Backhand Serve Preview | Table Tennis | PingSkills

Let’s now take a look at the backhand serve. Firstly let’s take a look at your feet position
for the backhand serve. You can be quite square on but we recommend that you turn yourself
a little side on so that you can then swing through with your waist, your shoulders, and
utilise your arm and wrist as well. The swing for the backhand serve starts with
your bat at your left shoulder. You come through in a semi-circular motion and finish with
your right elbow pointing up towards the roof and your bat comes up almost to shoulder height
again. So Jeff here is demonstrating the start position
and the finish position. Start. Finish. To generate more spin we need to utilise our
wrist with the backhand serve. So your wrist is really coming through in that motion.
