Extreme Topspin Arc

Table Tennis Strokes and Technique

Hi Alois. When I try to do a topspin loop for example, I can’t actually get the ball to drop down. Like when I try to do it, the ball usually flies off the end of the table. If I want it to stay on though, I need to flick my wrist, but it doesn’t have a lot of power and my opponents can easily counter. Should I still swing hard and fast but hit the ball at a different point? Or should I go for a fine brushing contact? (When I try the brushing contact, it’s too fine and the ball is slow with a tiny amount of spin)

Try to hit the ball behind the ball but still brush the ball on contact.  This will give you a mix of topspin and speed.  It sounds like you are brushing the ball too fine.
