  • My name is Tahl Leibovitz and I'm here at SPiN, New York. I am a professional table

  • tennis player who has been competing internationally since 1995. I am here today to speak to you

  • about the intermediate and beginner aspects of the Olympic sport of table tennis What

  • I'm gonna speak about now is the three different points on where to hit the table tennis ball.

  • Um, when I refer to points, I refer to the distance of the ball. What that simply means

  • is that we have one where the ball is bouncing and it's on its way up. When we have this

  • type of ball, the ball bounces, it's on its way up, we need to use quick, fast strokes,

  • to be able to hit that ball. Quick, fast strokes to hit that ball. The second point is when

  • the ball is already at its highest point. So once it bounces, and it's at its highest

  • point, we need to use a very relaxed technique and we can do many different things with the

  • ball when it's at its highest point, we can hit different parts of the ball, we can hit

  • the side, we can hit the top. And the third point is when the ball is on its way down.

  • When the ball is on its way down, we need to use a large forearm movement or our hands

  • should be moving a little bit longer because the ball is here and it's at the top and now

  • it's falling down. And what's really important is that in these heights, when the ball is

  • falling down we can play it at any point but we usually let it drop a little bit. Um, the

  • three points of the ball, a lot of top players are unable to play at all three points so

  • I would recommend that you practice these three points, you practice when the ball bounces,

  • and it's coming up, when the ball is at its highest point and when the ball is dropping

  • down.
