You need to ensure you have a good bat with a grippy rubber. The grippy rubber will help you to spin the ball. Once you have your equipment sorted you need 2 things:
1) a fast contact
2) a brushing contact
Although it sounds simple it is quite a difficult skill to be able to swing the bat fast and still hit the ball with a fine brushing action. In addition to this you need to be able to control the ball so you can both serve the ball short when required and long and fast when required.
So make sure you practice a lot. Every time you play you should try and get some service practice in.
To begin with you could try stepping away from the table and just concentrate on getting as much spin as possible. Not having to keep the ball on the table can help free up your action to ensure you have a fast contact. Once you get the right feeling you can move back to the table and try a real serve.
Try out these suggestions and let me know how you get on.
