Tennis Tables

Posted: April 22, 2011 in Uncategorized

We didn’t learn any new techniques in class.  Luckily, I was able to advance my skills in a series omf friendly matches.  I’m finally fully comfortable with the smash technique and am ready to call myself an average table tennis player.  I can consistently beat a little over half the class, and can sometimes beat a little more.  Of course, the class’ ping pong titans (Michael, Junichi, Yusuke) can still crush me easily.  I can sometimes score 1 or 2 points against them, which I had been unable to before.  I think this unit, my main areas of growth were in my smashing and my positioning.  I no longer just sort of stand at the edge.  I’m always moving around the table trying to get advantageous angles to score many points.
