Coach, I lost a very important match against my colleague because I can't properly return a no-spin serve. Usually, I return it high and then he will just smash the ball with ease. How do you effectively return or attack a no-spin ball?

Hi JM,

The best way to return a no spin serve is to flick it.  Pushing it can be difficult because the ball will easily go high.  The flick allows you to come over the ball.  Take a look at the lesson on the flick if you haven't already watched it.

Of course if the ball only bounces once on the tabl you should topspin the return.
