      You only need to accelerate faster to get more spin.

      Getting more spin on serves requires fast and thin brushing contact.

      There are lots of videos on YT showing how to generate various spins. Here is a very simple one:

      Sidespin, hit the ball at the side. Backspin, hit the ball under the ball. accelerate fast with your wrist and maybe forearm so you brush the ball as thin and as fast as possible. A higher throw can also help, but then you need to accelerate even faster.

      But i think spin i overrated, hard to fool someone with spin with these balls. Deception, variation, placement and getting a return that you want is also very important. Do not just focus on the amount of spin.

      also try brushing the ball not with the central part of the racket, but with the part which is furthest from the handle (for example top part of the blade for pendulum serve) where the biggest angular velocity is

      Practice making the ball spin on the floor and on your bed. Practicing at the table makes you focus on the serve which is bad for developing the spinning skills.
