Who needs a robot?
No doubt everyone can benefit from the use of
a robot, if they use it sensibly. Some of the great benefits of table tennis
robots are outlined below, so if you want to be convinced, or need to convince
your parents or coach that a robot is worthwhile, read on and you will see the
#1 Ideal for practicing, fine-tuning and
speeding up your strokesAssuming you have learnt the basic strokes, you need to practice them to get
better. Robots are ideal for this, because they have the ability to give you the
same ball over and over again, allowing you to (1) practice the stroke, (2)
fine-tune the stroke, (3) speed it up once you have mastered it and (4) see what
effects some minor adjustment can make.
A real practice partner will almost certainly not
give you the same ball continuously, so if you start missing you will not know
if the ball came a little different, or if you made an error in you stroke or
footwork. Of course a real practice partner will also likely run out of energy
or will get bored...something you do not need to worry about with a robot!
#2 Makes table tennis fun and good for your
health, especially for kidsIf you are keen to get your own or other kids interested in table tennis,
then a robot is a real treat. Kids love this sort of thing. You can use it as a
treat after some serious training, or as a demo to get new kids interested, or
just have it around as a bit of fun. At starting prices similar to games
consoles, surely the use of a robot is a lot healthier for kids, instead of
sitting in front of a monitor for hours!
#3 Exercise and HealthIf you thought table tennis does not require much fitness or endurance,
think again! Once you have learned some of the basic strokes you will realise
you need a lot more than just an arm movement to play a proper stroke, and you
need to move your feet to get into position to play your strokes properly. A
robot setup to oscillate or programmed to shoot out balls to specific locations,
can feed you balls all over the table, over and over again, at a speed and
frequency of your choice. This will give you a great workout, for either losing
weight or gaining fitness and/or endurance. Not only will the weight loss and
improvement in fitness/endurance improve your game, but it will no doubt improve
your coordination and strokes enormously as well.
#4 A great aid for Group CoachingAfter speaking to a coach who does a lot of group coaching, it is clear how
valuable a robots can be. To keep costs down, only very simply robots can make
group coaching so much easier, and require a lot less helpers or other coaches.
You can simply set the robots up for a particular stroke that the kids need to
learn, and allow them to practice it over and over again, while you walk around
the group and offer advice where needed. In this case a few smaller robots,
costing only a few hundred dollars each, can be much more valuable then a single
more complex unit.
#5 Improve footwork and coordinationApart from allowing you to practice your individual strokes, most robots can
be set to oscillate or even programmed to shoot out balls to specific locations.
This can be highly valuable to practice your footwork, and speed it up once you
have mastered the basics. This again is especially useful for kids, and their
coordination is still developing, and footwork can be taught right from the
#6 To play when no partner is availableAlthough a robot is no substitute for a partner to play with, it sure is a
lot better than not being able to play at all!
#7 Practice to handle a weakness or a trouble
shot from an opponentFor those that play competition, you will know everyone has a weakness. Once
an opponent find this, and has the ability to use it against you, it can mean
the end of the game. A robot can be setup to play the balls you have trouble
with, so you can practice it over and again, until you you turn it into a
Similarly other players will have trouble with a
particular shot, and will try and to stop you from playing this shot. A robot
can be set up to play any shot, so that you practice how to generate a
particular stroke no matter what stroke your opponent gives you.
#8 Clubs facilityA club that has a robot available is a likely attraction for new players. It
can be a very important facility that you can offer to your members, and can
offer great benefits as outlined above.
These are the major advantages of robots, there
are no doubt others that can be added to the list. Apart from the initial cost,
there is no doubt a robot can be put to good use no matter what level or style
player you are. Robots like the Newgy 540 are priced similar to a games console,
and would no doubt offer many more benefits and plenty of fun, so they are well
worth considering. A home-made Youtube video of the Newgy 1040 robot:
