Hi, I'm Elie from Gilbert Table Tennis Center. And today, I'm going to talk to you about how to hit a ping-pong ball. So, in table tennis, we have a big variety of strokes. It all depends on what kind of spin would you like to put to the ball. So, the stroke number one would be the under spin, on the backhand side, when you hit it like this. So, that's the stroke with the under spin. The other stroke is a top spin stroke on the backhand side, this one. So, you can do it either faster or slower, so it's up to you. The most, the strongest spin on the backhand is the backhand loop. In that shot, you really want to skim the ball through. So, you don't really push it forward that much. It would look like this. That's the strongest spin on the backhand side. So, on the forehand side, we have three variety of strokes as well. So, first one is the forehand under spin. The stroke with the top spin on the forehand side is the forehand drive, looks like this, when you're really kind of giving some topspin to the ball, and a lot of speed forward, like this. The strongest spin on the forehand side is the forehand loop. And, in that case, you really want to spin the ball for as much as you can, and, like, sort of brushing through, skimming the ball with this. That would be the strongest spinniest shot on the forehand. So, it all depends what you'd like to achieve. Sometimes, we hit little bit slower. Sometimes, we hit little bit faster. So, either like this, or like that. And, I'm Elie from Gilbert Table Tennis Center. And today, I told you about how to hit ping-pong ball. Thank you.
