This tutorial is a companion to the backhand push return of serve - 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 little away from the table, to make it easy to handle long serves while being able to move into the table for short serves.
