The DORMILONA is a racquet that only exists padel. It is a question of making a damping on an opponent's smash that hit the back wall.

The ball is supposed to fall right behind the net with a retro effect. For the most successful shots, it can even happen that the ball out of the field with a side effect or that the ball comes back in his camp with a huge retro effect.

To succeed in this move, it is important to have fully grasped the meaning of anticipation at padel. Then, you have to be able to orient the head of the racket towards the sky and to make a very cut blow by using strongly your wrist while throwing it forward. Some players even go so far as to finish the racquet run with the sieve pointed slightly towards their own camp.

By the way, DORMILONA means “The Marmot” in Spanish… In short, it is better to continue to call this move DORMILONA; It’s much more classy!
