How can I counter or block a fast spin serve?

When my friend serves, it comes in a normal way and when it touches the bat it spins and changes its direction. Sometimes it also comes very fast.

Hi Achyutaram,

It sounds like he is putting a lot of spin on his serves.  Learning to return spin will take a bit of time. FIrst you need to watch how he is hitting the ball and also watch the flight of the ball.  

If they are brushing the ball from your left to right then the ball will want to spin off to your right when you hit it and vice versa.

You can get a whole lot of tips if you get yourself access to the Receiving Secrets section by becoming a Premium member.
