The coaches have identified my forehand as the big area which needs improvement. So have been doing some multi ball to try and pick this up. I find confidence this varies on how I am feeling in terms of confidence, Table Tennis is very much in the mind. Anyway, my grip, position and timing all need adjustment. Backhand is going great, but I dont want to rely on this because against the better players will target my forehand.
Anyway, really enjoying the club. Met some nice people, everyone with a passion for Table Tennis.
I have been playing Table Tennis since an early age. My father David was my inspiration and introduced me to the sport. He played at a high level, and never gave me much of a chance during our games at the local leisure center. I reckon I can beat him now. Like my Dad, my favourite shot is the backhand flick - which is where I get the nickname 'mattflix' from. I play at my local club, Peter Masen Table Tennis Academy in Maroubra. My challenge is, as always, to improve the all important forehand.
