Generating More Spin on Ball

Table Tennis Strokes and Technique

Dear PingSkills,

I have issues generating a lot of spin on the ball during service and strokes. I think the rubbers on my racket are relatively good (Xiom Omega V and Hurricane 3). I was wondering if the blade could play a integral part in generating spin. Should I consider upgrading the blade? I am using Donic Baum Carrera Senso.

Thanks and Regards,

Hi Kenneth,

If you are using those rubbers then it won't be an issue with the equipment.

Think about the contact you are getting with the bat on the ball.  Really focus on getting a finer contact on the ball for both the serves and the strokes.

Start with the simple things we show you in the initial tutorial on Learning to Spin. This may feel a little simplistic but I often find even some advanced players need to go back to this to get the feel of the contact first.  Once you get this the rest can follow a lot more easily.

Hi Alois,

Thanks for your recommendations. I will go through them. I recently also tried to stay lower while playing as I am somewhat taller. It seems to help a bit with the shot execution.

Yes staying lower is key. Focus on getting your feet wider apart.
