I used to play table tennis about 30 years ago. I always had trouble with tricky spin serves when I was younger. I just began playing some recently and now all I see is everybody uses a pendulum serve. Or at least online since these days we have You Tube. I have not played anybody yet that uses it but I am sure it will give me problems if and when I do.
Being away from the game for a long period, I am now wondering when or how did this pendulum serve take over. Was it any single player who came up with it or how or who began using it first? I have searched for answers on this question but not much luck.
The Pendulum serve has been popular for a while now. Other serves are starting to be used a bit more now though.
The Chinese started using it first. I am not sure who would be credited with it. Other readers may know.
