Topspin Drill
For this drill you’ll need to be working with a partner.

– Stand facing each other with your rackets directly in front of you and held out at waist height. The rackets should overlap.

– Have your partner drop the ball in front of the rackets and keep their racket still.

– Move your racket over your partner’s and back under in order to hit the ball, creating a big circle around your partner’s racket.

The action of your racket will force the correct “brush up” movement and you’ll both feel it and instantly see the ball revolutions. It may not look like much, but this drill is immensely powerful!

Note that you can still practice without a partner if you visualize a racket being there that you need to maneuver around, but having the real thing there is better when possible.
