Au Padel as in life, it is very important to behave in a courteous and responsible manner during the various matches. In this column, we will talk about the rules of "good behavior" for the player of Padel.
Often times when we go to play in certain tournaments we end up with a few players who are in the provocation as soon as they enter a field of Padel.
Here are our 10 rules of good conduct:
- To be punctual. Arrive on time for your game.
- Wear appropriate clothing and footwear for the practice of Padel. Do not use swimsuits or street shoes on rough terrain. Padel.
- Once the match has started, you must play in a linear fashion, without interrupting the match.
