In the previous post, we saw and analyzed how the low volley is in padel, in this post, we will see how to incorporate it into a play.

We will start looking when we can do a back volley.

  • A shot from an opponent complicates us particularly and thus, we do a volley on it.
  • We are not skilled enough with the walls.
  • We see this option as a backlash.
    • Reduce the time between the shot and shot of the opponent to lose initiative.
    • With ease, we choose a chiquita or lob to do a backlash or to win in the net.

The beginning of this play appears mainly from a need to save a situation that complicates us or that is difficult to solve. How many times you played a game with wet crystals, with wet carpet, or simply there is a shot from an opponent that we let pass to the wall and is difficult for us to defend.

Today, we will see item one that, in my opinion, is the most used.

For that, there is something key that we must understand: to do a volley in a bandeja/víbora from an opponent, we must position correctly in the court to benefit us with the situation.

Be correctly positioned as we seen in the previous video, gives us a better start point to execute the needed shot because continue the play tactically in a correct way is key to master the following ball.

Positioning in the court of the cross-court play.

Positioning in the court of the parallel play.

Once we understand how to make the play, we must understand how to follow it to benefit us with the situation because continue the play correctly let my partner anticipate mi intention and thus, save time and field in the court.

It is important to understand well this type of plays in padel because if they are practiced and have a good result, they are a weapon for defense in the first place and secondly a backlash.

Now, the most important: ¿How to train it? ¿How can we do a progression to make a full play? Because the padel is a precision game, the defense and backlash are as important as a good attack.

Here, in these seven exercises we can train from the beginning of the play to the real situation. It is clear that the range of possibilities to create games is broad, so, I invite you to share a game/exercise related to this situation in the comments so all the followers of the blog have more tools when teaching.

Greetings! See you soon!
