Coach Carl’s Column: Stance and Footwork Tip from Carl Hardin


Here’s a quick tip to help with your stance and footwork in table tennis:

You should lean forward in your stance enough to shift your body weight to the balls of your feet, the heels of your shoes start to come up off the floor and your stance wide enough that your body weight is shifted to inside of the balls of your feet. Since your weight is already on the inside of the balls of your feet, you can move quicker, farther and with better balance to execute your stroke.
