amateur players. Let’s feel the “Amateur” level in China and Have fun!

  1. i am chinese. Not weird. just a habit. Girls and beginners here often like to use this style. But feel this style is less ambitious than normal one.

  2. I thought in table tennis, chinese style is the world standard no matter how it looks like?

  3. this is a tournament for amateuer in Xi'an city.

  4. 1:09 dude's missing an arm and could still whoop your ass

  5. You guys call this dude coach? Real coach would not say that's weird propbably he didn't watch a lot of TT games. I would say these people in the video have some experience but not experienced. Just like when you see ordinary brazilians playing soccer on the Rio's streets, you would say they play much better than many countries' national team.

  6. Not sure what's supposed to be so "weird" about these players' styles. I see much weirder stuff all the time in the US.

  7. Can you pls stop calling yourself coach if your vision is so narrow? If you can't point out what is weird with their forms what's the point making judgement? ??

  8. great video…..btw can i know da source of da background music

  9. 为什么开始是秃头

  10. penhold. nothing new here.

  11. they all look normal but you sound weird

  12. What is weird for u? Stupid

  13. Actually,things changed. At present,most people they love basketball very much instead of table tennis.

  14. fucking Idoit,read more books you dumbass

  15. weird? that was fantastic play

  16. If this is amateur then I always have a dance with my racket… I have lost my total confidence…

  17. 1:45 I can't even score a single point against that dude with only one arm…

  18. Lol that's not even weird, you r the weird one.

  19. Don't be fucking ignorant. This style of holding the bat has been in fashion since, what, table tennis was invented? Some players prefer this style (maybe because they grew up with it). Others prefer the "chopper" hold. There is nothing weird about it. In fact, it offers a very speedy backhand reply. Do your research before calling anything weird.

  20. Chinese doesn't speak good English; they clearly don't understand what AMATEUR means, look at this guys, they play like Olympic champions.

  21. Come on. This is common style in Asia not Chinese only.

  22. 單手的太強了

  23. Oh no,that's not weird in CN,everybody even a kid knows that style bro

  24. It is not weird …

  25. whats wrong with ur english

  26. "Weird" video caption in 2017!!! RACIST PEOPLE FEEL ASHAMED FOR YOU

  27. why is it even weird? its just another way of holding. the bat is diff as well. handle is shorter.

  28. Nice BGM, really takes me back to the sweet 90s.

  29. 2:12 you're suppose to serve behind the table, right?

  30. reporting this video for clickbaiting, this doesn't look amateur at all

  31. it's pretty standard and normal

  32. well they are amateurs. I'm from china and I've seen my dad and some other people at his age playing at the same level as shown in the video. China invented table tennis so no surprise their people lead in the sport. Chinese might not win strength battles but definitely mind games and games that require agility. China invented TT so I wouldn't say their style is weird

  33. the handling is not weird it's old school style, check back 70's 80s' ping pong world tournament and you will see it. you sure they are amateur?lol

  34. I watched this full video for some obscure reason…

  35. Geez, all those illegal serves.

  36. Nothing's more weird than your voice

  37. It's just the same as basketball in America. Even amateurs are good.

  38. If you call them amateur then I'm at infant level

  39. It not weird for me, some people in my country also use this style

  40. there is nothing weird to me

  41. I hold the bat , leave the handle to play .

  42. If these guys are amateur then I am nothing!

  43. what's "weird" abt this tourney?

  44. I fail to see the weirdness in their play. Of course chinese are good at table tennis. Their national sport. Chinese amateur basketball, tennis, baseball and football players would marvel at US amateurs in those sports. The same as most would marvel at India cricket and field hockey. European and South America soccer. Etc.

  45. Everyone of these players would probably beat the best player of my club (1675 QTTR) and I myself would have no chance at all lol (1054 QTTR)

  46. These Amateur players are way better than the pros of many countries ?

  47. The only weird thing on this video is the Title.

  48. the title might as well have put "racist" in the title.

  49. türk gücü bi kalp alırım reiz

  50. You edited all the weird ones out… There were at least a dozen pips players in this tournament.

  51. Wait these are amateurs?

  52. I am number 200 in greece and I say for sure I can easily beat all of these guys …they are unskilled …. ma lin and whang hao were some well respected chinese style players

  53. Don't think they're that weird ! We see some in the UK. Most are quite stylish – they seem to have good touch/feel – nice clip !

  54. they are no amatures….

  55. This is a national competition for amateurs in China. the video shown is the match in Xi'an zone, a southwestern division of this national competition.

  56. respect to the 1:08 guy

  57. the one armed guy is OP

  58. The match starting at 5:15 seems like a fun match to watch

  59. I don't see any weirdness at all. some of them are semi-pro obviously

  60. Why so many dislikes?

  61. The only weird thing I see in this video is this tournament mixed all categories that shouldn't compete together.

  62. Why you. Raciest to Chinese people

  63. When you feel like you've reached "amateur level" … and then you see "China's Amateur level" 🙁 … I feel like a beginner again.

  64. That dude with one arm should compete in the paralympics.

  65. No no your are worng

  66. total clickbait title, doesn't make any sense whatsoever. you're just showing random rallies…

  67. They are amateurs but they are better than the national team of my country

  68. Penhold Grip. i use the same grip

  69. Nothing weird about this. I have seen the same styles in Australia. Its universal amongst amatuers i would in fact say. It may be weird in the sense that the technique is not professional but thats all.

  70. They are so good lol

  71. Chào ng ae VN :)))

  72. So ignorant! The penhold style favoured by the Chinese dominated table tennis for decades and was adopted by many western players. But as the West improved the handshake style which allows for an easier backhand reasserted itself and was adopted by many Chinese and other Asian players.

  73. some illegal serves going on there

  74. Maybe the one arm guy is weird

  75. There is nothing weird about this style. I have been playing this way for more than 30 years already


  77. I. Play. With. That style

  78. I wonder why would so many people (204 at this time) give this a thumbs-down? It looks like good quality TT to me.

  79. I bet it's illegal to come in a blue shirt 😛 😛 😛

  80. in nepal.. we also play like thid

  81. It’s called pen hold

  82. How tf is this amateur??? These players are insane!!

  83. How stupid u r to use a title like that

  84. ‘piao liang’ means nice shot in case u wondering ?

  85. Man I never knew this but this is always the way I've played table tennis

  86. ignorance is weird u dumb shit

  87. you call penhold as" weird" ? you sure you can use your normal style to defeat those kids or grandpas?

  88. 现在用直板的很少了,许昕是一个,在没别的了吧,老一辈都是这么打球的,直板的反手很难

  89. I like how they don't classify the players into age or gender group. And seems like all Chinese were born with table tennis skills.

  90. one arm man good. now i know there is something i can be good at even if disaster strikes

  91. I thougtht penhold was dying off.

  92. You jave to be kidding! Thats more like intermediate level

  93. Amateur this is advanced level in austria

  94. what is weird about this video?

  95. Ther are not ameture player

  96. ? 我喜欢乒乓。?
