Ask The Experts: Cherry Zhao No. 389

Butterfly Table Tennis Question and Answer Question: I’ve recently switched to Butterfly equipment and having a tough time adjusting to them . I have mostly a backhand flick attacking style of play and I am a advanced recreational player. Any advise on what I could do or drills I could do by myself to advance my game and adapt quicker? Answer:

This Ask the Experts question was answered by Coach Cherry Zhao. She is a coach at California Table Tennis in Rosemead, CA. Coach Zhao’s response is as follows:
Hi Tyler! 
 
This is a great combination, but it may be a little fast for you.
 
You may be standing too close to the table when you are attacking or you simply need to reduce some of your own power.
 
You need to take advantage of the racket’s flexibility and add only a little bit of your own strength.
 
Thanks,
 
Coach Cherry
