Ten years ago it would have been virtually impossible to watch table tennis online. I doubt any websites were actually uploading matches and live streaming certainly wasn’t available. Even if they were, chances are your internet connection wouldn’t have been able to handle it! Your only options were buying DVDs (which would get very expensive) or going to watch games live (often not practical). Keeping up to date with the world of professional table tennis, as a fan, was pretty difficult.
In 2012 things are very different. There are loads of ways to watch table tennis online, for free. I really enjoy watching the professionals play and I think it can really benefit your own game and development, as you subconsciously take things in while watching.
In this post I will be listing and linking to some of the best places to watch table tennis online, both live and on demand. These are all the websites I use on a regular basis. If I’ve missed any good ones, please let me know.
