Do you have the level to carry out PAR 3, these famous smashes coming out of the field? Your opponents get out of the field and can counter your smash, but you don't know where to stand? Then this little padel tutorial is for you.

In reality, it's quite simple: When you make a PAR 3, get as close to the net as possible. You almost have to stick it. Indeed, the defender, the player who leaves the field to defend your par 3 has several possibilities:

Either he puts the ball gently over the fence of the opposing party so that the ball can fall into your court. You will therefore move back a little and try to take advantage of the fact that there is only one player left on the field to complete the point.

Either the defender puts the ball back through the door. And in this case, it is advantageous that the spammer and his partner are not too passive and can cover the area of the net. Indeed, the defender can make â € œsmall netâ €, that is to say, return the ball into the net on the opposing side or even put the ball back into the net. It will be necessary to avoid that the ball passes by a door and finishes its course of the other side while passing by the other door. That’s why, we have to stay very active and position ourselves well when performing a PAR3.

Here is a short video to illustrate our point:
