The Padel Backhand despite being one of the earliest shots you learn in padel, can be one of the more difficult to master. Players often find it difficult getting the correct distance from the ball, which leads to the contact being in the wrong place. If they’ve come from tennis they are usually confident with the slice backhand, but might struggle more hitting the flat backhand. But it is important to hit the ball flat!

In this video we cover the 3 most common errors that players have when it comes to the Padel Backhand. The technique should be simple, so that the result is consistent and accurate.

The 3 most common errors are: 1. Not Using Left Hand Correctly 2. Contact Too Far Forward 3. Use Wrong Spin

Sandy focused his attention from tennis to padel in 2010, learning the game with several trips and courses in Spain. His education in Sports Biomechanics, combined with playing and coaching at an international level (both in tennis and now padel) puts him in a great position to share his insights in the sport, hopefully helping others learn in the process.
