Sean O'Neill Teaching the Fundamentals

Here's a nice YouTube video, reviewing some fundamental tips by Sean O'Neill. I think there is some great advice even for experienced players who may sometimes slip back into bad habits from time to time. I'll be checking to make sure I've been following these techniques when I play tonight!

We also talk about his transition to coaching as well as his other responsibilities he holds, ranging from TV commentator to webmaster. With his great experience and knowledge in table tennis he shares insight on the state of the sport from when he started, up until today, and what he sees for the future.

Table Tennis Points

Another great compilation video on YouTube by Calcutta75.

Aside from a great selection of points, I like how the camera angles are all from the corner, instead of the typical overhead, straight forward angles. It's a much better way to see how fast the shots are and how difficult they are to pull off. ITTF TV, I hope you're taking notes!
