[Video] How to do the big forehand slap shot

In this video, I explain how to do a big forehand slap shot.


A forehand slap is where you hit the ball very hard and very flat. It’s a hard shot to do consistently, but if you can master this technique, then you can win a lot of points. The slap shot is very hard to return, as it is very fast and there is not much spin on the ball.

The demonstration in this video is by Martin Gray – a very strong player with lots of tournament and British league experience.
