Hi, I'm Djole originally from Serbia but I live and play in Finland.

I played casual ping pong as a kid in my garden during summers.
But I've been playing more proper TT at the office for about a year now. Started beating everyone comfortably, except one club player co-worker.
One time I had a really good day , where I managed to win against him and he invited me to try at his club. That's where I've been playing since the summer started.

Still discovering my playing style. I'm giving looping a go. I'd say controlled offensive. But I also do well in retrieving and blocking. I use 2 inverted rubbers ( xiom vega intro 1.8 ) on xiom allround S blade.

I feel like my level is still beginner considering I've been playing at a proper club for only a couple of months.
But I am happy with my progress. I'm able to win sets here and there against the older more experienced guys now. When I started I had a lot of trouble with their serves and didn't have much tactics.

I work as a software developer.
I played a lot of different sports so far. But current other hobbies are some light gym, watching sports ( f1, tennis - go No1e, football).

I stumbled upon the forum while looking for equipment reviews or help with technique.

Looking forward to exchanging ideas, stories and advice.
I also have some unopened rubbers and unused blades that are too fast for me, which I'll attempt to sell in the buy/sell page.

Hello everyone,

I live in Prague but am originally from India. I would consider myself an intermediate (I started playing seriously again after almost 18 years) attacking style player with a stronger backhand than a forehand. These days I play at work mostly (atleast an hour a day after office hours) but am gradually running out of people who wants to play with me :D

Table tennis is a sport that really helps me deal with myself. I'm grateful that it exists :)

Hi Everybody!

I am from Germany, but currently living in France, where I recently joined a club after many years of abstinence from table tennis.
("Standard" topspin-oriented playing style, but also enjoying to defend a bit. Does that make me an "allround-style" player?)

I am physicist by education, and that is quite related to how I stumbled over this forum:
I like doing experiments, and one of the topics that fascinates me a lot is how the wood (blade) of a tabletennis racket has such a large influence on playing properties, even though it is covered by thick rubber and foam. So I would like to explore myself a bit by experimenting with building and testing blades.

I have already read quite a few interesting and informative posts today, and am looking forward to joining the discussion.
Initially my contributions will be mostly questions, often exposing that I do not know much about woodworking (although I love doing it), and later I hope to also contribute some original and informative laterial, based on the experience that I hope to make.

Hello,

My name is Chuck - I'm a dad of four, hence the name Dadoforhand (LOL). I reside in Fort Worth Tx, actually close to Texas Weslyean.

I'm the typical kid from the 80's who learned to play on a garage table with my brothers with not single one of us having any idea of proper technique, but all with cat like reflexes - so we had tons of fun on that table. There was no Youtube, we didn't know anyone that knew how to play, so we were really good hacks. Good paddles? 5$ Walmart specials. So...

I recently went to work where they have a lot of table tennis activity. So I was immediately pumped about playing again or learning how to play. With Youtube and online coaching of technique - I started learning proper stroke technique and footwork etc. I'm picking it up very fast because I also played competitive tennis for 30 yrs. Some of that transfers to table tennis and a LOT does not.

My goal is to learn, practice, and improve. Technique first, spins & control second, consistency third, Power last. I am here to share learn, ask a lot of questions and compare experiences. I hope everyone will show patience with me.

Thank you,
