How to Play Offensive in Ping Pong

Playing and learning to enjoy Ping pong takes short time to learn but years to master. Ping pong is definitely a wonderful game when played professionally. Choosing your playing style from the beginning of your journey is the key to your success.
Ping Pong involves three main styles of playing ping pong: 1- offensive -2- Defensive -3-Neutral. In offensive style you want to mainly strike loops, top-spins, and smashes. The key to success is this style is to have the perfect form and drive, good concentration and of course great reflexes.
First thing one must do before playing ping pong is to warm up before playing. This is very important in order for you and for your body not to feel pain. Start by warming up in-game by just hitting the ball with the bat slow then moderate then fairly fast. By this way you are adapting your body to react to different speeds of the ball. Never use spin in a warm up.
Need more practice, practice makes perfect like they said. Get a friend to hit the ball for you with no spin. As soon as the ball bounces on your side of the table and reaches the peak of its bounce, start the forehand topspin drive to hit the ball. Make sure to hit the ball with your racket closed and partially tilted to the right as this will cause the ball to get side spin as well.
One should know that the loop drive is the primary attacking stroke of serious players today. Players not used to this stroke may find it the most tiring for the first time. Try to understand that depending on the characteristic of the incoming ball, the loop must be modified to hit the ball correctly. This means keeping a sharp eye on the ball throughout the stroke is important, as it is for all other strokes.
Forehand Loop, from the ready position, bring the right foot slightly back at the same time, rotate your body backward, and the paddle should be brought back and slightly down, depending on which spin you are hitting against. The weight should be completely transferred back to the left foot at this point. In backhand Loop, this time, the back swing goes in front of your legs, and to do so you should drop your right shoulder somewhat. Remember to keep the eye on the ball no matter what the other parts of your body are doing. Rotate your waist to the left and transfer the weight to the left foot. Since a lot of paddle speed is required in this stroke, the extra back swing, bending of the knees, and the usual waist rotation and weight transfer are all needed, not to mention the wrist snap at contact. A forward graze will produce higher speeds, but they can only be used on relatively high balls at the top of their bounce.
In forehand Drive, you should keep the upper arm close, but not flush, to the torso. The forearm should be drawn back to the 3 o'clock position, and let the waist turn naturally along with the arm. In backhand Drive, from the ready position, the waist turns left with the racket pointing towards the 9 o'clock position. Make sure the paddle is closed. Follow-through should finish naturally about 12~1 o'clock after contact with ball.
These are the advanced and basic terms of playing ping pong. Players should follow this in order for them to cope up with the sport.
