1996 Olympic Team member Wei Wang and five time U.S. Men's Champion and Olympian Sean O'Neill explain serve motion, serve strategy, receive motion, receive footwork and receive strategy. All basic strategies are covered, including:
- Forehand Top- and Sidespin Serves
- Forehand Underspin Serve
- Backhand Top and Sidespin Serves
- Backhand Underspin Serve
- Serve - Attack Drills
- Forehand receives
- Backhand receives
- Receive Drills
Stop and slow motion are used to clearly show all movements. Examples from international competitions are used to show how each technique is applied. Includes practice drills.
Since this program was produced, the international rules of table tennis regarding serves have been modified to state: "As soon as the ball has been projected, the server's free arm shall be removed from the space between the server's body and the net."
In some of the serves in this program, Wei's arm remains in front, which under that rule change is no longer legal. All technical portions of this program remain valid, with the modification that the free arm must be pulled back after the ball is projected.
