Hi Johnny,

You can do all the serves with the penhold grip.  Probably one of the easiest is the Pendulum serve. The penhold grip does not need to be altered when you are doing this serve.  Stand side on to the table, start with your elbow up at shoulder level and then use your forearm like a pendulum, allowing your wrist to swing through freely.  The contact is a brushing action on the side of the ball to generate the spin.
