match. I could count on one hand the amount of times I won points off his serve for the whole match! Usually when you play great serves it's the amount of spin which catches you, but with He Zhi Wen it's the speed and placement.
