Padel Tennis

Strategy

Not about the killer blow, but isolating an opponent and moviing them around to put them off balance and maintain front of court position to take a risk-free winner when available.

Hit to the feet. This limits options for the return.

Mantra

Forget about your last shot.

Concentrate on your process.

Your best chance to play a good shot is to get into good position.
