Footwork for Padel

Footwork for Padel

In this video we breakdown the footwork needed for padel, starting with players that are new to racket sports and then we look at the differences between tennis and padel footwork.

Good footwork is a crucial part of preparation and that all starts with the split step. Not doing a split step is probably the most common movement error for new players. This bounce on the toes initiates your explosive movement and helps you react to the oncoming ball.

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.
