CONTENT OF THE LESSON

LESSON 1 – TABLE TENNIS 

Table tennis is considered as a bat/racket game and it is played at a professional or amateur. The simplicity of the game and easy improvisation of facilities and equipment make the game very attractive for pastime.

The game is played by a minimum two people in form of singles and maximum of four people in form of doubles or mixed doubles.

The game takes place on a hard table divided by a net.

 

BASIC SKILLS/TECHNIQUES 

1. The grip

The bat (racket) should be regarded as an extension of the hand, therefore a correct and practical grip is of prime importance.

 

 

The two different types of grips are:

  • Shake hand grip (horizontal grip)
  • Penholder grip (vertical grip)

 

2. Service

The table tennis serve is the most important stroke in the game because it provides the only situation in which you have total control over how and where you play the ball.

However, before you can master the correct table tennis serving technique, you’ll need to ensure that you’re using the correct table tennis grip and that you’ve mastered the four basic table tennis strokes.

  • Pre – serve
  • Planning to serve
  • The toss and strike

 

3. Forehand

It is a stroke used for rally or continuous play using the forehand side or face of the bat.

 

4. Backhand

This stroke is used for rally or continuous playing using the backhand side or back of the bat.

 

5. Scoring

A match is played best 3 of 5 games (or 4/7 or 5/9). For each game, the first player to reach 11 points wins that game, however a game must be won by at least a two point margin.

A point is scored after each ball is put into play (not just when the server wins the point as in volleyball).

The edges of the table are part of the legal table surface, but not the sides.
