How many levels are there in table tennis? 2, 3 or 4? And how to improve your level?

Welcome back to PingSunday, and I’m EmRatThich. Today, let’s talk about the levels and skills in table tennis.

5 levels in table tennis

So how many levels are there in table tennis? In my opinion, we can classify the table tennis level in 5 level categories.

 

 

1 Beginner level

At this level, we are learning how to control the ball. We didn’t know yet how to play with the spin. So without spin, no power, and no control.

Beginner level in table tennis - learn the spin

2 Intermediate level.

At this level, we know how to spin. We have control, but lack of precision, and power. So many unforced errors and we need to improve the techniques.

Intermediate level in table tennis - learn to improve the consistency

3 Advanced level

At this level, you master the techniques. Know how to spin with power.

Advanced level - master the spin and power

4 Professional level

At this level, you can impact a fast and spinny attack with just a very short gesture. Power and speed are the main focus at this level.

5 World-class level

At this level, you master both control speed and power. You have a great feeling with the ball and can attack it in any situation.

To win at this level, you need to focus on the variation, tactics, intelligence.

Don’t hope for an easy point. At this level, the opponent won’t miss the rally. The best way to win is to “play smart”, and “variation”.

Ok, so there are 5 levels in table tennis (Beginners, Intermediate, Advanced, Professional and World Class Level). But my question is how to improve my level?

What is the “level gap” in table tennis?

Firstly, you need to jump the “level gap”. But what is the level gap?

As in many sports, your level improvement is a function of time. In general, the more time you play, the higher the level you improve.

Evolution of table tennis level during playing time

This is the evolution of your table tennis level during playing time. At each stage, there is a gap. From beginners to intermediate, there is a level gap, and so on.

The black curve is the normal level development curve. You improve your level and skills during your playing time.

Sometimes, it’s very difficult to “jump” this gap to go to the next level. if you play table tennis for a very long time, but your level won’t improve.

The reason is, you don’t know how to “jump” the level gap. And you stay at the same level. So you are on the red curve.

level gap in table tennis exist between every improvement stage

Some players play table tennis for more than 5 years, 10 years, but still at the intermediate level. They don’t know how to go to the next level.

So “jump” the level gap to go to the next level is the key. But how? Well, here is a simple way to do that. One of the simple way to reduce the level gap is to learn from your mistakes. I will explain it later.

Hope all the best for you and your family.

depend on your guide, my lever is intermediate. I play with Primorac 5ply wood, fh : dhs pf4 40+, bh : sanwei T88 taiji plus for 1 year. Is it good combo? I’m considering about upgrade my blade with Nittaku Aucostic Inner Carbon and stick with it for now to the end of my career due to Primorac a little bit slow for competives. ( I’ve refered your post about 10 best blades). Should i ???
Thanks for your shares and hope to see your advise!

I’m at about a 2200 level and want to get to the next level and I struggle with return of serve (particularly reverse pendulum) from
Left handed players but also right handed players who have good services. How can I improve this? The average strike in TT is 3.5 strikes so obviously serve and return of serve are critical elements of game
