Ask the Coach Show #22 – Pendulum Serve Advice

PingSkillers Question of the Day – 0:25

What is your favourite Table Tennis brand?

Question 1 – 1:11

I try to make a forehand topspin but I hit the edge of the paddle or miss the hit. I saw your forehand topspin clip and i try to hit well but the same result. I thought that the paddle angle is too low and I opened up but the shot goes out. Paul Chitic

Question 2 – 3:08

I noticed on your pendulum serves that you hit the ball quite close to your body. Is this a personal thing or do you gain more control and spin by doing this? Bevan Henderson

Question 3 – 4:38

The rubber has started peeling away from the blade at the top of the bat. Since the rubber is only a few months old and is pricey, I’d prefer not to rip the rubber off and replace it with new rubber. Can I do a local re-glue? Ken Cominsky

Question 4 – 7:01

While playing backhand topspin against both chop and topspin which part of my hand should be locked? Is it the elbow or shoulder? I am getting lot of pain in my shoulder while playing the backhand topspin against chop continuously. Singaraju
