Returning Difficult Serves - 13:17

Brock: Hey Pingskills, I met a really talented player that had a very tricky serve and the problem was that he brushed the ball really fast, I couldn't even see which spin it was if it was topspin or backspin or sidespin. I failed every time he did that serve.

When to Step Back - 16:04

Geoff: I have developed a style that keeps me quite close to the table. I can often do well by keeping the ball short and waiting for the first opportunity to attack. I also play well at 3 to 5 feet from the table. How can I transition between the two?

Bennett: Since the nearest club is an hour and thirty minutes away I will be starting a club for my school. I need to know things like what I should get if I'm on a limited budget.

Reverse Pendulum No Spin Serve - 22:36

Mark: My favorite serve is the reverse pendulum. I found it works best because I get to hit a forehand on the 3rd ball. I mix it up with short sidespin, short backspin/sidespin and long/short sidespin with topspin. I want to add a no spin. Any tips?
