In association with Table Tennis Australia

Starting to play some of the more advanced players at club. Taking a beating at times, but as long as I feel I am pushing them I am happy.


Have been playing one or two of the advanced players. This is great for my game because I like to see how they play, analyse different aspects to their game - such as position, serve, forehand, 3rd ball attacks etc ..... I find their usual service tactic is top spin serve, hope I pop it up, then hammer the 3rd ball. Even though I know they are doing this, I find it a little hard to stop at times. So lots of service return improvement for me to work on. I also need to work this strategy into my game, because it delivers lots of easy points.

  • I have been playing Table Tennis since an early age. My father David was my inspiration and introduced me to the sport. He played at a high level, and never gave me much of a chance during our games at the local leisure center. I reckon I can beat him now. His strongest shot was the backhand flick, which ironically is now my favourite shot. I play at my local club, Peter Masen Table Tennis Academy in Maroubra.
