Padel Magazine - Very difficult to answer very precisely. If there is indeed a base that we will try to describe here, the techniques vary from one player to another.

This technique depends a lot on the player's feeling.

The right grip of the racket is therefore essential because it is the basis of all snowshoeing that you play later.

Snowshoeing is roughly like taking a hammer tennis or squash.

There are mainly 2 types of grips of the racket:

1 / Getting started ''Padel'' or '' continental '' socket

This is the one that offers the most possibilities and is the most suitable for the execution of padel.

To take the handle not at its end but slightly towards the middle is a pledge of control.

The closer you get to the center, the more precision you gain.

However, the disadvantage of getting closer to the frame of the racket is twofold:

Loss of power, but also loss of height (detrimental especially for the attacker).

2 / The `` tennis '' grip 

The grip called "tennis" is where the hand takes the end of the handle.

It is mostly tennis players who use this jack.

This take has followers, but it seems more limited than the take “Padel”Or“ continental ”, especially in the execution of certain strokes such as the lobes.


You have to try to have a sufficiently balanced grip to be able to play all the shots of the padel.

It is advisable to get help from a teacher especially at the start.


The catch ''padelis recommended for the reasons explained above.

But if the player really feels a different feeling, why not. For experienced players, changing the grip can sometimes be necessary and more efficient The grip of your racquet should above all allow you to feel at ease especially with the cut shots which are the most commonly used effects at padel.
