How to Spin the Ball in Table Tennis

Welcome to the channel of coach EmRatThich. Today, I talk about "How to increase Spin 
in your table tennis shots: serve, loop, push, forehand topspin, backhand flip, etc.

The Chinese philosophy says that there are 3 aspects of a table tennis shot: spin, speed, and power. Spin is the most important of these 3 terms.The spiny ball but slow is not powerful. The fastball without spin is not powerful. The powerful ball is the ball loaded of spin and speed.

How to increase the spin in table tennis?

The only and the one key point to spin the ball is ACCELERATION.

  • Table tennis is not a tennis sport. The ball weight is only 2.7g. It's not how hard you hit the ball, but it's how fast you hit the ball in a short amount of time will decide the amount of spin.
  • The contact occurs only in a fraction of a second. To spin the ball, you must apply force during this moment. All of these processes occurs very fast.
So please remember, "spin" is the key in table tennis. To make the ball spin, think about  "acceleration". In your training sessions, try to accelerate at the moment of contact in your shots: topspin, backspin push, flip, backhand topspin, counter loop, aggressive block, chop.
