any specific exercises that you find very useful to start teaching how to spin/brush the ball to juniors?
i find sometimes hard to get them to have more feeling and transition from flat hitting to brushing,
specially for topspin the ball
i found very useful to slow down the speed for them to focus on brushing but still looking for drills that are more effective for this particular skill
can be inside or outside the table.
One that I use regularly now is to put a string or pole about 2 meters above the level of the net and get them to hit the ball over the strong and onto the table. Feed them a backspin ball with only a little backspin to start with. To do this they will have to develop the brushing contact.
Another one that I have seen but don't use very much is to roll the ball off the table and get them to brush the ball up with topspin as it rolls off the table.
