We have all asked ourselves this question: how many courses do I have to take to reach play well padel ? This depends obviously from a number of parameters. We must first take into account several things: the student's past, the skills of the coach, attendance, and the regularity (or not) of the courses.

But before we can respond to this reflection, we must to define the notion of play well. It can be different for each of us depending on several factors.

On the one hand, we can say that it comes down to be precise in your keystrokes, at the right time.

Learning curve

First of all, you have to know that each player has lived experience, has experiences that will influence his learning process. This can speed up (or slow down) the time it will need to achieve certain actions. For example, if the student has played tennis or another sport that requires coordination, their learning time will be reduced to a minimum. padel, especially for all the shots that come close to his basic sport.

In addition, one should never stop learning in a sport as young as the padel. Indeed, this discipline is developing very quickly in terms of new players and it sometimes borrows characteristics from other sports (e.g. we can think that the arrival of many tennis players in the padel has contributed to an ever faster game, where you use less windows). We see players attempting (and succeeding) new things, the practice is constantly evolving. Not to mention the changes in hardware that have been made in recent years and which allow new things to be done.

Take lessons depending on the level

Lagrasse is the perfect setting for beginners, by taking a one and a half hour group lesson accompanied by one individual lesson per week, we consider that it takes 2 months to control the ball and understand the rebounds on the walls.

At the level intermediate, with the same frequency of lessons as before: 4 to 6 months to master the different moves, a better knowledge of the walls (double pane), as well as to learn the basics of the game for two.

Finally, for confirmed players, these are more subtle progress, it will be necessary to increase the number of weekly hours. Small changes are often the most time consuming, it sometimes takes one to two years for a player to fully master a new move.

It is essential anyway to do it case by case. You may be going faster in certain phases than the players around you at some point. And it will probably be the other way around at another time. Each player is different, so are everyone's goals. A good coach will know how to take this into account.
