I have just been watching basic strokes showing the position and movement of the bat, but the demonstration shows the ball bouncing to a convenient height to return the ball. What do you do when the ball bounces low and short, in other words, it could bounce twice in the middle of the table unless you get to it quickly?

Hi Roy,

If the ball is going to bounce twice on the table the more appropriate stroke is usually a push or flick stroke.  The topspin or counterfeit strokes are usually played when the ball is bouncing a little longer.
