KINEMATICS OF TABLE TENNIS TOPSPIN FOREHANDS: EFFECTS OF PERFORMANCE LEVEL AND BALL SPIN
Keywords: table tennis, forehand, contribution, acceleration
AbstractINTRODUCTION: The topspin forehand in table tennis is an effective offensive shot especially against backspin balls. It would be interesting for coaches and players to compare the kinematics of the stroke between different performance level players and between different ball spins. The purpose of this study was to clarify whether performance level and ball spin affect the kinematics of the table tennis topspin forehand.
