How to return a sidespin serve?

Hi John,

The key is to use the angle of your racket and not try to do too much to get the ball back on the table.

If the ball is spinning off to your left, then angle your bat to face the right side of the table or even beyond.  This will counter the spin on the ball.

In our lesson on Receiving Principles in our Receiving Secrets section we show you a simple way to get the angle right.
