I'm wondering how the angle of the paddle should change depending on what spin it is. Can you help?

Hi Zach,

If there is a lot of spin on the ball you don't need to lift the ball at all so you can angle your bat more downwards and play a more forward stroke.

For general spin return the angle of the bat is all important.  If the ball is going to the right, angle your bat to the left and so on.
