Stretching and warming up correctly are extremely important as well. A proper warm-up and stretch should last 20-30 minutes and should consist of jogging/biking and stretching. Without warming up, your body is prone to injury. After stretching, try doing some drills on the ping-pong® table to get your feet moving.
Getting an adequate amount of sleep the night before a tournament is also quite important. You definitely don’t want to be tired while playing. Not getting enough sleep can cause your mind to cloud up, causing frustration and poor match play.
Following these tips will definitely help you to perform your best in your next table tennis tournament.
