How to Make a Topspin Serve
Topspin serve can be done using forehand or backhand but you can stick to any style that fits you or easier for you to do.
As a beginner, you should learn to do it slowly but as you improve on how to serve table tennis, then you can learn to do it faster.
Forehand topspin serve
To play the forehand topspin serve, hold your table tennis racket vertically towards the floor; swing back a little as you toss the ball up.
Play the ball on the back towards the top with an upward and forward motion.
You will need to graze the ball for maximum topspin but do not graze it too much and always make sure the ball does not bounce off the table.
