couldn´t find an answer in the library so here is another question from my infinite problem-list:
How can I attack a long slow ball with little or no spin on fh and bh? When I try fast strokes I can´t get enough spin on the ball to lift it over the net. What makes it more difficult is that I stand relatively close to the table so there's not much time to prepare. Is there a solution?
Try to get a brushing action by brushing forward on the ball. If you are using softer rubber, allow the ball to really sink into the sponge and then spin the ball back. Don't try to hit the ball too hard till you get the feel of the stroke.
If you are using a harder sponge then brush over the top of the ball to generate the spin. Again not too fast, control the ball on the table to start with.
