    Chop

    When I do the chop, it doesn't seem to work for me. Either I end up giving too much backspin and it doesn't even travel to the opponent's court instead gets to my net or I try to make it so deceptive that I miss it. How to improve this?

    You haven't mentioned, whether your're chopping with a regular inverted rubber, or a pimpled one.. whether it's BH or FH, and against what type of stroke - I'll assume it's against Top-Spin ..

    Anyway, whatever it is, First, get the basics right .. .Don't go for deception, or other such advance tricks.. .. Just get the basic stroke mechanics, and aim to get the ball on the table, consistently...

    But putting backspin is not advanced, right? I have seen how to do the chop. But I am asking for tips to drop the ball on table by using chop and putting backspin, you know. I play with an inverted rubber and am trying to do the backhand chop. The stroke against which I play it depends.

    The OP obviously needs some professional 1:1 coaching.

    Obviously, having in mind his other posts.

    You!! Original Poster, I think!!

    Over the table, backspin is imparted by a ‘push’, well depending on how you execute, little/no spin, medium back spin and heavy back spin. So a ‘basic’ stroke such as a push, has a few variations and slight technical differences. These variations would be taught AFTER the basic stroke has been mastered.

    Chopping is behind / away from the table, these days is not really included as a ‘basic’ table tennis stroke. Many would class it on the advanced / specialist side of things. Simply because today’s modern table tennis is attacking orientated. However chopping is a great defensive stroke to have in your armoury!!
    But if you are just starting out I would leave chopping alone until you have mastered the basic strokes.

    When you first start playing the ‘basic’ strokes are-
    Serve
    BH drive
    FH drive
    BH push
    FH push
    serve receive.
    You should also be taught grip(s), ready position and basic movement.

    Once these are well grounded in then doors will open up for other stroke’s, for example
    FH drive - FH top spin - FH loop that sort of thing.

    As Langel advised get some one to one coaching, or at least some group coaching sessions,

    Mainly, get training / playing and enjoy it, don’t strive for too much too soon. You seen to be very enthusiastic and probably fairly young, so you will hopefully pick things up pretty quickly and if you apply yourself well and learn the basics then the other strokes to learn will follow quickly!!
    A good coach should be able to blend in serious and fun routines within a coaching session. FUN should definitely be in there!!! 😁

    Chopping is difficult with most inverted rubbers. Most are too bouncy.
    What are you trying to chop with? You don't want rubbers or pips that are too bouncy or have too much grip.
    It takes practice because you not only need to get the ball back, it must be low and deep or the looper will attack it.
    Don't bother with a coach unless he can chop. Also, the coach better be able to loop consistently for you. Otherwise, you will spend a lot of time picking up balls. If there is no suitable coach then practice against a robot until you are good enough where someone will be willing to practice their loops against your chop. That is what I did.
    This is one of my favorites

    Try doing some self-training at backspin BH and FH serves at home. It is all about 'feel the ball', same thing applies to both serves and returns.

    Mr. IB66, I wonder that you live in which country. Do you know there's a virus named COVID-19 in the whole earth currently that's creating havoc? I dare say, you shouldn't think your virus-free country is similar to others. In India, there's currently lockdown. So I want to know where did you hatch the 1:1 professional training idea? To me, only a madman can hatch such ideas during this current state of every country (apparently except yours). I'm only watching the few free videos on table tennis I can get on YouTube. So what do mean by learn basics first? What do you mean by Original poster? I generally don't lose my temper, but you're very rough compared to the others and quite trying also. Sorry if I am rude but you'll have to cope.

    Currently there are no lockdowns in Europe. In most European countries more than 50% of the population is vaccinated.
    1:1 coaching is ok.
    Here, in Bulgaria, the population is vaccinated only 17% and it seams that we are in the beginning of a knew wave, but we still are not in lockdown, so we have tournaments every day, as well as coaching.
