Coaching Tip of the Week – Ten Table Tennis Quotes for Improvement

(By Larry Hodges)

  1. “Tactics isn’t about finding complex strategies to defeat an opponent. Tactics is about sifting through all the zillions of possible tactics and finding a few simple ones that work.”
  2. “Strategic thinking is how you develop your game. Tactical thinking is how you use what you have to win.”
  3. “Tactical thinking is a habit you develop.”
  4. “If you couldn’t write a book about your game, either you don’t know your game, or you have no game.”
  5. “When you reach a new level in table tennis, it might take time before you win at that level as your opponents are tactically and psychologically used to that level, and you are new to it.”
  6. “Use in matches what you fear to use. Then you’ll get better at it and won’t fear to use it.”
  7. “Develop good serves and try to follow them with an attack. You’ll not only have better serves, but your footwork and attack will also improve. It’s a triple-whammy.”
  8. “When you win, learn why you won. When you lose, learn why you lost. Always learn.”
  9. “When you need to fix a weakness or develop a strength, for a time, focus almost entirely on that.”
  10. “If you aren’t having fun on the inside, you are doing it wrong.”
