The free BUTTERFLY APP – Now available also for ANDROID!

Following the success of the mobile 2012 catalogue, Butterfly has been eager to continue to research and further develop the possibilities of using mobile Apps for table tennis.

With its extensive features, the aim of the Butterfly App is to provide ambitious players and coaches with useful tools to optimise their training programmes as well as raising their standard of play on an ongoing basis.

The result is the new, free Butterfly App, which has come about through collaboration with Butterfly coaches and its sponsored players.

Similarly to our players:



The App will be updated and further developed regularly. It comprises 3 modules:

Module 1: Exercises
Module 2: Tracker (soon available for Android)
Module 3: Catalogue


On one hand, the “Exercises” Module comprises a total of 65 one on one as well as multiball training exercises, which will assist table tennis professionals in maintaining a high degree of ball control as well as refining their technique. They have been compiled by Danny Heister, Dirk Wagner and Richard Prause and are presented by our sponsored players in a series of video tutorials. On the other hand, animated demos assist in enabling players to learn and assimilate the exact playing sequence of each exercise (soon available for Android as well).



In a further feature, Andrea Todorovic demonstrates essential strength and stretching exercises. Richard Prause: “During both training and competition it is essential that these exercises are carried out regularly by professional table tennis players in order to ensure maximum agility and body tension at all times as well as minimising the risk of injury.”



The “Tracker” Module helps coaches and players to analyse the reasons for losing points during play. Danny Heister: “The numerous parameters in this tool effectively assist in following and understanding, which match situations have led to which errors. This enables every player to concentrate on weaknesses in their game during training. A practical tip: If during competition there is not enough time or there is no coach or training partner available, this module can be ideally implemented in conjunction with a follow up video analysis.”
