Table Tennis BackHand TopSpin

Table Tennis, which is sometimes known as "Ping Pong" in the USA is a dynamic sport requiring fast reactions from its players. A professional and skilled player is able to impart various types of spin to the ball, to keep their opponent on the defense and limit their options.

The backhand topspin shot is just one way to impart spin. Below is a great video describing the technique needed to hit a good shot both across the table and down the line.

This video is a fantastic example of using video footage to analyze motion. The camera is setup directly in front of the table tennis player so that we can see well how he changes his stance and hits the backhand topspin shot.

Table tennis is great exercise and fun to play. Learning a few different shots by watching and analyzing video, will help you enjoy the game even more.
