To study foot pressure distribution of the three basic footwork of table tennis as striding step、level step and sideway step, to provide parameters of table tennis foot technology. Adopted the Novel Emed pressure distribution measurement system, six table tennis players received the measurement of dynamic foot pressure distribution during striding step、level step and sideway step, comparative analysis pressure changes of nine areas. For striding step, heel, the 1st metatarsals and the 1st phalange were larger pressure. For level step, heel, the 1st metatarsals, the 2nd and the 1st phalange were larger pressure. For sideway step, heel and the 1st phalange were larger pressure. Pressure-time curve of three kinds of footwork were obvious difference. Heel of three kinds of footwork showed peak pressure. Striding step the 1st metatarsals and level step the 2ndt metatarsals Ft was larger, damage risk was the relatively high. For level step, forefoot pressure was larger and continued for a long time, the body gravity moved forward, the body quickly turn.
