Hello, what's the best way to contact the ball when trying to make a short push? Before the top of the bounce, at the top of the bounce or maybe slightly after the top of the bounce?

Hi Dariusz,

To get the ball short on your opponent's side it is best to contact the ball as early as possible off the bounce.  That will mean that you are closer to the net making it easier to push it back close to the net on your opponent's side.
