Whats the best way to return a loop with the penhold? backhand or forehand?

And also what should my goal be when I'm training solo.  I have a table and I have bend the other side so I can play solo but what should my goal be?

How to practice serves solo?

Thank you for spending your time for us.

Hi Salar,

You can block the ball with either your backhand or forehand when using penhold.  I think the backhand feels more comfortable because it is more difficult to turn your hand over the ball with the forehand but this is adjustable by relaxing your fingers and hand.

When practising by ourself you can have a lot of things to work on.  You can work on your consistency by hitting the ball up against the other half of the table.  You can practice your serve easily by yourself.   There are several aspects to work on, spin, placement or you can work on developing a new serve.
