To close this first time of volleys in padel, I here it is the link to go over if you do not watch it. https://www.rodriovide.com/en/learn-with-me/
It is true that this topic is broad and we could continue open subtopics, but in order to study it in an organized way and in progression, I thought this way.
The final topic in this first part are the small volleys in the net. Most of the messages I receive in the social media are about “where to play the low volley”.
I hope clarify it in this post.
We must follow three guidelines if we want to do a good small play in the net.
It seems easy to say but it requires good sensibility and control that may be practiced with simple ball management games in short distance and in a very low speed.
In this case, you need more training and to know the best tactical options to not be misplaced or to not to take unnecessary risks.
Here, many times we choose the shot without thinking and being always the same, for example, Backhand volley to the grid (from the backhand) and I see that, in many cases, it is not the best option at that time but almost always done by ignorance of what would happen when you do not choose well.
If we analyze the technical part of this performance, it is important to reach the ball “in strong way”, with this I mean:
With these, those characteristics we can have CONTROL in the performance to play tactically the right option and that it is correct with the three previously mentioned items.
In the videos, we will see which the best options are and how to understand them tactically.
