Hi Alois whenever I am playing a match or training I can only hit the players 'power pockets' and not the wide backhand and forehand is there a technique to getting the ball wider to the opponent's wide forehand and backhand?


By power pockets i mean the opponent's normal forehand and backhand position

Hi Tam,

Often the limiting factor is the fear of missing.  We play safely and play well inside the line to make sure the ball goes on the table.  In training, don't be afraid to miss off the side of the table.  Just missing the side by a few millimetres is much better than hitting the ball into the Power Pocket.
