I've been playing table tennis for a while now. I guess i'm a decent player but i'm kind of bad for my age that is 14. I just found your channel and your videos has helped me with many things and i'm also subscribed. But i have trouble with serving. I'm having a really hard time making my pendulum to spin. When i serve it to anyone they'll just hit it over easily. I don't really know what i'm doing wrong. Any ideas what i'm doing wrong? Please respond.

Hi Robin,

It doesn't mater what level you are at any age, if you are working on improving then you are doing well.

To improve your Pendulum serve think about getting a good brushing contact on the ball.  By brushing the ball you will get it to spin.  The contact is the most important part of the whole process.  If you get that right then you will start to get some good spin.

It take s awhile to get the serve really good.  So, keep working on it and practice it for a while during each session you have and you will find it will start to win you some points.
