Klick Show this drill to see description. Numbers in circle corresponds with strokes numbers in description.

Two direction vectors are used when the same stroke should be played repeatedly.

All exercises are created and described for player on the bottom of the figure. The other player (the training partner) don't have a specific exercise but sometimes his skills must be higher that another one.

If it is not mentioned directly that a specific pattern should be followed and/or repeated, after a few strokes, the rally can be completed. The drill could be also immediately stopped after last described stroke and the same exercise can be repeated again and again.

Duration of a single drill should be at least 5 minutes but not longer then 10 minutes. Most of drills begin with sequence: short service->flip or short service->push. The reason is to drill in short service, as the most common service type in modern table tennis. Short service is safe and is best preparation for third ball attack.

If player could not perform a short service or partner is not able to flip and/or push, it could be replaced with other service type that may be simpler for beginners.
