Online table tennis lessons

There’s lots of table tennis coaching videos available online. These are very useful if you don’t have access to a coach. Even if you do have a coach, these videos may offer a different perspective or teach you something new.

Below are links to some of the best coaching videos that I have found. If you know of any other good ones, please email me at

Tom Lodziak’s YouTube channel

I’ll start with my videos! I have lots of video lessons (5-15 minutes) which I post to my popular Youtube channel. My videos cover technique, tactics, service, receive, training and more. Many of my videos also feature other top coaches and players.  I add new lessons every month and all the lessons are free to watch.

Table Tennis Daily Academy

Probably the best online coaching website available (you can read my review here). The Table Tennis Daily Academy includes a range of coaching videos on technique, tactics, service, returning serves, psychology and training drills. New content is added every month. You do have to pay to access the site (£9.99 per month or £99.99 per year), but the quality of the videos is very high and the coaching from Dan and Tom is excellent.

Alois and Jeff from PingSkills are the masters of online coaching videos. They have created hundreds of videos over the past 10 years on every aspect of table tennis. What I like about their videos is that they explain everything very clearly. Lots of the videos are free to watch. Others you have to pay a membership fee to access.

Table Tennis University

And then there is the full online training program. This is the most comprehensive online training program available. It includes 52 lessons, 148 drills and 60 answers to commonly asked questions. You get access to a lot of video content and the views of a very knowledgeable Chinese coach.
