Taiwan has become a popular destination for many and I'm on a mission to make sure more and more people know of table tennis in Taiwan.

Here I posted of Aus U19 and U17 no 1 players.
After a month at Taiwan's top team (Cathay Life), the girls are now at our base.
I took them around to a neighboring school, a place where Lin Yun-Ju spend quite a few hours a day hitting the ball:

Here is some training footage from today:

For general public, where would you recommend to go in both Taipei and Kaohsiung?

Would places be even open during Xmas to New Year period?

I don't know KH as well as I know Taipei.
If you just looking for a place to knock, there is a TT map for the whole country

This is Taipei.

This is Kaohsiung.

If you can read Chinese, there is a drop down list to choose the city and it would give you all the places to play, and information.

If you looking for training, then let me know.

Hello, where would you recommend to go for the one-off knock up in a club, as i often go to Taiwan on holiday, and quite often have the urge to play. We are based in the Wenshan District, Taipei so it would be ideal to find one near there.
Here you go,
Seems like quite a few places to play.

I suggest before you come, give me a message and I can post on Taiwan TT chat and ask around to see if there are anyone near you and take it from there.

Really interesting!
For this drill @Tony's Table Tennis - whats the rational to rolling it in bouncing on your side first?
thank you.

medium long ball, coming in soft/short, 2nd bounce near white line.
change of timing, need to go low down and to be careful not to arc the ball too high.
different way to brush the ball - pure spin and no hitting

This is a drill I do with kids normally.
But I saw some issues to fix, so implemented drills to work on certain issues.
Have to say, Australian TT level has increased compared to my visit there 10 years ago.
