Hi Umer,

Take a look at our lesson on the Backhand Push and the Forehand Push.  These will show you the best technique to use to get backspin on the ball.

To do a backspin serve you need to brush under the ball and get the ball to start to spin backwards.  If you think of the ball as a clockface, then you need to contact the ball at 6 on the face.  You also need a brushing action on the ball.  Then get the ball to bounce close to you on your side of the table so it has enough time to get up and over the net.

We do have a lesson on this in our Serving Secrets Course on Learning To Spin.  This is available for our Premium members.
