Here are two offensive shots padel and want to be definitive: the 4 and the smash to the feet.

By 4 is a smash so powerful that it passes the wall opposite just after the rebound in the opposite party. The opposing wall making 4 meters, it is commonly called by 4.

The smash at the feet a rather flat powerful shot in the opponent's feet realized when the ball is not high enough to make one by 4 for example or other types of smashes.

The 4 PAR

Problematic

You are in attack, the net and the blow you just played is quality. The opponent is cornered at the bottom of the court and tries to lob, his ball rises but with little speed.

Solution:

the 4: this is a smash whose point of impact on the ground is close to you and rises very high, It is hoped that the ball out of the ground by passing over the bottom wall located to 4 meters hence its Spanish name "por 4" that can be translated simply "by 4"

The points to remember to make this move

  1. Have support online
  2. Move towards the ball
  3. Give a wrist to impose a rebound very close to you

The smash on the feet

Problematic

Same situation as before but the ball rises little.

Solution:

the strong smash with the feet: it is here about a smash whose point of impact on the ground is close to the feet of the opponent which is in front. The idea is that he does not have the physical time to react and therefore to surprise him by the change of rhythm.

The points to remember to make this move

  1. Have support online
  2. Move towards the ball
  3. Aim a deep point of the ground the line can be a good visual reference
