Hi, I've seen many of your videos and learnt many things but 1 thing I can't do is returning a side spin serve. I went to a table tennis tournament and lost because when my opponent serves a side spin and I touch the ball, it just flys away from the table, left or right.plz help.

Hi Adwaith,

This is something that improves as you play against these servers more.

You need to be able to adjust the angle of your racket to the amount of spin that is on the ball. The differences can be very subtle.  In our lesson on Receiving Secrets we cover this topic in depth and give you some simple tools to use to help you to speed up the process of learning to return serves.
