Best Answer

Good footwork is essential in modern Table Tennis.

It enables you to reach the ball quicker and more easily, which in turn enables you to play a greater variety of strokes.

Additionally, good footwork enables you to play a better stroke and place your return more accurately, which puts your opponent under time pressure.

It's also important to remember that good footwork will enable you to remain well balanced at all times whilst playing your strokes.
