STEVE FOSTER: Hi there,
Welcome to AllAboutTableTennis.com
Today we’re going to look at the
Backhand Loop.
So, starting from our Ready Position
For the Backhand Loop it’s quite useful to
give yourself a bit more space away from the table
Because we’re playing with a bit more
power and spin on the ball
OK. So like the Drive,
Instead of just starting above the table
we’re going to bring the
bat (racket) down slightly further
And with the Backhand Loop,
you can have two choices.
You can either start from the hip
and then turn the body into the stroke
or you can start nearer, inbetween your legs
and come up that way.
So that’s the choice
which you need to make as a player
for the Backhand Loop
Also, having your shoulders forward
Get the bat (racket) down – I prefer it
between the legs – I feel like I have more control
And then, from the elbow,
come upwards and forwards with a fast arm,
and then brushing over the top of the ball
finishing in front of us here
OK. We’re just going to demonstrate that now.
