Hi Alois,

in youtube I found the lectures on tabletennis by Greg Letts.  He often speaks about twiddling.  What I understood is that this means the permanent changing of the side of the bat during a game. For example playing backhand with the red side or playing forehand with the black side (long pips).

My question: in which situations should I as a hobby player do this changing of the colour ?

Regards

Peter

Hi Peter,

Players usually use it to change to the inverted side on the backhand to generate spin or as a variation.

You can use it to use the long pimple side on the forehand as well if you are having problems reading spin on the forehand.
