I have started using a shot I call the volley recently.
Just like a volley in Tennis.
You play it early after the ball bounces and it’s basically a block.
The benefit I see is it returns the ball quickly and may catch an opponent off guard.
I play it with a loose grip.
Do you have any thoughts on this one, I haven’t seen any videos on it.
We call this the Half volley in Table Tennis. It is a difficult stroke but can be really effective. The player I think of when I think of this stroke is Erik Lindh from Sweden who used to take the ball really early on both sides.
We cover the stroke briefly in our tutorial on how to Counter A Spinny Topspin.
Might be a good one for a tutorial.
