Level 1: Starter Skills

Learn the fundamental table tennis skills you need to master before you can become an elite player!

Welcome to TTU Level 1!

Here, you'll learn the basic skills and techniques you need to master in order to excel at the sport of table tennis. No previous table tennis knowledge or experience required.

Level 1 is ideal for beginners as well as more experienced players who want to refresh their knowledge. It’s also great for parents who want to coach their children, for teachers who deliver table tennis classes in school, and for other coaches who want ideas on how to teach the core table tennis skills.

It's made up of two short courses.

1. Basics Mastery (with Coach Tao Li)

In Coach Tao Li's 'Basics Mastery' course, a young beginner student is instructed in addition to Coach Li’s demonstrations. We've found that watching Coach Li correct some of the common beginner mistakes is just as beneficial as watching him perform the proper technique!

There's also the added feature of downloadable training schedules for each of the twelve lessons, to help you plan and structure your subsequent practice effectively.

2. Table Tennis For Beginners (with Tom Lodziak)

With his trademark simple and clear style, Tom Lodziak takes you through 10 lectures designed to transform you from a beginner into an intermediate-level table tennis player.

You'll also gain access to 21 training drills to help you improve your skills.
