Paddle tennis is a sport that combines speed, strategy and technical skill. If you are looking to improve your game and take your padel tennis to the next level, we present three key tips that will help you perfect your technique and become a more competent and confident player on the court. 

  • Work on your position and mobility : Proper position on the court is essential to execute effective shots and maintain control of the game. Make sure you maintain a balanced posture, with your feet shoulder-width apart and your knees slightly bent. This will allow you to react quickly to the opponent's blows and move with agility around the court. Also practice quick changes of direction and lateral movements to improve your mobility and court coverage. As in tennis, the key is usually in the knees. 

  • Perfect your basic shots : Basic shots in padel, such as the volley, the lob and the layup, are essential to build points and maintain pressure on your opponents. Spend time perfecting the technique of each shot, paying special attention to body position, arm movement, and ball trajectory. Use repetition drills and practice regularly with a partner to develop consistency and accuracy in your shots. Each player has better and worse shots. Play intelligently and position yourself to stop receiving a drive or backhand depending on your ability with each shot.

  • Stay calm and focused : Paddle tennis is a fast and dynamic sport that requires a high level of concentration and mental control. Learn to stay calm under pressure and make smart decisions under stress. Maintain concentration on each point and focus on executing your shots with precision and determination. Also, do not underestimate the importance of communication and coordination with your playing partner, since good collaboration on the court can make the difference in the outcome of the match.

In short, improving your padel technique requires practice, patience and dedication (like almost everything in life). Follow these tips and you will see how your game will gradually transform, allowing you to enjoy this exciting sport even more. Don't wait any longer to put these tips into practice and take your game to the next level!
