I was born in a small city in China, where I have fond memories of watching people playing ping pong on the streets during my childhood. I first played table tennis when I was 6 years old in primary school during my PE class. I used a pre-made table tennis racket that I bought from a supermarket for around 2 dollars at that time.
When I was 8 years old, I started to learn table tennis formally in our school team, beginning with the basic forehand and backhand drive. Every summer holiday, we had an intense training season, training every day for the entire two months of July and August. At the end of each month, we had a selection match, and the top three players could enter the next level team. I worked hard every day to improve and train with high-level players, hoping to make progress and be among the top three.
After two years of mastering basic techniques like forehand and backhand drives and pushes, my coach recognized my talent for defensive strokes and suggested I become a chopper. I began using long pips rubber on my racket, but it required me to learn several new skills, including the technique for long pips and chopping, as well as continuing practicing basic attacking skills.
After graduating from primary school, I said goodbye to my first table tennis coach, who had a huge influence on my life. I then started training with our local provincial team, which was quite convenient as I live in Taiyuan city, the capital of Shanxi Province. The training was initially difficult, with six hours of technique training and two hours of physical training every day. The most challenging part for me was running 10,000 meters every afternoon.
At the age of 16, I faced a critical decision in my career. I had to choose between pursuing a professional table tennis career and continuing my education. If I chose to become a professional table tennis player, I would have to forego any opportunity for further education.
After careful consideration, my family and I decided to give up on my dream of becoming a professional table tennis player and continue my academic pursuits. It was a difficult decision for me because I have always dreamed of one day joining the Chinese national team and representing my country. However, I realized that in China, I was just an average player among many talented and younger ones. Giving up on my dream of becoming a professional player was painful, but it was clearly a more rational choice.
After turning 18, I enrolled in university and joined the school’s table tennis team. We participated in several important matches and achieved great results, with our most exciting achievement being reaching the semi-finals of the 2016 National University Games.
During my time at the university, I occasionally trained with the Tianjin Provincial Team and made many close friends who remain important to me today. Some of them have even gone on to join the Chinese national team.
At the age of 24, I decided to travel abroad and explore the world. My first destination was Spain, where I joined a club called Fuencarral in Madrid and began competing in the Spanish National League.
It was truly amazing to meet so many table tennis enthusiasts from around the world in Madrid, which is a highly international city. Despite coming from different countries, my teammates and I share the same passion for the sport.
In 2022, I launched this website with the hope of sharing the joy of table tennis with you and others. Even if we may never become top players like Ma Long or Timo Boll, the memories and excitement that this sport brings us are enough.
I sincerely hope that you can find your place here and that we can share our energy and passion for table tennis with enthusiasts from all over the world.
