What are the types of spin in table tennis?
There are three basic types of spins: the topspin, the backspin, and the sidespin. The physics behind each spin is nearly the same – as the ball rotates in midair, differences in air pressure between the top, back and side of the ball causes the ball to curve and dip.
Allow the ball to drop and hit the ball with your racket. The ball should bounce on your side of the table before going over the net and bounces on your opponent’s side of the table. Always watch the ball when you’re serving. Keep your wrist relaxed for maximum spin.
Improving the serve
- Focus on heavy spin first and worry about the length later.
- Make sure you slice underneath the ball.
- Accelerate your bat as much as possible on contact.
- Think about aiming at your opponents forehand side if their forehand push is weaker (it often is).
- Practice your fine contact as much as possible.
