Are DVDs still cool? I can’t remember the last time actually bought a physical DVD! Anyhow, if you are after some top quality table tennis instruction you’ll want to find the best table tennis DVDs and training videos.
Perhaps physical DVDs are a thing of the past, but online training courses and videos are growing fast – that rhymes. I’m sure we’ll be seeing more top players and coaches moving their teaching online over the next few years. So, in this article, I will be sharing some of my favourite table tennis DVDs and linking to some great free training videos and instructional courses.
Here’s a list of my favourite paid table tennis DVDs and training videos. As far as I know, all of them are from the USA.
by Samson Dubina
I reviewed USATT coach Samson Dubina’s table tennis DVD back in February 2015. If you’d like to read that please click here.
To summarise, this is a fantastic DVD that covers pretty much all aspects of the game. It is professional filmed and edited. It is aimed at intermediate players who have mastered the basics but still have plenty of areas to improve.
Samson is a high-level table tennis coach and player who is able to explain important pieces of information simply and concisely. This is perfect if you are looking for an overview of everything you’ll need to master in order to become a solid player.
by Brian Pace
I had Brian Pace on the podcast back in December 2015 to talk specifically about this shadow training DVD. If you’d like to listen to that please click here.
This is probably the most unique and innovative table tennis DVD I’ve come across. Brian has created a table tennis cardio workout that will boost your fitness and help to perfect your technique all at the same time.
I’ve worked through this DVD myself and it is an absolute killer. If you are able to complete the full 30 minutes without stopping then you are a table tennis machine.
YouTube has opened up a whole new world when it comes to free, high-quality instructional videos. Back when I was a kid learning to play table tennis I would have killed to have access to the kind of content that’s available on YouTube today!
To get you started; check out the following channels…
There are also some fantastic full-length training videos uploaded as well.

Produced by Tibhar. This one is in English – which is nice!

This is just a small selection of what is available if you are prepared to search through YouTube. There are some really brilliant table tennis training videos with only a few hundred or thousand views.
I’m hoping to release a training video or course myself at some point. I had the idea of actually teaching a beginner to play over a few days and filming the entire process to create a How to Play Table Tennis in 10 Days course. One day I will make that a reality!
Until then, I hope that you’ve enjoyed this post and that you will invest some time and money into sourcing some decent instruction. If you are currently going in alone and figuring things out by yourself getting some insight from a great coach via a DVD or video can really speed up the learning process.
