4 Points to Hit on a Table in table tennis


We’re going to discuss four points. The first point is being able to hit the top of the ball. The reason we hit the top of the ball is because we want to keep the ball from going off the table, and this happens when our opponent imparts a lot of top spin to the ball. They brush the ball with a lot of spin, so we want to try to get on top of the ball so that it doesn’t go over the table. The other point, which is the exact opposite, is underneath the ball. That’s when we want to hit under, and the reason for that is when our opponent goes underneath the ball we want to stop the ball from going directly to the net. Our goal is to get the ball over the net, and we do this by hitting underneath the ball.
