How do I return a backspin serve. I tried to return it while my bat was open and it just went across the table and then I closed the bat and the ball was quite high and he gave me a smash. Is there an effective way to return in so that I have the advantage? The ball even has a slight chop on it.

Hi Aseem,

If the ball has backspin then the best way is to return it with a push stroke.  It will take a bit of time to get the angle of your bat right.  It is almost impossible to get it right in a week or two.  It is something that takes a lot of training and a lot of trial and error.
