Although the skills required to play Padel Tennis and Lawn Tennis look similar, there are some big technical and tactical differences between the two sports. To hit effective groundstrokes in Padel the swing path needs to be flatter. Players also need to move forward when the opponents are hitting overheads and learn how the ball reacts off the glass walls at the back and sides of the court. All these ideas feel very different for tennis players!
If you are interested in learning how to play Padel tennis in the correct way. You can sign up for adult and junior weekly coaching sessions and book private lessons at the following link:
The Padel Tennis interclub leagues have also started. If you are interested or want any more information on Padel tennis at Roehampton Club, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
