Butterfly Table Tennis Question and Answer
Question: I’m a lefty, who gets attacked a lot with high arch loops to my backhand side. I am not able to step around to my forehand side. So I end up making a weak return with my backhand that either goes off the table or easy for the opponent to attack. How can I improve returning a high arch loop to my backhand side that can put pressure on my opponent?
