High Toss Serve | Table Tennis | PingSkills

Now we’re going to teach you how to do the
high toss serve. So why do we do the high toss serve? Firstly,
when you throw the ball up high it’s gathering a lot more speed as it’s coming down and so
when it hits your racket it’s moving faster. That increased speed will mean that you will
also be able to generate more spin. So that’s the first thing. The second thing is then that you can also
distract your opponent. If you’re serving with the ball just here your opponent has
a very small area that they need to focus on but if you’re throwing the ball up high
then they’re going to tend to follow the ball all the way up and down which means that their
focus is a little bit more spread. So two reasons, one to increase the speed of the
ball, and two you can distract your opponent.

  1. I'm having trouble with high toss serve… I tried to do it like Liu Guoliang ( just the pose haha , since I admire his serves..)

  2. I think "more spin" is inaccurate. Because the ball is traveling downwards a lot faster, it becomes a lot easier to give a fast topspin service. You don't even need to really move the racket for it. Backspin becomes a bit harder with a high toss though in my experience. It's possible, but I'm pretty sure the high toss won't increase the generated backspin.

  3. Who has the highest toss when serving? Zhimin Jiao had a very high toss: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lOpXdk_gYow

    Is there a world record in this too?
