Hi Alois!! I'm pretty good at doing spinny loops but these are very slow and many of my training partners do it miles faster than me. But when I try to go faster, the ball goes too much long off the table. Please help me with how can I improve at it.

Hi Lovish,

If the ball is going long focus on getting more topspin on the ball.  This will help you to get the ball to dip quicker and for it to go onto the table.

If you aren't generating the topspin the ball will tend to go too long.

I am very happy as now I've learned the stroke . But If the Ball is coming straight to my body , I'm not able to get the stroke right due to improper body position. Suggest me with this please.

If you cannot get into position quick enough then it should fall to a backhand drive/loop or push/block.

you can lean down and then try to do a "shorter" version of forehand topspin...if the ball comes directly into your body and you have no time to move.....just make sure you are already bending your knees

They are good suggestions.  The crossover point is difficult to deal with sometimes.  Just do the best stroke you can.  If you have your legs wide and balanced you can lean a little onto your left foot and play the shot.

If your a looper you need to return your position as fast as you should

my teammate has also have a problem on his loops he doesnt get into the position so i try to do the punch block at his position or even at the sides of the table
