The great coach Severino Iezzi (Seve) tells us everything about how to build a pair:

I was born and raised in Mar de Plata, the cradle of the padel. In this city, the padel is very popular and has given great players (Cristian Gutierrez, Juan Martin Diaz, Leo Padovani and many others).

I teach at the Golf Canal, and lead the methodological part of the school Get Indoor. Finally, I am the coach of the 3 number pair of WPT Matías Díaz and Maxi Sánchez.

Choose the ideal pair or build the best pair:

In this article, I will try to help you build a pair of padel. I note that this note is for the social padel, so I am referring to amateur players.

  1. Set my true level

It's very important to be realistic with your own level of play. This way there will be less frustration for both players. Finding a partner with the same ambitions will be easier.

  1. Similar or similar ages

Being a partner in the padel is more than in many other sports. It is better to be friends and have common interests and relationships. Obviously there are pairs with great age differences and they work but it's a general feeling that I saw in my career.

  1. Complicity

To form a team, you have to be an accomplice. It is therefore recommended to share something other than the moments spent on the field.

  1. Geographical and socio-cultural proximity

To get a pair that works, she has to train regularly. However, partners who do not live in the same place can make it difficult to perform these practices and games.

  1. Position in the field

This is an important point as we are always looking for a partner that complements our own shortcomings and allows the team to be stronger.

Our preference will always be for a player who plays on the opposite side of ours, but it is always recommended to learn to play on both sides of the pitch.

The reason is not only to learn to learn, but there may be side changes during a point.

The help of a padel teacher can also help to target the partners I need. The teacher will be able for example to validate my level of padel and thus target the partners having this same level. Then we can filter the potential partners according to his age, my complicity with him, which side he plays, etc.

To conclude, we must never forget that we play padel for fun. This is the main goal.
