you can start by returning them the same way you have already learned to
return back spin and top spin- by going against the spin.
Think about it, a ball comes to you with backspin, try to imagine an arrow
on the ball that indicates the direction of the spin, you then proceed to
push back directly against that arrow. (this is only one option, btw, but
it is good for now). If you push back with exactly the same amount of force
as what came to you, you will create a "dead" ball (no spin), but if you
push more, you will create some backspin of your own (so the spin has been
reversed). If you don't create enough, probably the ball will hit the net.
the same logic applies to how you are returning topspins. The ball comes
with top so you are hitting over it, thus creating some topspin of your own
to counteract what came to you. In this case, you might also be letting the
spin grip your paddle, but the angle is directing it back onto the table.
(that was option 2)
Sidespins are the same. You have many options. The first option is the one
that we all experience as a beginner: we just let the ball grip our paddle
and of course it usually flies right off the table. However, with just a
little experimentation you will be able to adjust the angle of your blade
such that the ball will bounce back onto the table once it hits your paddle.
The other option is the reverse the spin of the sidespin, just like how you
handle backspins, but now you must go sideways. You counteract the
sidespin, and depending how much you do so you either create a dead ball for
your opponent or put some sidespin of your own.
The third option is more advanced, here you go "with" the spin. This is
similar to trying to loop a backspin, except now you are doing it sideways.
Hope this helps (and just wait until you try to return reverse corkscrew
serves like schlager uses)
