I struggle with putting backspin on my chops, and I keep getting them a huge ball for an easy attack. My backhand chop is very bad, with my forehand, I want to improve my chopping , for my backhand and forehand, to get low with heavy backspin into the table. How do I fix this mistake, when my chops keep going off the table?

Hi Jason,

Take a look at the tutorial on the Forehand Chop and Backhand Chop.

If the ball is going off the end of the table or too high, make your stroke more vertical.  Finish more down towards the ground rather than pushing forward.

To get more spin you can think about brushing the ball on contact.
