to begin with, it is good if u already know how much u love table tennis.
the passion is the thing that will sustain u for many years.

if u not sure yet, will need to try it out for couple of mths first before
spending on more expensive gears.

East side tt places are Tampines sports Hall, Changkat CC & Tampines West CC (i think)
go to kaki, then East forum.

are u a playing penhold or shakehand?
How much are u allocating for the setup (equipment)?

Hi Yuna , I personally feels that I am quite passionate it but didnt get a chance to pick up this sport .
I have seen the TT places in the East but they are all experienced players . I'm actually looking into having some coaching classes first .
I'll be playing shakehand I guess, like you say I shall try out a few months first . So probably get the most basic first ? I'll have a budget of < $100 ?
Appreciate if you could give me some advice and may some affordable table tennis group lessons ? Thank you !

Hi Zovier , yes I am actually looking to have some coaching session first but most of them only have private lesson for people like me who want to pick up the sport at this age . And the private lesson are quite expensive . Am looking for maybe group lesson which is more affordable for me . I am staying at Joo Chiat .

Jeffree,
Your best bet is to look at Community Clubs for group session lessons. You can check it here: OnePA

By the way I've done a search for you already. The available courses are on page 2.

Yes polytechnic have them , will probably ask when my school starts in april . But they probably have some experience playing table tennis , so just wanna learn the basic before joining the club . Alright , yeah it'll be inconvenient for me . And do you have any bat to recommend me to start with ?

Hi dryvuuu , thank you for your advise and the link . The only CC in the East had started their class , so probably gonna wait till the next one to open first . At the meantime , do you have any bat to recommend me to start with ? Thank you .

I started off using an allround 729 pre-made bat (smooth rubbers on both sides) & I used it for about 1 year before I moved on to custom made bat. In a very short conclusion it served me very well. So if you ask me I would recommend the same pre-made bat or equivalent as I don't believe in spending too much on equipments. This is just my suggestion. I'm sure others have their own views & most likely someone will have already sent a PM & recommended something to you.

Oh ! i just remember that i have a new blade u might be interested.

its a Blutenkirsche B3001 blade. shakehand. new blade.
i bought it so others dun have to use shitty bat while overseas.
but in the end, i didn't get to use it at all. what the hell! hahaha

if u are interested, u can have it for $40 with 2 rubbers on it already.
one is Nittaku Renanos Bright black colour. the other is Gambler Six Shooter Red.

can sms me at 9061-9007 for self collection at East Coast Macdonalds (along the beach one)

i see if i have extras i dun use, u might get a 3rd rubber at no extra cost. Smile

U can pm me when your bat n table is really.
But it is advice to look for kakis or group.
Don't be afraid of other kakis r too good for u.
Their 'good' are own by themselves through yrs of practice .
U can only ask yourself : r u 'thick skin' enough to play with them?

At the end of the day is all about how much u can enjoy fr the tt session.
If zero, nothing then just let it be
Try on other group or kakis until u find a suitable one.

guys, if you are replying to another forumer's post immediately the next line,
there is really no need to quote most of the time (depends context)

as it makes a long read for others. don't you think so too?
