Thanks for the great videos.. they greatly keep my game in shape.

The one thing I have trouble with is playing against people who hit weak, low balls that barely go over the net. It seems hard to hit topspin when I have to reach forward for the ball. How should I best return these shots? Thanks

Hi Winson,

With the short ball you have two options.  You can use the short push back and then wait for them to stray long with the next ball or you can flick the short ball.

The short push is probably the easiest option to start with.  You can see how to short push at the end of the Video lessons on the Push.

We have filmed a video lesson on the flick.  They will be available soon.  They are currently being edited.  Keep checking the site for them.

These will also be available on our PingSkills Coaching Lessons Volume 2 which will be available in a few weeks.
