Bandeja From Scratch!

Bandeja From Scratch!

This video explains one of the more difficult shots to learn: THE BANDEJA We start from a beginner level and illustrate the steps for learning the shots and what you should be looking to try and do with the ball.

The basic steps are: – Turn your body early – Racket back high and pointing up – Move feet into position – Contact infront – Move back fast to the net Like with most shots the key is the preparation, fast early movement gets you in a good position and then makes it easier to follow the rest of the tips.

This shot (above most of them) really does require practice. You cannot just expect to bring this into a match, because a lot of it is about confidence. Either practice on your own (as shown in the video) or ask a friend/coach to feed you balls.

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.
