Backhand Serve Preview | Table Tennis | PingSkills

December 2, 2019

Let’s now take a look at the backhand serve. Firstly let’s take a look at your feet position
for the backhand serve. You can be quite square on but we recommend that you turn yourself
a little side on so that you can then swing through with your waist, your shoulders, and
utilise your arm and wrist as well. The swing for the backhand serve starts with
your bat at your left shoulder. You come through in a semi-circular motion and finish with
your right elbow pointing up towards the roof and your bat comes up almost to shoulder height
again. So Jeff here is demonstrating the start position
and the finish position. Start. Finish. To generate more spin we need to utilise our
wrist with the backhand serve. So your wrist is really coming through in that motion.

    Hey, love your vids, your channel is excellent. In this stroke, does the bat brush more underneath, or the back of ball?

    Hi, I was wondering if you could make a video (or just tell me about it here) about playing against someone who spins the ball a lot.
    How do I win?

    Also, what do you think about the Donic Waldner table tennis bat series?

    i stat bad if i have really slow backhand serve?it so close to net,that i couldnot tell it bad.

  • Reply Austin Montgomery December 28, 2016 at 4:57 am

    I'm noticing that most of your serves bounce twice on the opponents side. I've watched your video about serving short and that has really helped, but I still can't seem to get it to bounce twice on the other side, no matter how soft or spinny I serve it. Any tips?

  • Reply Armel Hendriks April 16, 2017 at 9:57 am

    I play mostly all the time backspin and my serves have always backspin. Do you have a tip for an anti-topspin serve with backhand-backspin?

  • Reply falgun sorathiya August 19, 2017 at 6:26 pm

    I know the forehand tomahawk serve but I want to know about the backhand tomahawk serve

  • Reply eev s October 10, 2017 at 2:56 pm

    all of the serves hit the forehand side of the opponent.. im sad most of them can topspin my serve easily 🙁

  • Reply Jeongwoo CHOI December 16, 2017 at 4:20 am

    Ive heard that u must swing the bat from under ur arm and follow through. U didnt really cover this point in the video… is this essential or is it just useless??

    I'm getting my 30-50% points just because of backhand serve ❣️.
