    All points in a table tennis game begin with either serving or returning the serve. When serving, you have a huge advantage in putting the receiver on the defensive or perhaps winning a point outright without any further strokes. To perfect your service game, USA Table Tennis Hall of Fame inductee Richard McAfee offers Expert Table Tennis Serves, a mini e-book providing expert advice.

    By practicing the techniques in this mini e-book, you will be able to keep your opponent guessing with an assortment of short, middepth, and deep serves that produce a variety of spins. You’ll learn how, when, and where to touch the ball, whether using a forehand or backhand serve, while incorporating backspin, topspin, and sidespin.

    Master the skills outlined by McAfee and you will be on your way to becoming a confident, high-level player.

    The mini e-book Expert Table Tennis Serves is an abridged version of the comprehensive book Table Tennis: Steps to Success (Human Kinetics, 2009). As part of the Steps to Success Sports Series, with more than 1.8 million copies sold, Table Tennis: Steps to Success is the No. 1 resource for learning and loving the game.
