Forehand Loop

Date: 2006/04/04
Brief: Forehand Loop
Author Name: Tactital Table Tennis
Although the loop can also be used against topspin, we only cover the mechanics of looping against underspin here. While standing close to the table, shift your weight onto the forehand-side leg, drop your forehand shoulder and your paddle close to the ground, then push with your legs upward to powerfully graze upward on the ball just after the ball has started to descend. As you move your forehand side upward, bring your backhand shoulder and arm down to act as a counterbalance. Adjust the face of the paddle to the amount of underspin on the ball.
