How to Push or Slice

HOW TO PUSH / SLICE

Pushes are the basic backspin shots, to change the pace of an exchange or to return certain very low and close shots such as backspin serves.


IMPARTING BACKSPIN

The racket cuts underneath the ball, imparting backspin and causing the ball to float slowly to the other side of the table. Bring the racket slightly up and back, while keeping the elbow at your waist.


DOWNWARD MOTION

Bend the wrist back. Swing forward with a downward motion, and when the racket reaches the ball snap the wrist forward for extra racket speed.



ONLY GRAZING

With an open racket, graze the bottom half of the ball. An ideal contact point is right after the ball bounces. Try to hit the ball in front and slightly to the right of your body. Follow through forward and slightly down, and return to the ready position.
