The Walls Course
In padel defending the corners of the court is one of the most difficult aspects of the game. It is an area that is unlike any other racket sport, as the variety of rebounds is so vast. As a player learning the sport, there are certain signs to look for to anticipate how the ball will rebound and specific movements that help a player get into the right position. Without instruction, it is very difficult for a player to learn this part of the game. One of the most important aspects to learning these shots properly is to practice. Many players volley and half-volley the ball to avoid using the glass, as they do not have confidence. But the player will never gain an understanding of the rebounds, and therefore confidence, if they do not allow the ball to bounce in the corner.
Summary: Players must practice using the glass to become proficient.
