Do a Table Tennis Backhand Drop Shot | Ping Pong

My name is Tahl Leibovitz and I’m here at
SPiN, New York. I am a professional table tennis player who
has been competing internationally since 1995. I am here today to speak to you about the
intermediate and beginner aspects of the Olympic sport of table tennis. Right now I’m going to demonstrate the backhand
drop shot. It’s really important in the sport of table
tennis, uh to be able to sometimes play passive, and not only aggressive. What this means is that you have to sort of
slow your body down, and a lot of times you have your opponent, they put a high ball because
they are in a little bit of trouble and no matter how hard you smash the ball, they keep
returning it. So with the drop shot, what we do is we try
to hit a little bit of the side of the ball and we just touch it. So we have a law with the drop shot, we just
touch the ball, just like that. And we have a high ball, so we sorta just
touch it to drop it. Like that, that’s a good drop shot. Now the second is a drop shot against underspin. You have a lot of players that are defensive
and they push the ball. And what you need to do with that is you need
to really just touch the ball, go underneath, and just touch the ball with the backhand
drop shot. That’s a good drop shot. A couple more. See I’m just sorta really just touching the
ball. It takes a little feeling on the back hand
but its very important to drop the ball. Very low and over the net, so that’s the back
hand drop shot.
