Now let’s take a look at the Pendulum Serve.
The pendulum serve is one of the really popular serves in table tennis nowadays. It’s called the pendulum serve because of
the pendulum motion of the bat. Like the old Grandfather clocks the pendulum would move
from side to side. Similarly our bat moves from here all the way through to there. The first thing we need to think about when
we are doing the pendulum serve is the grip. Now if you’ve got your normal shakehand grip
what you need to do is take these 3 fingers away from the handle and place them behind
the handle. So what that does is allows you to utilise your wrist in a better motion.
So by utilising your wrist you’re going to be able to generate more spin and more speed
with your racket.
