I found out about your video about twiddling. Is it also possible with a penhold grip to execute a twiddle?

Hi Bert,

Yes you can do this. There are a few players that do this at a high level. Search for some footage of Jian Fang Lay.  She does this very successfully.

You take the pointer finger away from the bat and then spin it with your thumb and middle finger.  Give it a try and practice it away from the table as well/

Jiaqi Zheng also twiddels, though only once after a serve: she plays with short pips on the inverted but serves with inverted.
