An Introduction to Ping Pong (Table Tennis)

Ping Pong (Table Tennis), An Introduction to

Ping-pong, the trademark name often applied to the sport of table tennis, is played with wooden rackets, a net, and a cellulite ball. When played at competitive levels, this sport demands extreme levels of agility, coordination, and stamina, as well as split-second timing and expert tactical maneuvering. In this program viewers are first shown several techniques for familiarizing themselves with the equipment and basic skills required for competitive table tennis. They are introduced to Goba, a game that promotes rapid hand-eye coordination and quick reflexes through use of wooden paddles strapped to each hand. After learning how to enhance their physical conditioning and agility through several individual and team exercises (including "shadow play" and a demanding, table-circling regimen called "The American"), viewers are shown the two most common table tennis grips, the Western "hand-shake" grip and the Asian "over-the-top" grip. Through use of close-up and slow-motion photography, viewers become familiar with the fundamental strokes used in table tennis, including the service, the forehand and backhand strokes, the undercut or slice, and the smash. Viewers learn proper foot positioning and the importance of repetitive skill development and disciplined training. The program ends with exhilarating footage of several singles and doubles matches from actual tournaments; viewers will marvel at the unparalleled athleticism and intensity of this sport when played at world-class levels. 00/09DE IJSCA 30 min.
