Drill of the Week - 8:46

Choosing Drills  how should you choose your drills? What type of drills should you choose in the off season.

Short Pimples at the Elite Level - 12:16

Jamie: Why don't elite players use short pimples as it allows them to negate the extreme amount of topspin and smash the ball. I have seen other very good semi pro players with great technique beaten by other players with short pimples or hardhats.

Counterhit Accuracy - 16:36

Sk Verma: Whenever I do practice counter hit, I am not able to place ball to corner every time. I am trying it with flat bat position but as the ball goes away from me or close to chest I can't control the ball to the corner although ball is on the table.

Accuracy in Drills - 19:47

Yap: My friends and I are very bad at blocking the ball accurately. Thus, it is very difficult for us to do the footwork drills. Can you help?
