In this video I explain how to do chops with lots and lots of backspin.
A chop is a defensive stroke which you usually play further back from the table. The aim is to gets lots of backspin on the ball to make it hard for your opponent to attack again.
The demonstration from this video comes from Ferenc Horvath from Paragon Table Tennis. Ferenc has a very good chopping action and generates lots of backspin.
In the video I discuss Ferenc’s chopping technique, the contact point and the use of long pimples.
