Table Tennis Tips

A real low and short no-spin serve can give you some easy points in matches, as they are difficult to flip hard, and they require good timing to push hard. Mix it up with a heavy backspin in the same spot. Remember to get it short, the ball should bounce short on your side close to the net...

 Table tennis Robots - The Ultimate Guide!


Note: Information in this guide will continue to be added as the table tennis community shares their experiences with others, and allow us to include it in this guide. So if you've used a robot, please share your experience and allow us to add your comments into this guide, so that others can benefit from your experience.


 Robots - practical considerations:

1. Easy of use
You may purchase the best robot in the world, but without knowing how to use it properly, youíve likely wasted you money. Some robots come with extensive manuals and support, whereas other come with just a manual describing the functionality, without telling you how to use it. Now if youíre a robot guru, or you know people that have experience in using it, this may not matter, but if not then this should be a major consideration.

Itís not just the setting of the robots thatís important here, itís also putting the robot together in the first place, and taking it apart (if required) thatís important, especially if you plan to move it around a fair bit.

Generally the simpler the robot, the easier it is to use or set up. For a single wheel robot, you can visually see whatís happening so the settings are logical and easy to understand. Adding a second wheel and things get a bit more complicated as you have to visualize how the rotation of both wheels affect the spin and speed of the ball. Youíd probably require a decent manual or set of instructions to help you along. Adding programmability to this makes it even more complicated, and a detailed manual and/or set of instructions becomes vital, and if not supplied may put you off buying this robot altogether!

2. Power
Surprisingly many of the robots currently on the market still do not have a universal power supply (a supply that accepts virtually all voltage/frequency setting of most countries). If you buy a robot locally, then chances are it will come with the right adaptor and power supply, suited to your country. If the robot you wish to get is either not available in your country, or is much cheaper bought from another countries, you should confirm if it comes with the appropriate power supply and adaptor. Unless the robot has a universal power supply, youíll generally need a power supply as well as an adaptor, as just an adaptor generally wonít do. You must ensure the power supply can handle the power required from the robot as well.

The 220-240V/50Hz (most of Europe/Austrasia) and 110V/60Hz (USA) seems to be the most common, but there are quite a number of countries with other standards as well. A good list of common Voltage/Frequency setting can be found here:
