Case Study – Injury and Accident in Table Tennis

Hello. Welcome back to PingSunday.

Table tennis, in general, is a very safe sport. However, since the pro players want to attack a very short ball. It’s very risky for your hand.

This is the second time I have seen an accident in table tennis.
This is the case study for the accident in table tennis.

Accident 1 – Tomokazu Harimoto

Do you remember this? In the T2 Tournament, Tomokazu Harimoto from Japan also made the same accident.

You need to be careful!

It’s very hurtful and painful to see an accident like that.

I’m so sorry for Karlsson Kristian. I hope that he will recover soon. I hope that we should learn this, and be careful when you want to topspin attack a semi-long ball.
