So next week on monday, I'm playing my first ever table tennis tournament. Do you have any tips on what I should do, or any tips on how I can read my opponent's serves and/or moves? And what techniques do you thing I should use? Lukas

Question 3 - 12:57

I am the defensive player but I want to make some more back spin. Also I want to know about what I need to do to be better defensive player?Jang

Question 4 - 16:55

I sometimes use the backhand with just a wrist action when the ball is half long and also from deep of the table as well. Sometimes I find the wrist shot effective and sometimes difficult to control. Is this technique fine? Grenville

Question 5 - 20:07

I play a player who has a backhand serve from his backhand corner played fast and deep into my backhand corner. The difficulty is that he varies and disguises the spin, and I cannot read which spin is on the ball. How can I learn to read it better? Michael
