Can you spin the ball? was created by Jane London
Sometimes I could barely return a regular ball shot by my opponent, so I don't hope much for now. I would love to be able to learn the simplest spin for my shots, though, just to bring the game to a slightly higher level. What is the easiest way to learn the spins, especially if you are not very athletic in table tennis?

As lame as it is to say, you just need to keep practicing. My table tennis table has the option to put it up halfway (I think most do) so that you can play against yourself. Try flicking your wrist in different ways. You'll be surprised how the smallest movement can really change up the game!

No, I absolutely can't. I tried table tennis after watching some women playing it in the dorm and it looked so easy. I thought it would be relaxing to play. In reality, I found it's much more difficult and takes more finesse and concentration than I possess. I'm doing good just to stay in the game.
