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...

 Table tennis Robots - The Ultimate Guide!


Note: Information in this guide will continue to be added as the table tennis community shares their experiences with others, and allow us to include it in this guide. So if you've used a robot, please share your experience and allow us to add your comments into this guide, so that others can benefit from your experience.


 Choosing a table tennis robot:

C. Spin

Although spin is one of the most important factors of a robot, you'll find that most robots do a decent job. When choosing what robots suits you, you should consider the following:


1. Amount of spin
Can you robot you choose generate sufficient spin to allow you to practice the strokes/routines that you're interested in? The single wheel robots can only generate heavy spin at higher speeds, so if it's essential to you to be able to generate heavy spin at slow speed, then a 2-wheel head may be essential.

2. Types of spin
Well virtually all robots can generate topspin and backspin, but the variations of sidespin is not the same for all. Most robots generate sidespin by rotating the head to an angles so that the topspin or backspin turns into sidespin. Many robots can only turn the head to 45 degrees (see picture on right), which means you cannot generate pure sidespin (also commonly referred to as corkscrew spin).

This type of spin is not actually very common in real play, as combinations of topspin-sidespin or backspin-sidespin are usually used, but if pure sidespin is important to you, make sure your robot can generate it.
