Themes - Ohio Winter Camp

Find out what you will be improving!

 
 
 
 
 
Ohio Winter Camp (December 28 - January 1)
 
Footwork…  Often times, when we hear the word footwork, we think of…  endless multiballs sessions with the coach feeding thousands of gutwrenching balls, dreaming of the ability to move like Xu Xin, wishing that we wouldn’t have gone to the McDonalds’ drive through, and somehow hoping that we will keep our 2021 New Year’s Resolutions!
Think Again!
 

The Perfect Stroke?

Take a "4-QUESTION-TEST" to see if you have perfect strokes...

During tournaments, I hear many players commenting about various strokes…
“He has good strokes!”
“His strokes are wrong!”
“How does he have a 2000-rating with strokes like that?”
“His loop is very smooth!”
“He won the tournament, but he doesn’t have the best strokes.”
“His strokes are old-school!”
“Wow, his strokes flow nicely together!”

The tournament published the draws the night before the event.  You found out that you are going to play against Hou Yingchao in your opening match of men’s singles at 9am.  You immediately take out your pen and paper and write down some note of how to play him.  You arrive in the gym at 7:45am and train accordingly. 
 
Just then…
 
Without warning…
