Hitting dead serves

Table Tennis Service Return

I have trouble against weaker players who serve with no forward speed and a flat hit. What is a good counter hit?

Hi Joseph,

Try to make a flick if they serve the ball short.  Because they are not giving you and speed to work with you will need to generate the speed yourself.

Get you stroke going more forward to generate the speed.  Try to hit the ball at the top of the bounce.

Don't forget as well to think about placement.  If you place the ball well it will give you a better chance to producing an effective serve.
