Course content

I coach a lot of beginners. It’s one of the things I enjoy doing most. There is something very rewarding about helping someone with limited experience develop into a great table tennis player.

I’ve put all my knowledge and experience of coaching beginners in this video course.

In the first section, I explain the best way to hold a table tennis bat, the best way to stand and the best way to move.

In the second section, I explain how to play the four basic table tennis strokes – a forehand drive, a backhand drive, a forehand push and a backhand push.

I also demonstrate 21 training drills you can do, which will help you improve.

The course is full of useful tips and common mistakes to avoid.

“Because the lessons so far have been an excellent introduction to playing Table Tennis and I feel like I have learned a lot about proper grip and proper stance before starting to hit the ball.” – Nazir Kazi, August 2016

“Really good course. I have been playing table tennis for a little while, but have never had any coaching, so still consider myself to be a beginner, although I can beat my friends! This course has definitely helped me work out what I need to do to improve – like holding the bat correctly and changing the way I stand! I’m ok with my backhand, but my forehand sucks – but now I know what to do. Coach Tom gives very clear instructions which are easy to follow. Highly recommend.” – Tom Jones, August 2015

“I learnt loads in this course and now know how to do the basics shots. I’ve noticed an improvement when I play, but now got to practice loads. Lessons are very easy to understand and Tom shows some useful training drills to do.” – Sarah Evans, September 2015
