Table Tennis Tips

A real low and short no-spin serve can give you some easy points in matches, as they are difficult to flip hard, and they require good timing to push hard. Mix it up with a heavy backspin in the same spot. Remember to get it short, the ball should bounce short on your side close to the net...

 Serving Secrets revealed DVD review
Reviews/comments from forum (

Ok, here is my mini-review of the DVD:

I've watched it all and I think it's quite a good DVD, the best DVD on serves I've seen and I'm happy to recommend it to people. It's about 50mins long and it basically illustrates the major serves used in TT.

A few comments:

- Good details of the basic mechanics of all the major serves
- A good guide for someone that does not have the full range of serves
- highlights of the major points that are important adds a nice touch
- excellent slow motion really helps illustrate the details
- music adds a nice touch
- video quality is good and clear, although the lighting is a little dark at times.
- sound not as clean and consistant as is professional DVDs - not a big deal as everything is clearly understandable
- video lighting could be a little better - not a big deal as everything is clearly visible

For some people in the higher grades in clubs (like myself), it did not reveal anything really new (or secret Wink), since I pretty much knew the serves covered, although there were a few tips I did find very useful, and it highlighted things to focus on to make the serve succesful. There are many people in the top grades that do NOT have the full range of serves though, who could well benefit from this. The DVD is aimed at club level players that do not have the full range of serves, or want to learn some new serves or variation of serves. haggisv


They demonstrate the pendulum, reverse pendulum, tomahawk, backhand and high toss serves, plus discuss various basic tactics. I would have liked to see more actual examples of serves in game situations and also a discussion on advantages and/or disadvantages of serving with or against LP, SP, anti and tacky rubbers. Overall, it's a pretty good overview and probably the best thing out there in English.  mynamenotbob
