Overview Text Section
The flip or flick is a quick stroke performed on short balls near the net. It uses mostly the wrist and forearm, and produces a fast ball with moderate to little topspin. It is a critical stroke for the short game and allows you to control the rally by placing a quick ball in a good location against your opponent or even finishing the point.

Tips for the Flip Stroke Text Section
- Step in with the right foot.
Your right foot should step in deep under the table to be in proper position.
- Hit at the top of the bounce.
Make contact when the ball is at its highest height.
- Aim at the opponent's elbow or an open area.
Choose a location that gives you an advantage, which is at the opponent's crossover point (elbow) or at the extreme angles to the sides.
- Try to maximize speed while maintaining control.
The flip is the most useful when fast, with just enough topspin to make the ball arc down toward the table instead of missing long. Aim for speed, not spin.
