Spin plays an important role in the sport of table tennis, so if you're intending to play at an advanced level, you'll need to master this vital skill.
Generally, the ball is struck with either topspin or backspin - although sidespin may also be added.
Let's have a look at each of these table tennis techniques in turn ...
Topspin is produced by starting your stroke below and/or behind the ball and brushing the ball in an upward and forward motion.
Backspin is produced by starting your stroke above and/or behind the ball and brushing the ball in a downward and forward motion.
Sidespin is produced by brushing the ball in a sideways motion.
Depending on whether your racket moves to the right or to the left, you'll impart different sidespin.Woodworking PlansGarden lighting
