Hi Alois,

When I play I have trouble switching my forehand to a back hand if the ball is coming down to my backhand. Please advise a drill to work on this deficiency. Thank you

Hi Abdullah,

To improve this you can do a lot of switching drills in training.  One simple one is to get your training partner to control the ball alternately to the two sides of the table and you switch from forehand to backhand.

Download a free copy of our Training Drills from the Free downloads section of our site.  In there you will find a whole lot of drills that you can utilise.  Look for the PingSkills drill and the Triple switch drill.  These will also help.
