A Training Move by Michael Landers


Earlier this year I decided to move my table tennis training inside the gym that my trainer owns. I placed a top-of-the-line Cornilleau ping-pong® table along with a Newgy Robo-Pong 2050 table tennis robot inside the large wooden-floored space in the downstairs part of the gym. I have been training with the robot and lifting weights nearly every single day since.

Now, I don’t have to travel all the way to the city for training, and have a huge space with high ceilings to play matches with people in, unlike my house. Everything has been working out great thus far, and my friends at the gym are starting to see how much of a workout table tennis can actually be with the Robo-Pong. Having the Robo-Pong in the gym is great because it allows me to train by myself and also teach and correct others’ strokes without having to feed them balls by hand. A few people there already want robots for themselves and are looking into it!
