    Hello table tennis lovers forum!
    I´m called Svennemeg and I played for seven years when I was 12-19 years of age in Sweden. 
    When I was 16 I started to play good against the best players in my age group in Sweden. Then my friends in my club quit, so no fun playing after a while. Now I´m 43 years old and started to play again - Table tennis is so much fun!
    I directly went out and bought a super fast bat and tried to find familiar rubbers, but much have changed and also a new ball.
    Right now in the end of March 2020 I have played for ten months and started to move better. My goal is to be able to move my body as a fast chinese player, with a tricky sticky serve and a powerful and safe loopkill. Please help me get there quicker!

    Just switched to this slower bat, Stiga Intensity NCT and DHS Gold Arc 8 on fhand, Bhand I use Nittaku Fastarc G-1.
    I really liked Ma Lin playing style because of feeling and Wang Li Qin because his fhand loopkill, but there have been so many great players. When I was a kid Jiang Jialijang was the threat to everybody 
    Thanks everybody and especially thanks to ERT who is a great inspiring coach!

    Hello Fellow Table Tennis Enthusiasts,

    You can call me Maximus. I have lived in a few countries and my favorite is the U.S. where I reside at the moment.

    I first played ping pong when I was seven years old and played for four years. My paddle back then was made of cork but I loved hitting with it. I played using a penhold style. I picked it up again many many years later and decided to take it seriously, to play table tennis. I learned about spin and that changed everything. And when I came across EmRatThich's videos, that was a game changer. I have been playing seriously for the past two years and am now USATT rated just below 1500, making me about an average intermediate US player.

    I don't belong to any club but I do manage to play about two times per week. I live in Southern California, near Los Angeles.

    My best achievement was beating some much-higher-ranked players in a tournament all because of coach EmRatThich's videos. I have won a few gold, silver, and bronze medals but the best I've ever done where I really deserved the medal was Bronze, third place.

    I am a right-handed (RH) back-handed (BH) dominant player. I enjoy playing mixed doubles the most because it's a more strategic game than pure singles.

    I love my family, friends, movies, books, and riding my bicycle. And I'm passionate about table tennis like all of you.

    Hello from North Carolina, USA! My name is Steve, I am a retired teacher and play at the Asheville TTC now. For most of my career, I played out of the Raleigh TTC. I have been a tournament player since 1969. I maintained a U.S. rating of around 1950 as a forehand looper/backhand blocker for a number of years. After a layoff of about 10 years, I returned to the game and picked up hardbat play. I have been a full-time hardbat player (almost entirely against sponge players) for the last 15 years, and just recently I have been exploring a switch to short pips. My rating now has fallen to the 1750-1800 range, but I still aim for improvement!

    Hi everyone!
    1) Introduce yourself - my name is Jane, Quicksilver was my nickname before I left our league. Still sentimental about this, hah!
    2) Number of years playing - started as a kid, was playing "hard" during my college years since 2013 (almost three years), then left because of trauma. Now started playing again, but much more careful and less competitive - like, learning from the basics again.
    3) Club/team/country play for - don't belong to any club, though like I've already said - I've participated in our college's league.
    4) Best achievements - won some interior tournaments back in time and prizes, so our team got the "Best club of the year" title.
    5) Playing style - currently I do it for health and endurance, as a hobby not for ranking. But back in time I was considered as an aggressive player, hah. Right-handed, shake hands grip, quick attack.
    6) etc - came here for some casual tips, and to learn some tricks. Still have my Joola Phoenix.

    • My name is Andrew
    • Number of years playing: 15
    • Club/team/country play for: Serbia
    • Best achievements: 2nd place local tournament
    • Playing style: Penholder / right handed / offensive
    • Started at high school, picked up a blade somewhat penholder but after 2 3 games switched to shake hand and played shake hand for 15 years (because of some popular opinion that shake hand is better) until I decided to change to penholder and start training with a coach a bit more seriously and now I improve very fast and finally feel more confident in my game, also feeling the ball better when hitting hard.
