In this video I explain how to dominate with 3rd ball attacks.
This is where you serve, your opponent returns and you strongly attack the next ball, aiming to finish the point or become the dominant player in the rally.
There are two main categories of 3rd ball attack I discuss in the video – ‘power’ 3rd ball attacks and ‘spin’ 3rd ball attacks. Both are useful, but require a slightly different approach.
The footage in the video is from a recent tournament we held at Cambridge-Parkside Table Tennis Club. There are examples of me doing 3rd ball attacks, and examples of my opponents doing 3rd ball attacks against me.
