I am having a hard time returning a slow sidespin serve, that a lot of my opponents serve to me. When I hit the ball, it spins off of my paddle, and goes off the table. How do I return it?

Hi Matias,

If the ball is spinning off to the left, just angle your bat to the right and vice versa.  It is all about the angles.  Don't try to play across the line of the ball. Keep it as simple as possible.

It may take you a few attempts to get it right but you will get there.  Also make sure you are watching where your returns are going especially when they miss.
