Jeff stands aside the left corner of the table for backhand counterhit. Is that the position one should stand for training? Wouldn't the player be too far on to the left to take forehand returns during a match?

Hi Paul,

Thi sis a position for just practising the Backhand counterhit.  Jeff tends to stand a little further in the corner because he plays more forehands.  This position is also a position that you would use because it is facing diagonally on the table.

In a rally that position would change significantly especially as the ball is placed wider to the forehand corner.
