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,

Hi all

My name's is Mason and I am 15 years old. I live in Missouri USA.

My playing style is kind of a mystery to me but I think all around would be fitting. Backhand is mostly chops and and blocks and forehand is a variety of fast topspins (loops?) and back from the table chops.

I about only play with family and friends but would like to try a tournament someday.

I found this forum looking for advice on equipment and technique.

Hello everyone,

From Chicago, US. 38y/o
I haven't joined a club yet, but looking at Experior near Chicago.
I used to play pretty competitively for a few years in high school.
But, back then, the games were to 21, the ball was smaller and you could hide the point of contact when serving.

I recently bought a table and robot and have been loving it so far (my shoulder...not so much)

Penhold. I am not sure what my style is but I like to focus on ball placement and chopping/sideswipping incoming topsin with TPB.
I like the whole deception angle of table tennis.

Probably intermediate

I have an online business

Checking for anti rubber reviews.

Hi folks,

I'm a 24 y/o novice from Brisbane, working in IT/development and learning to play with LP; hoping to join the seasonal fixtures soon. I've got a habit of being an EJ in all aspects of life, but I'll be sticking with my current setup now.

Just here to lurk and maybe ask some questions down the line :)

Hi everyone!

This is Tohid (28). I'm from Iran and I live in Oslo, Norway.
I played for around three years when I was in high school and then stopped playing for 10 years. I started again in September 2021 and since December 2021 changed my style from two-winged looper to close to the table long-pips.
I've been experimenting with different long pips and recently frictionless anti. But the plan is to go back to long pips after this season ends in a month.
Currently, I have 1719 TTR here in Norway and would be happy if you check out my YouTube channel - just uploaded my first video :D
I'm a last year Ph.D. candidate in Marketing and am looking for relevant jobs now.
I am either playing video games or reading about table tennis in my spare time!

Cheers!

Blade: I'm going to build one!
Hello all. My name is Harry, im from northern Ireland. I play table tennis purely as a hobby and have done since I was about 5.

I just started experimenting with play styles and have started to stick around two-wing looper.

I unfortunately have not bothered to invest in a custom paddle due to their high price and the low level I am playing at but am looking at options around £60 (about 100 aud) - for a complete paddle that is - if any of you have good ideas

Would also appreciate some help with the following forum i have just posted
viewtopic.php?f=9&t=39847

thanks all. have a good one

Hi guys

It's Luke, new here. I have always been eager in table tennis but I never had the chance to play it seriously. It is very good to be here, Hope to learn from everyone and start my journey. I am a little confused about table tennis and ping pong differences also. Could anyone help me with that matter?
