Abstract

Video analysis was performed during the Asian Cadet Table Tennis Championships to determine playing style and patterns of top and lower ranked nations. China and Qatar were chosen for analysis based on their performance during the tournament (1st/2nd playoff and 7th/8th playoff respectively). Notational analysis techniques were implemented
to analyze 3 matches for each nation. Significant (p<0.05) differences were identified in serve and return placement and shot choice. Chinese players used a higher proportion of long return placement and a higher percentage of topspin shots compared to Qatari players. This preliminary study suggests that at cadet level, Chinese players exhibit a
more attacking style of play than Qatari players.
