In table tennis, an accurate hit should be possessed by an athlete in order to be able to anticipate and counter attack the opponent. A good and accurate stroke is a necessity. The aim of this research is to examine the effect of exercise method and hand-eye coordination towards the accuracy of forehand topspin in table tennis. The learning method applied here is Massed Practice and Distributed Practice, meanwhile hand-eye coordination cover high and low coordination. Experiment and factorial

The research subjects are 8 students involved in table tennis association (UKM) at UPI Sumedang district which is divided into 4 groups. Based on placed, high and low coordination with MPP treatment, high and low motor perceptual with MPDD treatment. As many as 16 meetings were conducted and Mannova analysis showed that there is a difference of accuracy in the forehand topspin strokes between trained students with massed practice and distributed practice. Distributed practice showed better performance. There is a difference between students or athletes who owned high and low hand-eye coordination towards their forehand topspin stroke accuracy in playing table tennis. Higher ability in motor skill has better results and the accuracy of forehand topspin between those who followed massed practice and distributed practice has also different results significantly with those who have higher and lower hand-eye coordination.
