Hi PingSkills,
I am 11 years old and I am not as tall as other players and not as flexible therefore some people does a fast, low and a little topspin towards the far right or far left. The shots always end up near the net, on the left or right side of the table making it hard to return it. most times i fail, but when i return it, it mostly goes very high, and i will lost the point. Can you tell me where to stand and what kind of return should i give? ( Topspin? Block? Push? )

Hi Stefan,

Yes, I remember that prblem well.  I was very short till I was 14 anfd palyers used to try this tactic on me a lot.

I think the best advice is to watch the ball carefully when they are serving.  This will give you a little more time to reach that short ball.  If the ball haas topspin it would be best to flick or block the ball back.  If the ball is long on your side you can even topspin it back.  Think about placing the return well.  Because the ball is wide you can give it back to them wide as well.
