Have you ever stopped to consider how elite table tennis players deal with the pressure of competition and consistently perform at their best? How do they summon and sustain their talent and skill when they need it, regardless of the circumstances? What does it take? What makes them so special? And how can you learn from their example? Your goal as an athlete is to get your body to do what is’s capable of doing under pressure. Take a second and consider this: the top complaint that players have is - “I can’t execute in com- petition, under pressure, when it counts the most!”

Each of us has our own unique peak performance “zone.” This zone has a very specific chemistry behind it – one you can train for and learn to control. This Fast Guide calls it your Game Face and gives you the tools to get in the zone. When you are in the zone, you can play your best table tennis on demand, when it counts, on a consistent basis. Get Your Game Face On! Table Tennis: A Fast Start Guide walks you though to build a personalized Game Face routine between points and helps you to manage stress during even the fiercest competition. Kathy Toon, a former Cal tennis coach, sport performance coach and a writer, the director of the Game Face Program and Dora Kurimay, a former Hungarian Table Tennis National team member and sport performance and mental skills coach, worked together and specially tailored this program in table tennis. This Fast Start Guide helps you to play your best table tennis and enjoy your game more.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Review of "Get Your Game Face On!" 11. Mai 2012
Von Larry B. Hodges - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
"Have you ever stopped to consider how elite table tennis players deal with the pressure of competition and consistently perform at their best?" That's the opening line of "Get Your Game Face On," the new table tennis sports psychology ebook by Dora Kurimay and Kathy Toon. It's a rather short book - I read it in an hour or two - but with lots of useful content. It covers sports psychology specifically for table tennis better than anything else I've read. It does so not just with theory, but with practical steps to improve your mental game and thereby your overall game.

The book points out four major problems that plague table tennis players, and then goes about giving systematic ways of combating them:
-Not being able to play as well as we practice
-Your energy level can be too high or too low

Central to the book is developing a "Game Face" (confidence, energy, optimism, calm), the inseparable relationship between emotional, mental, and physical (the "Game Face Performance Triangle"), and a "Game Face Routine," using the four R's:
-Reaction (use the 80-10-10 rule - 80% neutral, 10% celebration, 10% challenged response, i.e. instead of "That was terrible!" try "You can make that!")
-Recover (recover from the point, relax, etc., with nine methods listed)
-Ready (this is where you do your tactical thinking, with a very good listing of things to think about - "Think before you play")
-Ritual (to prepare mentally for the next point)

Throughout the book there are numerous real-world examples from world-class players. Often I was nodding my head at mental tricks that match what I'd developed over the years, or at recognizing something I'd see others do. The specific breakdown of how you use the time between points - the four R's - especially led to much thought that will influence my own coaching. The book should be a must for table tennis coaches and serious players.

Dora Kurimay was a member of the Hungarian National Table Tennis Team for six years and was six-time National Champion in doubles, singles, and teams. Perhaps more importantly she has a Bachelor's degree in psychology and two Master's degrees, in Psychology and in Sports Psychology. She has a long coaching background as well, both in table tennis and other sports. She now lives in the U.S. and at this writing has a 2388 rating. Kathy Toon coached tennis for twenty-three years, including at the University of California-Berkeley for fourteen years where teams she coached won three national doubles championships.

4.0 von 5 Sternen worth reading 22. April 2014
Von Ben Swift - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This e-book is a very short introduction to sports psychology written specifically for table tennis. It presents a simple, easy to follow system that any player at any level can use to play well under pressure. I gave four stars because it is so short that it feels a bit incomplete. There is no mention of what to do if you completely lose your focus during a match, or how to deal with gamesmanship from opponents.

But for the price Get Your Game Face On! delivers what it promises and is well worth buying and reading.

Well explained on the affect of our 'mental' and 'emotional' states on our 'physical' responses and performance abilities. The importance given to the 4'R's (Reaction, Recover, Ready and Ritual) within that brief time between Points, and responses to "Stressors" seen as CHALLENGES and not PROBLEMS was very informative.

I'm a senior player in my first year in the sport. I read the book in an hour or so the night before a club tournament and had my best result ever. It helped me to stay positive, not get down on myself and to focus better on each service or return. I will read it again before the next tournament. It can only help. I highly recommend this short but thoughtful read.

It is every simple but if you don't know it, it could cost you a game that you could have won easily.
