Corkscrew spin is mostly used in the serve of advanced table tennis players. It is difficult to produce corkscrew spin without a high toss on the serve. The ball slightly curves left or right in the air although it has a very sharp landing. After the ball has hit the table, it moves sideways (left or right), but this is slightly different from sidespin. Corkscrew spin puts the axis of the ball straight at you and through the opposite side. Sidespin puts the axis of the ball from the top through the bottom of it.
