I was playing table tennis with this old guy, his backhand serve had sidespin so I changed it to the left side and the ball went off flying to the right. That’s the sidespin I usually play against but it keeps flying off. Is there two type of sidespin?

Hi Jason,

The ball can spin both ways but it will be the way that he is hitting the ball.  You need to watch carefully to see the contact he is getting on the ball.

Though with the Backhand serve the ball should spin to your left when you hit it.
