Hi,
I am a member of the Palo Alto Table Tennis Club and a beginner in the world
of table tennis. I am looking for anyone who would be willing to practice
table tennis with me at the PATTC. I am available whenever the club is open.
I am serious about playing table tennis and improving my skills, therefore i
would appreciate response from people serious about improving skills only.
Thanks
Sid

I am sorry this is OT, but...  Maybe yoou should try with the robot first.
IMHO, the best way to start for an absolute beginner (or nearly so) is to
get a Newgy 2040 (there are more expensive robots too by for this purpose -
teaching beginner basic strokes, this one IMHO is adequate) and download the
about 40 lessons from their web-site and go through them carefully.  It took
me about 100 hours to go through them.

If you want to start out as a player with great strokes and
consistency, then a robot would be an excellent choice. Take a look at
