Butterfly Table Tennis Question and Answer

Question:

Does your legs have to be more spread when you are further from the table? Or does it have to be the same whether you are close or far from the table? And also: how spread your legs should be? I see that all players have a different distance between their legs. Some are tall but still have very spread legs as some players shorter than them. And the opposite: some tall players have not that much spread legs as some short players do. I thought it was about how tall are you but from what I see, it isn’t. Would like to hear from you!
