Pips, or pimples, are the little nubs that protrude from a single side of a rubber. Rubbers can have short pips or long pips. Short pips usually have use in close-to-table and reactive counter play styles. This is because it generates a lot less spin than a smooth surface rubber and also does well in absorbing spin.

Spin is imparted onto a ball by using a tangential brushing action with your racket. Do this with your racket at less than a 90 degree angle. Use an upwards, downwards, or sideways movement. The faster a racket brushes a ping pong ball, the faster it will spin.
When you pick a ping pong paddle, go for a handle that suits your grip. The basic rule is the penhold grip require a penhold or short handle, while the shakehand grip needs a longer handle (which can be straight, flared or anatomical).
