How to block high arc topspin AND low, fast topspin

In this video, I explain how to block both high arc topspin attacks and low, fast topspin attacks.

You need a slightly different blocking technique, depending on what type of attack your opponent makes. If it is a high arc topspin attack, you need to close your bat angle, contact the ball early and use a slightly more active stroke.

If it is a low, fast topspin attack, you should open your bat angle slightly and try to stop the ball. The ball will go back fast, and you will often hit a winning shot.

At the end of the video, I also ask how much we should block when we play.
