1 to 1 table tennis coaching

Tom Lodziak - 1 to 1 table tennis coachingI provide 1 to 1 table tennis coaching in Cambridge, UK.

I am happy to coach players of all standards and all ages.

For example, you may be:

  • A complete beginner wanting to learn the basic table tennis strokes
  • An improving player wanting to learn the skills needed to play for a local club or league
  • A local league player wanting to develop the skills needed to win more matches
  • An advanced player wanting to fine tune your technique and improve matchplay to compete at the highest level.

Benefits of 1 to 1 coaching

1 to 1 coaching is a great way to improve because the coaching is entirely focused on your game. You get all of my attention.

This is probably the quickest way to improve. I will work with you to identify weaknesses, and strengths, and then we’ll do lots of exercises to get you playing better and better.

I very much take part in every session, so you get the benefit of a reliable training partner. I can keep returning the ball (most of the time!), so you get the chance to play lots of shots to perfect your technique, footwork and consistency.

What does a 1 to 1 table tennis coaching session involve?

Typically, a 1 to 1 coaching session will last one hour and will involve a combination of exercises working on technique, service, receive, footwork, consistency, tactics and match play.

Most of the session will be spent at the table hitting balls, so you will feel as though you have had a good workout.

The focus of each coaching session will depend upon your own needs and speed of progress. If there is something specific you want to work on, just let me know and I will include it in the coaching session.

Frequently asked questions…

Can I book a one-off session?

It’s absolutely fine to book one introductory session to try it out and then book more sessions if you find it enjoyable and beneficial.

Can I book multiple hours of coaching?

Yes you can. I often have players visit me from other parts of the UK and overseas. In these situations, we often do 2 or 3 hours of coaching at a time or 5-10 hours of coaching, spread over a few days.

Players often combine coaching with a visit to Cambridge, which is an attractive university city.

Every player’s needs are different, so just email me with your requirements and I’ll do my best to help. The more notice you give me, the more likely it is that I will have availability for multiple hours of coaching.

Can I share the coaching session?

Yes you can. I often coach two players at the same time. I work with both players individually and set up training exercises both players can do together. The cost for a shared session is £30, the same as an individual coaching session.

Can I buy table tennis coaching as a gift for a friend or family member?

Yes you can. Let me know how many hours of coaching you want to purchase as a gift. I will the send you payment details. When payment is received I will send you an e-voucher. You can give this voucher to your friend / family member and he/she can make contact with me to arrange the coaching session(s).

Can I book onto a table tennis group training camp?

At the moment I am not organising any group training camps. Although this is something I may do in the future. In the meantime, take a look at my list of table tennis training camps in UK and Europe.
