In this video, I explain how to play a forehand drive. The forehand drive is one of the main attacking shots used in table tennis. It has a little bit of topspin on it, but mainly it’s a flat hit and very powerful.
In this video, I explain how to play a forehand push. Most players find this shot more difficult to do compared to the backhand push. You are probably not going to use this shot as much as the others we have looked at so far, but you will most likely need to use it in every match you play.
