In padel, you can see many ways to hold a pala. Neymar, the football champion has a technical his own at paddle : The index which grips at the heart of the racket!
Let’s not make fun! Even if, the technique is at least atypical. It is especially dangerous for the football player, because he could very easily break a finger and have to suspend his football career for an obvious reason: NEVER PUT FINGERS IN THE TRIANGLE OF PALA.
Ultimately, the accident is almost inevitable. A little awkwardness, a particular exchange, a stampede with the partner and it is the finger that breaks.
Dear Neymar, make a jump as soon as possible HERE to avoid injury.
The triangle or heart of the racket is where the sieve is connected to the pala handle. The heart of the racket is most often composed of vacuum and is used to absorb the impact of the ball and thus reduce the effects of vibration. Brands have invested a lot in this area to avoid or postpone the famous “padel elbow” as much as possible.
