Shots to hit

Tactics to use

Avoid bad habits at the start

Because starting with padel can feel pretty easy, people do not consider to take any classes when starting with the game. We often see that starting without lessons usually results in a lot of bad padel habits. 

We highly recommend to take classes at the beginning of your padel career to make sure you'll understand the basic techniques and concepts to give yourself a stable base to work from. It's crucial to understand the basic positioning to make sure you stay ahead of your opponents.

This course sets you on the right path to learn the game!

Benefit from experience

We have introduced the game to literally thousands of players - the majority of which make the same mistakes. Avoid those errors by learning these tips!

Step by step

The course is in a specific order of learning for the players. Starting with the basic grip and taking you through all the shots you need to learn padel.


Each week has two lessons - one discussing the subject and how to achieve the correct result, the second gives common errors and weekly objectives.

Why choose The Padel School?

Learn the Basics Course

I have been playing for a year, is this course relevant for me?

This course is designed to cover the important basics. So if you have received good coaching from the start of your padel journey, you might’ve covered all of these areas. But if you have not received much coaching (or any), this will almost certainly be useful.

Is this course only technique?

We discuss a few areas I would call “pre-technique”, things like the grip, stances etc, then we cover some techniques for important shots and finally lead into a more tactical area of “How to Play”, so a bit of everything!

Should I work on these things in my matches?

The idea of all the online training is to give you a base understanding of the shots. With our online students we recommend focusing on one area at a time (maximum two), so you can really work on it. When you feel confident with that part, move onto the next!

How long will I have access to the course?

You will be able to access the course for 1 year from the date of purchase.

Can I buy individual videos?

Unfortunately not, we believe it is important to have the instruction in context so we want to provide the entire course so you have the full picture!

Will the course cover the mistakes that I am making?

We have designed these courses from hundreds of questions from players, so that we cover all of the most common mistakes. Even if you feel that your error is slightly different, almost certainly the ‘root’ of the problem will be covered in the content.

How often can I watch the videos?

This is one of the best things about online learning - you can watch them as often as you like!!

Do you do online coaching?

Yes, we have a 12 week in depth training program for players that want to transform their padel. There is a course curriculum, personalised video content, homework, 1-1 calls and much more...but be prepared, it is a lot of work - that’s why we call it The Padel College!!

Do you do in-person lessons?

The majority of our in-person lessons are clinics organised with clubs. If this is something you think your club might be interested in, please feel free to put us in touch with the club.

I am a beginner, is this course for me?

The idea of all the courses is to breakdown more complex techniques to make it easier for players to learn. Some of the courses talk about advanced shots, but we will always start from the beginning to help new players to learn them!

Can I pay with credit card/Paypal?

Yes, you can pay with whichever method you prefer, both are setup.

What benefits do I receive as a member?

Great question - as a member of the site you have FULL ACCESS to all the courses (which is already a lot of videos)! You also will be able to access our private community - here we share any information on upcoming workshops, early access to content and advice to any questions you might have! Plus you will get a reduced price if you want to get any further coaching or products! Oh and we will also throw in some live padel webinars only for members!

Will The Padel School make me a better player?

That is genuinely our mission! It is the reason we posted our first video many years ago and it is the reason we continue to produce so much content now! 90% of the content and videos we make now is in response to a question or problem a member/viewer is having in their padel game!

Why should I listen to The Padel School?

Essentially it is your choice whether to listen or not, but we can tell you why we feel the information we provide is valuable. Sandy’s education in Sports Biomechanics (BSc & MSc) focused on human movement patterns, combined with years of coaching tennis at the elite level gave him a base to learn this new sport from scratch...and that is what he did! 10 years ago Sandy did his first padel coaching qualification and every year since has spent time in Spain with the best coaches in the sport. As much time as Sandy spends with his students he tries to spend working with other coaches, learning their different styles and training methods. He truly believes this knowledge is for sharing!

Why is it so important for you that players improve their padel?

For us, padel is one of the easiest racket sports to start playing. Yes, the game gets more complex and physical the higher your level, but to start it is accessible to almost everyone! If we can help players improve their padel, they usually enjoy the sport and want to play more - this leads to a healthier and more active lifestyle. We are certain that padel can transform lives, of those that might not otherwise participate in sport, for the better!
