How to do a Backhand Flick in Table Tennis


Welcome to the channel of coach EmRatThich. Today, I explain to you how to do a
strong backhand flick based on a tutorial of a beautiful chinese coach. Special thanks to Okawa Ping Pong at chuantt
website, I will translate some important tips to perform a good backhand flip. This is one of the 10 standard table tennis
lessons provided by the young table tennis coach. She is also very cute. Backhand flip is a good technique to return
the short topspin or the sidespin ball over the table. This technique has become a standard technique
in the modern table tennis nowadays. This technique requires you to use the wrist. Look at the way this coach has turn back
her wrist. Some amateur players forget this step, so
they can’t do a backhand flick correctly. Pay attention to the grip, she has moved her
thumb forward to favor the backhand grip. This grip is important as it will stabilize
and add power to the stroke. First, you should watch the ball closely. And then lift your elbow. You must lift and
put your elbow forward. This is important because if you keep your
elbow close to your body, you can’t use your elbow as the
axis of rotation. By putting the elbow
forward, you can now easier to turn back the wrist toward your body. This step is
crucial to make a good impact to your backhand flick. Second, use your right leg to step toward
the table. You should also lean your body to
lower the center of gravity. If you are too far from the table, you can
miss the good timing to flip the ball. The closer you get to the ball, the better
chance that you can hit it properly and impact a good power. Look at her grip. She holds the racket loosely which can help
her to accelerate at the right moment. Some amateur players just hold the racket
too firm, and then can’t do a smooth stroke. So remember: Step toward the table, put the
elbow up and forward, turn the wrist maximum so the blade points to your body. Relax the grip, and accelerate when the
ball is at highest position. Hold the racket loosely can also help you
to turn back your racket maximum. Prepare
well for the stroke, and accelerate at the moment. You should flip the ball when it is at
it’s highest position. Look at my video about timing in table tennis. Turn back the wrist
so the racket head can point to your body. If you can’t do that, it means that you hold
your racket too firmly. Relax more. Do you
know the name of this beautiful chinese coach? She is so nice and her
technique is so smooth and standard. She is a very good coach, I think.

  6. Lol my friend's name is nikita and at the start of the term some random guy accidently called him chikita. Then i found THIS and every time i do the backhand flick, i do two things: 1) Yell "CHIKITA!!" 2) Look at his clueless face.
