3 Common Errors – The Serve

3 Common Errors – The Serve

These padel serve tips apply to players of every level…so too do these common errors!!!

In this video we cover the 3 most common errors that players have when it comes to the Padel Serve. The technique should be simple, so that the result is a consistent and accurate padel serve. Often players complicate the technique to hit a deceptive spin on the ball or to throw their opponent off. But complicated swing paths or contacts are more likely to lead to mistakes.

Players also try to hit the ball fast before they have mastered the simple technique. But accuracy is more important than speed. When it comes to the tactics of the serve, players often make the mistake of watching their serve (to see if it is in or a good serve), instead of running straight to the net position.

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.
