Exciting News: Three Major Updates!
1. How Spin Works now has its own domain! This means you can access the website from howspinworks.com! However, at this stage, if you want to find a page from the URL, you'll have to access the website from howspinworks.weebly.com.
2. A new camera means I can update the old videos with high-definition slow motion videos!
3. How Spin Works goes to India! As part of a Science conference in Northern India, How Spin Works part 2 will be presented, and a section dedicated to preserving rubbers and sustainability will be placed on the "Part 2" page.
Hope you enjoy these updates!
How Spin Works Part 2!
How Spin Works Part 2 has been added to the website! There have been a few re-shuffles, and it will take some time before the site is organised again, but hopefully the site will start looking prettier soon. Enjoy!
Okay, I've done 10 substances so far, but if anyone thinks of a substance I haven't done yet, please let me know. I'm planning on doing honey, as it is so sticky, so I dare say that will be interesting. By the way, I'm not going to put anything dangerous (corrosive) or illegal on the racket! The more the merrier! If you have any other suggestions for website, please tell them to me.
Remember that backspin lifts the ball up, so don't hit it hard and horizontal with backspin or the ball will float up and go out! However, if you hit the ball hard and low from below the net, it will curve sharply back down.
Buying your first bat is the first choice you'll make. Choosing how you hold your bat is also important. In the way of tables I recommend a cheap folding table. If you're just practising at home, then it will be high enough quality. Even if you want a competitive match, provided you don't want to play official tournaments on it!
HAVE YOU BEEN WANTING TO START TO PLAY TABLE TENNIS?
DO YOU ALREADY PLAY BUT WANT TO LEARN A FEW NEW THINGS?
OR EVEN JUST WANT A FEW TIPS AND TRICKS HERE AND THERE?
I WILL BE ADDING NEW VIDEOS ON HOW TO PLAY AND UPDATING OTHER TIPS AND TRICKS REGULARLY.
If you have any questions or requests, let me know.
Everyone makes mistakes, especially me! However, I don't want mistakes sticking out like a sore thumb in my work! So, if you happen to spot an error, whether it be a fact that I've wrong, said something that you dispute or if I've made a typo, please don't hesitate to post a comment on this post so I can go and fix it. Thanks.
The hypothesis Poll
What grip do you play with?
I love playing table tennis (in fact, all racquet sports) and the strategy and science behind them, so I figured I might as well share my knowledge.
