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.
Similarly one may ask, what is a spin shot in table tennis?
Topspin strokes are created when your opponent’s racket brushes against the ball using an upward stroke action. This causes the ball to accelerate and dip due to a combination of ball rotation and air resistance. After the ball makes contact with your racket, the topspin will cause it to rebound in an upward direction.
Likewise, how do you hit backspin in table tennis?
How do you get a good offensive spin?
