Hi Alois and Jeff, I seem to be having trouble returning spin and what stroke I play to return the spin shot.  I'm also not quite sure what angle I should have my bat in.

thanks very much, Adam

Hi Adam,

Returning spin is a really difficult part of the game to start with.

The angle that you need to have your bat is the biggest key.  Learning the exact angle is a matter of watching the result of what you are doing.  If the ball goes too far to the right, then angle your bat more to the left and vice versa.  It is a lot of trial and error to start with over the first year or so.

Later you can think about getting access to our Receiving Secrets lessons.
