Cheap but Useful Table Tennis Training Tools

Cheap but Useful Table Tennis Training Tools

Many players asked me where to buy the training tools (ball holder and the string) after reading my article “How to train table tennis alone at home”. This trainer, robot, ball holder will help you improve quickly the timing, the acceleration at home (without any partner, coach). You only need a table, these cheap tools, and practice.

This training tool can be found in any store of “Body Build”. It’s a huge string to practice the physical force of the back and the legs.

This tool is useful to improve the force of the forearm or the acceleration of the backhand strokes. Again, I can’t find the exact article on the internet. Maybe it’s the local product in China. I found a similar article on Amazon: Elastic Athletic Stretch String (Check price)

The second model is from Huieson (check price). The Huieson model is the best ball holder that I’ve found. Because you can plug this one to the dining table and practice alone. The holder is also flexible and long enough, so you can change the position of the ball (high or low). The Gracefulvara model is too short, and it holds not very strong. It can be detached off the table if you hit too hard. While the Huieson model has the slug that you can fix it tightly to the edge of a table.

Dear Sir,
Is there an email i can contact you? The reason is because my game was fully formes through your videos from zero to a decent beginner now. I brought this Lanfire table holder to practice more of precision in accelarating into the ball. I am from India and moved to France recently.
I would like to have some feedback from you about how to improve further.
