Making the most of the court in padel

Padel is a sport that blends the best of tennis and squash. To up your game, it's crucial to make the most of different parts of the court:

The Baseline

  • Stay Active: Move forward and backward to adjust to the ball’s trajectory.
  • Use Topspin: Adding topspin to your shots makes it harder for your opponent to return and gives you time to reposition.

The Net

  • Positioning: Stand about a meter from the net, ready to move.
  • Volley and Smash: Use volleys and smashes to finish points quickly and keep the pressure on.

The Glass Walls

  • Defensive Play: Let the ball bounce off the glass walls to buy yourself time and get into a better position.
  • Offensive Play: Surprise your opponent with shots that rebound off the walls at tricky angles.

The Corners

  • Defensive Tactics: When pressed into a corner, use the walls to get the ball back into play. A high lob can give you time to recover and reposition.
  • Attack Angles: Aim for the corners to force difficult returns from your opponent.

Play Smart

  • Mix It Up: Alternate between long and short shots, fast and slow balls to keep your opponent guessing.
  • Communication: If playing doubles, communicate with your partner to cover more ground effectively.

By leveraging all areas of the court, you can enhance your padel game and become a more versatile player. Practice using each part of the court and watch your game improve dramatically!
