Getting the most from your training

High Sidespin Balls - 8:10

Mike: One of my opponents likes to spin the ball high with a lot of side topspin to my backhand during some of our rallies. I'm basically close to the table while he plays further back. I tend to miss many of those shots. How do I counter such tactics? :)

Dealing with Sidespin Loops - 9:51

Tim: My opponent starts his counterattack and does the sidespin topspin loop. Then I am unable to return it... I have lost a lot of points because of this. Any advice on what I can do?

How to Start a New Player - 12:40

Arjan: I'm about to take a friend of mine to the TT club. Should I let him play with my all-round bat? Should I bother with explaining the correct form of the shakehand grip? Basic serve? Forehand/backhand? What about the ready position?
