Hi Alois,

Could you please tell me what the correct stance for serving is?

Hi Sulaiman,

It depends on the serve. The pendulum serve is a popular service and for this service you can stand side on to the table. Usually this is served from the backhand corner. Depending on your height, you often need to bend down a bit because you want to hit the ball low to the table as this will keep the ball low over the net.

We have an entire course on serving where we go through a wide range of serves. Take a look at Serving Secrets for more information.
