3 Simple Techniques For Playing Padel Tennis

3 Simple Techniques For Playing Padel Tennis

If you’ve ever played padel tennis, you know how important quick recognition and positioning are. The best players don’t have the luxury of standing at the net. They are on the ground 50 percent of the time, so they must have good positioning and quick recognition. In this article, we’ll take a look at the Overhead smash, Middle-approach shot, and Lob.

Overhead smash:

The Overhead smash is one of the most common strokes played by tennis players. It requires a little bit of athleticism and racket skill to pull off, but it can be a useful tool in a game. Players should aim to hit the ball with as much force as possible while maintaining the proper alignment of their bodies and hips. They should also use their wrist to direct the ball in the proper direction.

To practice this stroke, tape off a section of the court and hit overheads to a partner. Then, try hitting lobs back and forth with your partner to respond. Make sure to aim straight ahead, as aiming straight ahead will lead to more contact in front.

Middle-approach shot:

The proper slice groundstroke is an almost level swing with a slight downward movement, an open racquet face, and no wrist break. The result is depth and underspin. In contrast, a short, violent downward chopping movement will produce less depth. A proper slice should be easy to execute and hit the ball with a smooth, level stroke.

Recognition and positioning of the ball:

Playing paddle tennis is an excellent sport for beginners, and there are several simple techniques you can try to improve your game. One of the most important techniques is to improve your recognition and positioning of the ball. When playing padel tennis, the top players don’t have the advantage of being up at the net, so it’s important to know how to position yourself and hit the ball accurately.

To start, move inside the baseline and play a short volley off the returner’s drive. If the ball is going deep, hit the deep lob to drive your partner back. If you have an advantage, try to lob or drive from behind the baseline. If your opponent plays defensively, move back. You can also make your partner move forward with a blitz or lob.
