  Table Tennis is a sport characterized by the high speed of play at which it is practiced, the constant decision-making process that athletes are faced with and the high levels of technical precision that they must possess when developing on a rather small playing surface. If you add to these aspects the fact that the points of tension and the situations that destabilize the athletes are presented in a recurrent way in the competitions, you haven enough arguments to understand why the tennis players make a lot of unforced errors in the matches. The present research exercise was framed in a methodological proposal that generated statistically significant results (p < 0.002) on the reduction of unforced errors in competition in a group of table tennis players.
