How to Smash

HOW TO SMASH

The smash, or kill, is the put-away stroke of Ping pong. Any ball that is high enough and close enough to the opponent’s side can be smashed.


FULLEST EXTENT

Smashing combines waist, forearm, and wrist movement to the fullest extent.


CLOSED RACKET

No matter what the ball height and position is, keep your racket closed and always above the ball before smashing it down.



GETTING BEHIND IT

Open your upper body while bringing your arm back and up. Swing forward putting all your weight behind the ball.



NEVER LET YOU GUARD DOWN

Don’t forget a possible return.
