Styles of play

  1. 1. GRIP - The manner in which competitive players grip their bats/rackets can be classified into two major family of styles > Penhold > Shakehand But, numerous variations on gripping styles exist.
  2. 2. GRIP - SHAKEHAND - Try imagining shaking hands with your racket - Pointy finger pointing downwards & thumb across the other side - Don’t grip too firmly (it hinders your capacity to generate spin)
  3. 3. GRIP - SHAKEHAND
  4. 4. COMMON QUESTION? Why not use the forehand grip from holding a lawn tennis racket? >>It’s a little unstable >>Having the pointy finger pointing downwards gives you more control over the racket and helps you determine which angle is your racket at
  5. 5. GRIP - PENHOLD - Try imagining holding a pen using the handle of your racket Advantage: • No crossover • The wrist has more movement and flexibility Disadvantage: • Backhand is a little difficult to execute
  6. 6. GRIP - PENHOLD
  7. 7. UNUSUAL GRIP – V- GRIP - developed in China - has a noticeable spin benefit
  8. 8. UNUSUAL GRIP – SEEMILLER GRIP - made famous by Danny Seemiller(American) - Shots hit the same rubber - variation of Shakehand Grip
  9. 9. 2 TYPES OF STROKES OR SHOTS >> Spin exceptions are smash, block and lob
  10. 10. 5 OFFENSIVE STROKES 1. Speed Drive 2. Loop Drive 3. Counter Drive 4. Flip (Flick in Europe) 5. Smash
  11. 11. 1 / 5 OFFENSIVE STROKES - the racket is perpendicular to the direction of the stroke when executed - focused on speed than spin - used mostly to keep the ball in play, applying pressure on the opponent to return their shots as fast as they can SPEED DRIVE
  12. 12. 2 / 5 OFFENSIVE STROKES - reverse of speed drive - racket is parallel to the direction of the stroke - it will arc quite a bit - not as difficult to return as speed drive but will likely to rebound off the opponents racket at a high angle, easy for a smash LOOP DRIVE
  13. 13. 2 / 5 OFFENSIVE STROKES >> Categorized in 3 variations by the Chinese players: 1. The “Loop” – slower; ultra-topspin; has a higher trajectory; more loopy arc 2. The “Rush” – combination of loop & speed drive; as fast as a speed drive & has a flatter trajectory as a loop if it bounces; it spins 3. The “Hook” – top-side spin; bounces sideways/downwards upon hitting the table LOOP DRIVE – 3 CATEGORIES
  14. 14. 3 / 5 OFFENSIVE STROKES - it’s usually a counter attack against drives - racket is near the ball, hit with a short movement “off the bounce” (before reaching the highest point) , hence the ball travels faster to the other side - with timing & accuracy, it can be effective as a smash COUNTER DRIVE
  15. 15. 4 / 5 OFFENSIVE STROKES - a short topspin stroke played from over the table, using mainly the wrist and forearm, typically against a short serve or push - it can also be a backswing that is compressed to a quick wrist action FLIP (OR FLICK IN EUROPE)
  16. 16. 5 / 5 OFFENSIVE STROKES - A forceful shot with an emphasis on speed. - It is a power stroke that will have the intention of winning the point. Also known as a flat hit or kill. - Usually executed when the opponent has returned a ball that bounces too high and/or close to the net SMASH
  17. 17. 7 DEFENSIVE STROKES 1. Slice 2. Chop 3. Block 4. Push Block 5. Side Drive 6. Lob 7. Stop
  18. 18. 1 / 7 DEFENSIVE STROKES - the racket cuts underneath, imparting a backspin and causing the ball to float slowly to the other side of the table - it’s used to make it too short to be attacked rather than to over- spin SLICE
  19. 19. 2 / 7 DEFENSIVE STROKES - a chop is bigger & heavier than slice, taken well back from the table - has so much backspin that the ball rises & is difficult to return - difficult to execute since it takes a tremendous amount of spin to return the ball over the net CHOP
  20. 20. 3 / 7 DEFENSIVE STROKES - short or simple shot, barely worthy of being called a stroke (since it’s not a full swing) - it is executed by simply putting the racket in front of the ball then the ball rebounds back toward the opponent BLOCK
  21. 21. 4 / 7 DEFENSIVE STROKES - adding a small topspin movement to the ball - it entails a little push / and a slanting angle of the racket PUSH BLOCK OR ACTIVE BLOCK
  22. 22. 5 / 7 DEFENSIVE STROKES - this is alternately used as defensive / offensive maneuver - it puts a spin on the ball either to the right or left - its execution is similar to slice but the rackets angle is sideward not downward SIDE DRIVE
  23. 23. 6 / 7 DEFENSIVE STROKES - it’s deceptive & the most visually-impressive shot - it is done by lifting the ball to enormous height before it falls back to the opponents side - it’s unpredictable because of its heavy amounts of spin LOB
  24. 24. 7 / 7 DEFENSIVE STROKES - it’s a high level stroke, used as another variation for close-to- table strokes (like slice) - it’s done by positioning your body close to the ball and just let the ball touch the racket without any hand movement STOP OR DROP SHOT
