How to Make Your Strengths Stronger with Serve and Receive

(by Larry Hodges) How to Make Your Strengths Stronger with Serve and Receive Excluding serve and receive, what’s the strongest part of your game, or the part that you want to make the strongest part of your game?

Tip of the week: Develop Power Timing by Slapping

(By Larry Hodges) Tip of the week: Develop Power Timing by Slapping Power in table tennis comes primarily from timing.

Tip of the week: Tactical Thinking Between Points

(By Larry Hodges) Tip of the week: Tactical Thinking Between Points Everyone has their own tactical thinking ritual . . . or doesn’t have one. If you don’t, you should.

Tip of the week: Are You a 10-8 or an 8-10 Player?

(By Larry Hodges) Tip of the week: Are You a 10-8 or an 8-10 Player? Some players play best when their back is to the wall – when they are down 8-10, they come alive and play like champions. Others are best when they are ahead and have more confidence in going for their shots […]
