    The combination of forehand pips on forehand and an offensive rubber on backhand is not too usual.

    Tom Bazacas is the first table tennis player in Newport Beach who play with this combination.

    But, do you think playing against pips affect my game?

    The answer is YES!

    For my opinion the hardest part to understand playing against pips is figure out the timing. If you rush you can make many mistakes but if you have the ability to be patience and attack the ball with right placement. I’m sure you’ll have a better game.

    Without counting how the pips reverse the spin. Sounds confusing if you are not familiar with. But if you play against pips you will think you miss easy balls.

    Looks easy but they are not!

    Last Wednesday Tom made a fest with all the players and apparently his pips works perfect against the loop, smashes and even choppers.

    But this was not just the pips, it was a backhand loop too!

    The key was ball placement with this offensive backhand and offensive block with his Forehand, apparently this is how Ron Arellano loose his match.

    Congratulation Tom!

    See you next Wednesday TT players!
