This tutorial is a companion to the backhand lob against a smash - front view tutorial, but showing a side view instead. Rather than repeat much of the front view version, I'll just be pointing out items that are relevant to the side view.

Points to look for:

  • The player is standing a long way away from the table, but is maintaining a little distance from the wall in order to give him room for his backswing.
