Hi Aekaros,

The best way is to push the ball back short and low.  This will mean that they can’t attack you.

You can also flick if the serve has sidespin or topspin or you can push the ball back long and fast with backspin.

Here is a previous video response to a similar question. How can I return a short pendulum serve?
