Defending against side/top/bottom spin serve

I am a new player but have learned much from your site.

I am still nervous about certain things like when to use a forehand or backhand smash but my main weakness is how to defend against someone who can put a lot of spin on a serve causing me to put it in the net, off one of the sides or return it too long.

Can you help me with this?

Hi Christopher,

I a glad that you are finding the site informative.

The return of serve is a big area and an important area for players as they start to develop.

We have a series of lessons in our Receiving Secrets section that is ideal for this.

Once you understand the principles we explain to you there, you will find it a lot easier.

Good luck with your game.
