Different Spins and Serves
Applying different spins on the ball is the key in Ping Pong.
There are a lot of spins; the top spin, side spin and backspin. The top spin can be very difficult to return if it was fast and long. On the other hand the side spin is extremely hard to return; the trick is to aim to the middle side of the table, preventing the ball from going off the table when returning the serve.
Finally the backspin can be very tricky since it’s very hard to estimate the speed of the ball.
A good way to return it is to have the angle of the racquet facing up.
