How do I do a side spin on a serve?
Creating a side spin is not that hard. It works really well when used at the right times. The key is to keep you opponent honest and guessing. Otherwise, he / she will pick up on your spin and use it against you.
The way to accomplish a side spin is to move the racket sideways towards your core. For example you start swinging from one corner or side of the table towards your core or abdomen.
