1. The Backhand Block

To play this stroke, stand close to the table and take a stance facing the line of play.

Using a short stroke, your racket arm should move from the elbow in a horizontal plane whilst your free arm should point towards the ball to assist with your balance.

Hit the ball as it's rising (i.e. just after bouncing on your side of the table) using 50% of your stroke action before hitting the ball and 50% after hitting the ball.

Your body movement should be minimal when you play this shot.



My top table tennis techniques:

This shot would normally be used when the approaching ball is moving very quickly, with topspin, towards your backhand side.

The purpose of this stroke is to catch your opponent out of position and reduce the time available to them, so you should try to make sure that your shot lands away from your opponent and close to their baseline or sideline.


2. The Forehand Block
