The Backhand Topspin

xxx NULL 1


The backhand topspin is an attacking shot used to put your opponent under pressure, it is a progression of the backhand drive where we look to generate more spin and speed on the ball. In modern table tennis having a strong backhand topspin has become more and more prominent, players at the highest level now often topspin strongly with both wings both close to and away from the table. Also now with the emergence of the backhand flick being one of the most used shots in table tennis being able to backhand topspin well has never been more relevant.
