In this tutorial video Seth Pech shares what he’s learned about that most foundational (and important) of table-tennis shots – the block.
Nice video here from Tom Lodziak in which coach Emma Harradine demonstrates a forehand loop (against backspin) that just looks so spinny, safe and reliable.
I’ve always liked the idea of this shot – the archetypal third ball in the rally – being like a well-oiled machine, but have never quite nailed it. So I’m gonna study this!
Here’s a lovely slow-mo comparison of Liam Pitchford’s backhand technique versus that of an amateur.
In this video we go over the 3 pro tips from Liam Pitchford that helped transform Dan’s backhand!
Great video (in German with subtitles) which shows and tells the most important elements of this serve, namely:

- Swing your wrist about 90° extremely fast when touching the ball; and
- The third bounce should be close to the side-edge of the table so that the opponent cannot easily attack and your spin has the strongest effect.
