    Top 30 Excuses When You Lost A Match

    If you are a table tennis or ping-pong player, we always are going to find somebody of this kind! This is not even a joke! But I think I list most of them. I have been writing all I hear in a table tennis club. You will be laughing or maybe you will be using this excuses too.

    So here is how to use it:

    I lost today because_______________

    It’s quick, easy and effective! Just choose a number and complete the sentence

    1. glare off tables
    2. glare off opponent’s bald spot
    3. altitude
    4. temperature (cold or hot, your choice…)
    5. excess cho-ing
    6. my opponent’s lack of fight
    7. my bad glue job
    8. my opponent got too many edges
    9. lack of prize money
    10. concrete floor
    11. there were too many stray balls/lets
    12. I haven’t been training lately
    13. I must have over-trained, my feet were really sluggish
    14. I can’t play without speed glue
    15. my shoes were giving me blisters
    16. opponent’s coach was staring at me
    17. there was too much sweat on the ball
    18. there was too much sweat on my rubber
    19. my opponent’s illegal serves
    20. my opponent was unbelievably lucky
    21. the poor lighting
    22. lack of warm up
    23. crappy balls
    24. crappy tables
    25. my opponent’s “chicken-wing” style
    26. my opponent cheated
    27. the wall
    28. the shirt of my opponent
    29. the towel hanged on the barrier
    30. the new plastic ball

    We will post a second post with an upgrade version. And it will be like – I lost today because ________________and the/my _____________

    If you enjoy this post share it, with your table tennis friend, I’m sure they have something to say about it!

    I can say i have never used one of those excuses. My “excuses” go like
    this – I didnt execute what i had trained, i played “his” game instead
    of mine, i didnt train enough for my body to do what my head wanted, i didnt practise my serve enough, i didnt open up soon enough…. ………..
    I am sure everyone can add to this list. At the end of the day take responsibility for your game (or lack thereof).

    • Hahahaha! I almost believe you Tony! These ones are the Top 30, so after that it will be just real excuses….

  • Ken

    Yea those 30 top excuses are funny and I do hear some of them from time to time. How about this other common excuse, “I lost because I was not feeling well today, or I lost because of an injury”. I hear this more often but if same person had won with those pain or injury he would savor the winning as he cherish how beautifully he played. LOL!

    • Hahaha! That is good one too! I miss that one! The question is…”if you did not feeling well today, why you come and play?” and that is typical! But if they win…no pain so ever! Hahahah

  • Guys, wait until I write the 2nd version… it will be fun!
