My friends were telling me something about third ball play. What is it and how can one master it?
Thanks in advance sir.
Third ball refers to the third ball in the rally. The serve is the first ball, the return is the second and then comes the third ball.
The idea is to be able to make an attacking stroke on the third ball by using an effective serve.
In Table Tennis it is often the person that can make the first attacking stroke that will win the point. That is why the third ball is so important for the server.
It is related to your ability to serve well and create those opportunities.
To get better at it work on your serves and especially your Forehand Topspin Off Backspin. These are the two critical elements of having a good third ball attack.
