on the overspin backhand and forehand is the point of impact simply intuitive? i know it i is critical for controll of the ball - keeping it on the table. is there any method to insure the right point of impact in the swing. i know that on a forehand smash it is critical.
i really enjoy your videos,they have helped me a lot. i have a friend from thailand who is helping me improve my game. he is a virtual return board no matter how well i hit the ball.
thanks again charlie stewart
The point of impact in relation to your body should remain similar for all strokes. Basically the contact point will be in front of your body. If you clasp your hands together in front of you at around waist level, this is a reasonable contact point for all of your strokes. This may seem strange, but it can be the impact point for both forehand and backhand.
Take a look at the video response below.
