USC Tennis & Padel offers courses to learn the game or to improve your skills, at different levels:
You have no experience in racket sports. we start from the beginning and build up to the basic strokes. You learn forehand, backhand, volley, smash and lobs: the most important strokes in padel! We will also discuss the rules of the game in detail.
You have some experience in racket sports and you can play a forehand and backhand back and forth a number of times (5x or more). The same goes for the volley. In this course, we improve the strokes from the back of the court and the volley. We also teach you how to do a padel lob and smash.
You have padel experience and / or you already feel quite confident in the strokes from the back of the court, you can play these back and forth 10 times or more. You can also maintain a rally at the net, while volleying. You know the rules. We will mainly focus on the volley and how you can best build points. Lobs are being practiced and we are going to start on playing back via the walls. You will also practice some match situations.
You have been playing padel for a while and are looking to improve your game! You can play rallies from the back and at the net (10x back and forth, or more), and you are also familiar with lobs and smashes. In this course we will focus more on working with the walls and how you can take over that net position. We will also prepare you to be able to win matches using tactics.
You have mastered all basic strokes. Forehand, backhand, volleys, lobs and smashes can be played back in a targeted manner and 15x or more. Now it’s time to get started on the advanced strokes: the chiquita and bandeja. These are two strokes that are very different from the other strokes and where some experience in tennis might even work against you. We’re also working on perfecting your other strokes, as well as on using the walls.
